Just preparing for my 2 Nigerian dwarf goats that are coming in a few weeks. I want to put together a first aid kit. What items, vitamins, medicines etc do you think are important to always have on hand?

Wormer (valbazen, ivermectin, safe-guard,etc.), copper bolus, maybe vitamin b complex (or nitro-drench), probiotics, wound spray (like blu-kote), etc. This is just my opinion. I’m sure I’m forgetting some things...

Here's a list I put together for the people I sell goats to:

Rectal thermometer (MUST HAVE)

Probiotic Paste (I like Probios Gel)

Powdered Electrolytes

Wonder Dust or blood stop powder

Blu-cote or a similar antiseptic product

Injectable Vitamin B complex (Anytime a goat is unhealthy, this stuff is a good idea. If they don’t need it, it won’t hurt them.)

12cc syringes and 18 gauge, 1 inch needles.

Nustock ointment (awesome for skin conditions)

Drenching Syringe

CD Antitoxin and Tetanus Antitoxin

Ammonium Chloride (This would for treatment of urinary calculi in wethers. Absolutely get this on hand if you have a wether! Urinary calculi needs to be treated very quickly so the faster you can give them this when they need it, the better)
