    as I mentioned on your other topic the CD/T is a vaccine for enterotoxemia and tetanus. yes you will still need to worm and use a coccidiastate for coccidia treatment. Worms and coccidia are parasites and need different treatment then a vaccine.

    the CD/T is the basic vaccine that is used - I know there are others but they really arent necessary especially for young kids.

    the does before kidding should have their CD/T booster - yes the second shot is called a booster so its the "same thing" if your does have not have a CD/T shot before then just go ahead and give it and then follow up with the booster 21-28 days later.


    Having kids this time of year isnt uncommon but it can be hard on the does since its so hot. So keep them well hydrated and cool as possible

    yup agree with stacey

    you give them another 2cc of CD/T 21-28 days later.

    I don't deworm kids until they're 1 month old, then I'll give ivomec 1% for cattle and swine, 1cc per 25 lbs orally.
    and do that again 10 days later.

    As i wrote already

    Not sure what a "pasteries" is :?

    yes some coccidiastats can be given to pregnant goats -- some wormers arent safe.

    I suggest a Ivermectin based wormer you repeat this in 7-10 days to get the second cycle of eggs hatching

    coccidia isnt repeated in a set manor. you treat as needed - I suggest you get Dimethox from like Tractor Supply Company OR go to www.jefferslivestock.com and purchase it.
