This vaccination schedule has been reviewed by Dr. Robin Skillman, D.V.M., and is used successfully by several breeders in the Northern California Area. Please be sure to check with your own veterinarian for their recommendations and approval. At all times check the package instructions of all products for dosages and proper storage.
At birth l/4 cc Bo-Se to all newborn kids.
Other vaccines recommended by Dr. Skillman are: J-5, E-Coli, (give at 3 and 4 months of age to kids and to pregnant does at 3 & 4 months gestation), Pastuerella, Leptospirosis, and Rabies. Rabies should be given to kids at 3 and l2 months and to adults every 3 years. Again, consult with your veterinarian or Dr. Skillman as to schedule for these vaccines. Worm every three months or as required by condition of animal or fecal exam. Wormers recommended by Dr. Skillman are Ivomec injectible for Cattle, Cydectin, given orally or as a pour on, Dectomax, Tramisol, Valbazen, Safeguard/Panacur.
Copper is very important for goats. Use a mineral block or loose mineral formulated for goats with the proper amount of Copper. Sweetlix makes both goat blocks and loose minerals. Both are balanced with many minerals required by goats.
Before Breeding Does
30 days before kidding Dr. Skillman recommends giving Covexin 8, A&D, Bo-Se and deworming. (If you do not choose to treat pregnant does follow the schedule below. (If you do not give Covexin 8 at this time kids should be given 2cc CD Antitoxin at birth, I.M. and thereafter follow schedule above for Covexin 8.
At time of kidding give doe and babies Bo-Se. Day or two after kidding worm. 2 days later give Covexin 8 booster, A&D. Now the doe is ready to be bred when kids are weaned.
Note: Dr. Skillman has recommended that you calendar your bucks and does for a Bo-Se vaccination every 3 months even if the does are bred. Please check with your own veterinarian for their recommendation. Warning: The manufacturers of Bo-Se have put a warning on the label stating NOT to give Bo-Se to any pregnant animals. Vaccination of pregnant animals may possibly result in abortions. It is recommended you give your growing animals Bo-Se every sixty (60) days. I do this until they’re 18 months old.
