    I use this vaccine on my goats. I was told to give it once every 6 months instead of yearly as it wears off faster in goats than sheep. It did make some of mine sore for a day or so but then they were fine. Not all were sore it depended on the specic spot I gave the injection. A few were left with some granular knots but 95% had no lumps left at all. You can get a specific vaccine for your herd made that is much better and you only have to give once a year, and the ones that do have CL won't get any more abscesses, while the case-bac does nothing for the already infected animals.
