should I lutalyse BOTH?

I just brought boer goats home from county fair today; all firsts and seconds, a senior champion percentage doe who also took overall percentage grand champion and my buck took overall reserve grand champion...yippee but now to the concern. On the way home, my 41/2 month old buckling got loose in the trailer. When I arrived home, I noticed white discharge on the vulva of my 5 month old doeling. Her pen mate seems totally fine, no issues. I am going to lutalyse the first doe. Should I also lutalyse the second for insurance. I would say with 99% confidence that SHE is not bred, but if it doesn't hurt her, I'd just as soon do it. I've never lutalysed before and will probably just drive in to the vets for it.

If you want to be sure. You can give a Lute shot 7-10 days after the buck was with her. I would rather be safe then sorry.
Yes you get it from the Vet. It is only 2cc and if you have asthma DO NOT DO IT. DON'T EVEN BE OUTSIDE WHEN IT IS GIVEN. That is from experiance. :nono:
