    We have dairy goats and recently bought Boer Goats. The owner of one goat we bought told us that Boer goats are prone to over eat and they need to have CD&T shots. I have never used CD&T so I do not know what is is.

    The Boers are getting Champion goat by Hubbard Feed 18% for cocci and I am concerned about them eating too much of it.

    Lynn, I am out the door but this site has all the medications listed, what they are, dosages and routes. It's a great site. Sorry I don't have time for a full explanation. Kevin

    CD&T is the standard yearly vaccine goats and sheep need. It vaccinates against Clostridium and Tetanus - clostridium is what causes the "over eater disease", tetanus shows up in goats the same basic way it shows up in humans.
