    I did a search but could not find an answer to my question. Sorry.

    My buckling is two days old today. 4-10-08. How soon can I give him CD&T and what dosage? The same question applies for BoSe as well. Thanks.

    Bose is 1/4 to 2 day old kid depending on how big he is I give 1/4 to my 4 lb mini's
    CD/T I don't give until abt 3 wks old if the dam was given all her shots prior to freshening.
    if not then I give tetnus antitoxin when disbudding and then start my CD/T 10 days later.

    I do 1/2 cc Bo-Se on my 8-12 lb Alpine kids.

    I just gave him a 1/4 cc Bo-Se a few hours ago before I saw Beth's post. Is it okay for me to do another 1/4 dose later today or tomorrow. Or is 1/4 cc dose okay? He is 8.1 lbs this morning.

    I have the basics of this written down in "From birth to kidding" as a reference until you want to tweak it for yourself for your goats or area. Vicki

    Either would be fine. If it makes you feel better to do the extra 1/4cc, then go ahead. He should be just fine with what he's already gotten.

    Thank you Beth.
    And that you too Vicki. I will take another look at it.
