    I have heard of different places to give sub-Q shots so I wanted to ask y'all. Where is the best place to give a CD/T shot? Thanks,

    I don't know that it's the best...but, I give mine 1/2 way between the last rib and the elbow at the bottom of the rib cage. This way it gives the area room to swell (if it's going to) and not cause the goat to be lame. Lots of breeders give it in the loose skin under the elbow to hide the knot for the show ring. If it swells any then it causes lameness.

    Yeah, thats about where I give mine too. Behind the elbow enough the lump doesn't get in the way when they walk.
    Now I give Bose under the skin over the ribs.
