    Hi
    I have a doe who routinely gets pneumonia. This doe broke her leg at 2 weeks of age & spent time in the house so my kids think she gets it on purpose to come in the house again. She's always my least thrifty looking goat & is the one who seems to need zinc every few months or she looks scraggly. I was wondering if pasteurella vaccine might keep her from getting pneumonia? Fecals are fine on her by the way

    Pam, why don't you call and visit with Dr. Nat Adams in Denton, about this doe. She is a goat vet - has raised Alpines for decades. You can usually catch her early in the mornings just before 8:00. After that, she may have to call you back, when all her patients are gone.

    and then could you come back and share what you learned, I am curious as she sounds similar to a doe that we have here.

    and sure the vaccine will help to a certain extent. would also be using BoSe to build up her immune system and Vit C and garlic
