    For some reason my mind and notes are blank on this! I have always given a tetanus antitoxin when disbudding, castrating (banding) the kids.

    I keep finding contradictory information.

    When castrating, disbudding, or in our case banding tails on lambs, how much tetanus anti-toxin do I give?

    I have seen 150-200 units (bottle reads contents of 1500 units) but I don't know how to measure that into cc.

    Sue Reith said to give 1/2cc to newborns.

    Hoeggers says 2 1/2 cc for disbudding, catrating.

    So, what dose DO I give?
