Goat first aid

Two products to always have on hand along with your other animal first aid care…

We have had goats for 3 years now and in that time only 2 accidents have happened one was two of my females must have got into it good because one with horns, stabed the other one with out horns and punctured the top of her head so i separated them and applied vetracil and within a few days it was heeled up nicely. Last night was the second accident our new big boer goat fancy decided she was going to jump ontop of the goat shelters they are every bit of 4-5 foot high but she did it and in the process cut her leg on the tin roofing, so now we realized that we had better cover the edges so no one else gets hurt. 

Luckily it was only a flesh wound and only bled for just a minute, once again just sprayed vetracil on it to make sure no infection happens. For goat first aid i recommend vetracil for everything! Between listerine (the brown) and vetracil you dont really need much else unless its something really bad then as always call the vet! But for mites,ticks,fleas,ring worm listernine works like a charm just spray it on and done!! Works well also if they have any kind of hoof infection i spray the vetracil for two days then the listerine until it clears up and done! And its way cheaper then the harsh chemicals. Happy farming!!
