What are the Medications and treatment products you need to have on hand at all times for your goats?
Fortified Vitamin B Complex

ProBios Gel (OR Goat's Preferred Probiotic gel, OR Jump Start Microbial gel - they are all basically the same thing)

Pritchard nipples 2 or more. They are red with a yellow twist cap - fit on just about any coke bottle)

Blu-Coat (wound dressing)
OR Alu-Shield

Syringes & Needles:
Oral Syringes
6ml syringes
3 ml syringes
1 inch 18 gauge needles 
1 inch 16 gauge needles

Biomycin (does not sting like LA 200) (Antibiotic - if they don't carry it, LA 200 is the same thing, except it stings when given)

C& D Antitoxin no, that's not huge accidentally. If you don't buy anything else, buy this. (NOT the vaccine, the ANTITOXIN, it will be in a 250 ml bottle ... when you need it, you'll need it immediately, not in an hour or a day)

Coppasure Copper Bolus - for supplementation of copper
Specto-guard Scour Check (for pigs) - for ecoli

Vit A, D, & E injectable (if they carry it, I usually have to order it from

Valbazen wormer

Prescription Medications
- Must Be Approved By A Veterinarian

These medications are available through your veterinarian:

Bo-Se - Selenium supplement -- to prevent selenium deficiency and white muscle disease in kids

Thiamine (B1) - for goat Polio or Listerosis
Vitamin B12 - for anemia

Dexamethasone - for inflammation after injury or infection as well as to treat aspiration of birth fluids in kids

Nuflor - Super D Duper Antibiotic - for pneumonia and severe illness – this drug is not to be used lightly as it kills ALL bacteria, good and bad, and can severely depress the immune system of a goat with a small infection that could easily have been treated with Biomycin. ALWAYS USE BIOMYCIN or LA200 FIRST. Nuflor is off-label for goats, but the only antibiotic that will treat some illness quickly and efficiently. BURNS like the fires of hell when going in (this drug will *very rarely* be used, and is quite exensive, so if your vet is willing to dispense this drug when needed, you can forgo purchasing)
Some Online companies I use: ValleyVet; Jeffers;
Some of the Non Prescription items may be found at your Farm Supply Store or Feed Store
