Vaccination mistake
« on: August 03, 2020, 11:01:45 am »
hi guys,

I was vaccinating my goats today with lambivac and I should have brought the marking spray but forgot. I have two goats that look almost identical. I vaccinated one and now can't remember which one that was. One of them has a lump but I could have sworn it was the other one I vaccinated. They had another injection in the same place four weeks ago so I worried its from that. The other one has no lump at all though.

What should I do?! Should I vaccinate the one without a lump? Would it be dangerous if they end up having a double dose.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think it would kill them, however best to ask your vet over the phone, s/he will know and there shouldn't be any charge for advice over the phone.
