"hoping for the best"
I agonized over deciding if I wanted to start a CL vaccination program within my meat goat herd - after reviewing any/all information about the vaccine and getting as many opinions from seasoned breeders that do vaccinate, this is what I have experienced thus far: 1. The bottle is a cloudy white (same as the vaccine) so its VERY hard to see how much vaccine is left in the bottle when you are getting to the bottom. 2. I only got 19 doses out of a 20 dose vial. 3. It is VERY thick so for drawing up and injecting, you need to use a large needle (at least a 18g) for better ease. 4. Every goat I injected (SQ in the side of the neck as indicated by the directions) had some type of localized reaction - a few even had 'fist' sized nodules that have become very firm. 5. As the directions indicate, doses are 2 weeks apart, the first dose I gave, none of my goats seemed bothered by the vaccine (besides the firm swelling) but the second dose, I have 2 goats that seem lethargic as a secondary reaction. I guess in the end, these 'issues' are minor compared to actually having to deal with a CL infected herd - but I wanted to address the issues I had with this vaccine.
