General Goat Supplies


You need to have your supplies on hand BEFORE you need them.

The following are the supplies that I make sure I always have on hand at all times:


Medical Cabinet Supplies:
(Also see Birthing Kit)


Note: This list is to help eveyone, whether they choose to do things holistically and naturally, or they perfer a more traditional Western Medicine way.  I offer options for each livestyle choice when applicable.


  • Medical/Worming/Health Maintenance log- three ring binder, paper & pen or various computer files

  • Copies of the medicine dosage pages of this site.
  • Banamine - a prescription pain killer and/or Ow-Eze- an herbal sedative, pain reliever, anti-inflammatory

  • Oxytetracycline - an antibiotic and/or Immune Support Tincture - an herbal immunostmulant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral

  • Selenium/Vit E. Suppliment- such as Bo-Se shot or Gel (we use gel), helps with easier kidding and prevention of White Mussel Disease.  Also humen Vit E or horse Vitamin E powdered suppliment.

  • Albon , Sulmet and/or Immune Support Tincture or Herbal Worm Formula -for Coccidiosis prevention & treatment

  • Wormers - I use My (Molly's) Herbal Worm Formula

  • Probios or some other probiotic that contains specific, beneficial bacteria to keep the rumen working. Yogurt is a poor substitute since it does not contain all the proper bacteria. Use during and following antibiotic treatment or any time a goat seems "off". Also helps relieve stress.

  • Lavender essential oil - used to treat stress and depression. Lavender has a calming and mood lifting effect.

  • Tea Tree Oil

  • Peanut oil - for treatment of bloat

  • Vit. B fortified complex - helps increase appetite

  • Immune Support Herbal Tincture, aka "IST" - I use this at the first sign of almost all illnesses.

  • Mastitis/ Udder Massage Salve

  • California Mastitis Test (if milking)

  • Chewable Children's Multi-Vitamins-- a tasty way to administer vitamins

  • Calcium Gluconate- for treatment of Milk Fever

  • Syringes: (if you give shots).  I haven't given a shot since 2002, but I still like to keep a few small syringes on hand for orally dosing tinctures such as Ow-eze and IST:

    • 3 ml w/ needles- 22 Gauge x 3/4"

    • 6 ml

    • 1 ml insulin syringes w/ needles- 28 gauge x 1/2 " (for giving shots to young kids)

  • Needles (if you give shots).- for use on the larger syringes

    • 22 Gauge x 3/4"

  • Jar containing cotton balls and rubbing alcohol- (if you give shots) for swabbing tops of medicine bottles before preparing injections.

  • Feeding Syringe with metal tip : 30 ml - for dosing & drenching medications and powdered herbs

  • Weak Kid syringe
