Basic vaccination programs for goats include vaccinations against Clostriduim perfringens types C and D and Clostridium tetani.[1'3'6] There are multivalent clostridial vaccines, including those against black leg, malignant edema, and bacillary hemoglobinuria, used in goats. These are unusual diseases in goats, and vaccination to prevent them is usually not economically justified. Vaccines against contagious ecthyma, caseous lymphadenitis, and Chlamydia are incorporated in the vaccination program if there is a need in that particular herd.[1-3,5]
