What to have on hand for your First Goat Kidding

I was offered a Grab n Go Goat kidding kit when I purchased my First Doe which was in milk & Doeling. The kit was provided by 4 Acres Farm & Country Magic Nigerian Goats. I am working on creating my own kidding kit to offer to those who would like when purchasing two or more Does for there own herd.


What were a few things included and what did I add?

These are the basics I would suggest having on hand as I did not have the smoothest first kidding and I am thankful I was prepared.

Bulb Syringe

Iodine dip

Navel Clip

Note I am not a trained professional, If you are in Canada you will have to obtain a relationship with a veterinarian as for some of these medications and supplements as you will have to obtain from your veterinarian. Before Kidding I suggest you establish a relationship with a veterinarian.
