Hey everyone!

I am new to the business and will be getting my first set of bred does early next year.

My question is: What are some must have medications that all farmers have on hand all the time?

If you were to put together me a medical tackle box. What would you put in it?

Above is a link to a earlier thread that I found by using the search feature.

I would go through our whole drug inventory and list everything for you that we have except I am not home to look at it.

Besides getting all the various drugs it is important to have some understanding how to properly use them. Dosages, drug reactions, humane concerns when using drugs, and such.

Here is a link to a helpful website also.

Keep this link handy and use it to research things out.

One thing we use more than anything else... Ivomec Plus injectable.

Something I just purchased, but think it'll be really useful to keep on hand due to how common pneumonia can be at times...and how quickly it can kill a deer. Draxxin. Not cheap...but it'll usually cure pneumonia right up in one shot.

I'm not gonna list off everything we have and use since you've got plenty of info above...but I do feel those both included specific mentioning.

I think that taking such a drug does not mean being impotent. Just if today you want to impress a new lady, and not give her rest for three to four hours, then this is your option. And do not get involved in this business all the time. Only if you feel tired or are going to spend a stormy night. But in no case do not take such drugs more than once a day, all the same, these drugs remain the same effect.
