"Here are some basic ingredients that belong in a caprine first aid kit. All of the items below are necessary if you keep a herd of goats. If you only have one or two goats, at least keep those items that are marked with an asterisk. Of course, there are many other things you can keep in your kit, but this is a good start. Ask your veterinarian for his or her advice for your situation. He or she may also be able to supply items that you can't find at your local farm supply store or in a farm veterinary supply catalog.
