Best Answer

penicillin is not only for humans and is routinely used for many infections in many animals, including goats. Shipping fever complex is actually not an infection, rendering the penicillin as nothing more than a painful shot. I believe thiamine, exercise, and fresh water is the preferred medication for shipping fever complex. For more information, go to for profesional advice.

No human medicine

I would take caution in giving any animlas human medicine, unless prescribe by a vet.

IF it is shipping fever, and IF penicillin is the treatment, the VETERINARIAN will prescribe the dosage.

How many sheep can you pay zakat on?

Sheep has 5 taxable limits: * The 1st taxable limit is 40, and its Zakat is one sheep. And as long as the number of sheep does not reach 40, no Zakat is payable on them. * The 2nd taxable limit is 121, and its Zakat is 2 sheep * The 3rd taxable limit is 201, and its Zakat is 3 Sheep * The 4th taxable limit is 301, and its Zakat is 4 Sheep * The 5th taxable limit is 400 and above, and in this case calculation should be made in hundreds, and one sheep should be given as Zakat for each group of 100 sheep. And it is not necessary that Zakat should be given from the same sheep. It will be sufficient if some other sheep are given, or money equal to the price of the sheep is given as Zakat.
