The mites that carry tapes aren't on your animal.
Interesting, ive never heard this ...I only know three kinds of mite, all three are on the goats...what kind are the ones in the hay?
So if I understand the previous threads you treat with a specific type of wormer (valbazen, panacure, zimectrin gold) to get rid of the internal worms and THEN also treat for the mites which are external?
Isn't that a lot of wormer for the goats? What do you do to help the goats deal with all these chemicals?
For tape you need a white wormer..you need to treat for three days in a row..for mites, you need an injectable wormer..in real bad cases some recommend the help of external dusting or sprays, usually the ivomec injected does the job, once a week for 3 weeks...Other worms are treated once unless its heavy loaded then some do a 3 times 10 days apart, other wise best to worm only as needed..fecals are our best defence against worms so we only worm against the parasite our goats carries..
If I have a goat with Barpole worm and mites..the mite treatment will take care of both....ect...I agree with your worry about chemical build up..this is why we always encourage worm only as needed and dont underdose ..dont feed medicated feed ect...
