    Good day all!:D

    I am getting ready to start my kids on Molly's herbal wormer, but wonder if I should change the dose since ND's are much smaller than standard goats. Does anyone else use it for their ND's and do they follow the dosage she suggested for goats, or do you motify it?:confused:

    I tried searching for info, but did not find any, but then again I could have put in the wrong key words!

    Thanks AGAIN for all the help!

    I had to use full sized dosage for Molly's on my Nigerians. I actually much prefer Fir Meadow's -- Kat has a degree and really knows her stuff. I have seen a huge difference when I switched my herd from Molly's to Fir Meadows :) I used Molly's for two years, and it just didn't quite cut it, I had to give very often at higher dosages than I was comfortable with.

    Thanks! :cool:

    I just found a thread about it that said Molly says full dose for adults, 2/3 for kids! Of course I find it AFTER I made this post! :eek:

    I use the standard dosage on my full grown ND doe, and a little less for our two ND kids.

    But I've never heard of Fir Meadow.. I'm going to have to look that up. My mom likes giving natural stuff but I'm worried it may not work. :p

    Ps. Didn't mean to sound like I was bashing Molly. Her website was my goat Bible starting out, haha! But even she says on her website, that she sometimes has to use a chemical wormer for her goats, so I made the switch and have been happy. :)
