    I know I've told a few great people on here about my anemia troubles with my herd. I finally got my ducks in a row and did my first fecal on the boy with bottle jaw that we've been treating for anemia. I present a photo that shows he is overloaded with barber pole worms. :( One is zoomed out...

    What products and schedule do you use to prepare a pregnant doe for kidding and to avoid anemia after birth? We've recently had issues with our mothers becoming severely anemic after kidding. My husband has wormed on a schedule since we've had our goats. 2 Nubians that we got late last year had...

    As stated before, new to this site and new to owning goats. I posted yesterday that our goat (who Kidded nearly three weeks ago) is still having some occasional bleeding. While researching this, (waiting on a reply to this thread) I came across a few sites that talked about anemia, and the...

    First of all let me say that I have read several posts on here within the past few days and am thankful for the information provided! With that being said I am no expert or breeder/raiser of goats. My little family own a small hobby farm where we keep 4 goats as pets. Problem? I have a...

    Hi, My kid Nubian doe has been sick for about a month now. We suspect worms. I gave her Safeguard but it doesn't seem to be doing the job. What type of wormer should I give her? She doesn't seem to be scouring anymore but she is very anemic and weak and underweight. She has bottle jaw from the...
