    I have had a bit of bad luck with three of my alpine does. Two of them had coccidia twice which I thought was the issue for my other doe but turns out she has an overload of strongyle. I gave her fenbenzadole but I spoke with the vet and she told me to give her cydectin which I gave her today...

    Deworming has been a nightmare for me... I have a doe who is pooping really big clumps instead of the usual pellets and Im suspecting worms. I treated with ivermectin horse paste but that made it worse for 2 days and now she's back to the clumps, there is now another doe starting to have clumps...

    Does anyone make their own herbal wormers? If so what do you put in it and how much? What's the dosage? I live in Canada and I've found it difficult to find a herbal wormer that doesn't break the bank in either conversion rates or shipping. Any recommendations on that?
  8. Chickens & Poultry
    Can Valbazen be put in the gallon waterers? Can not find any straight answers. There is no way we would be able to catch all 70+ chickens. I’m afraid the bread method would cause some chickens to be overdosed and others to be under-dosed as they steal and fight for the bread.

    My five year old Mini Nubian May has suddenly stopped eating. This is the goat that has frequent problems with ketosis (I think - the vet diagnosed it the first time and after that whenever she showed the same symptoms I treated it like ketosis and she got better). I’ve upped her alfalfa and...
