    My doe Pippi had some issues with staph this past year. Nothing too major, and I think it was caused by her immune system getting overtaxed. I have addressed what I believe to be the underlying issues there, so hopefully, her next freshening will be better. But I thought it might be wise to give...

    Hello everyone! I need to deworm my children but math isn’t my strong suit... I have a mixed herd of saanens, myotonics, boers, and Nubians. And they’re all in desperate need of a deworming, however the only dewormer I could get at my current location is LevaMed (levamisole hydrochloride)...

    Hi Everyone - need some advice. I have 5 bucklings ranging from 3-5 months. We had them all banded last month by our vet. The bands are still on though all of their testicles appear to be flattened and hard. The issue is that on all but 1 - they have developed infections around the band. We...

    I am still new to goats (about a year and a half) and one of my does almost tore her hoof off and I have been wrapping it and cleaning it with diluted iodine and triple antibiotic ointment. I haven’t started the antibiotics though I’m not sure how much to give and how long and where to...

    What would the safeguard dose be for an 18 pound goat with tapeworms? I think it would be a little over .4 but I am just double checking. I will probably end up using Valbazen, but I will see if I can clear it up naturally. He has been dewormed with EO's, and I have been giving him 2 cloves...

    So, I know that you are supposed use bigger doses of oral wormers on goats. I usually use 4xs the horse dose. But do you do the same with Ivermectin Pour-On? Or do I give it as the label directs? Thanks, in advance!!!!!

    I am planning on worming (preventative) my goats with a recipe I found that has great reviews. It is: 8 oz of coconut oil Rosemary essential oil Oregano essential oil However, I have not been able to find a dosage for it anywhere. Any suggestions on how much I should give my goats? I have...

    After almost a year of procrastinating, I am finally dehorning my adult goat, Comet. He has caused injuries to my dogs, lambs, and other goats and occasionally turns his horns to me (playfully, but it doesn't feel very good). So I have all of the equipment to do the banding method and I've done...

    So my two Nigerian Dwarfs bucklings have not been given any CD/T shots and I will be banding them today. I read that they need to be given Tetanus anti-toxin to prevent Tetanus, but I have no idea on the dosage since they are smaller goats and only 11 weeks old. I also read that the anti-toxin...

    I bought some red cell yesterday to give my mytonic goat who is anemic. My vet usually uses Hemax but said I could use the red cell but she wasn't as familiar with it and wasn't sure of the dosage. She said also give it to her every other day due to the copper in red cell. Does anyone know the...

    My most obvious issue was/is my white wether turning a reddish color, and my golden blonde (also newly wethered) 5 month old buckling turning white. My doe, who's usually the healthiest goat I've ever seen, (a glossy Boer red color) suddenly looked dry with white splotches of hair springing up...

    Okay, Thumper has weird poos so I took him to the vet. She sent some out and found out that he doesn't have worms, but he has coccidiosis(?). I got Corid from the feed store. I can't put it in his water because of our dog. She told me the ratio to break it down so we can give it to him orally...

    I have been researching and discovered I should give my goats the injectable Ivomec (ivermectin) 1% solution orally, not inject it as I have in the past. Could you please discuss what the differences are in the way it is administered, if there is a difference in the dose when administered...
