    Just wormed one of our goats last week as her eyelids were looking pale. Noticed she was acting a bit sluggish this week, checked her FAMACHA and it’s even worse. So I’m assuming our wormer either doesn’t work anymore, or she’s grown ‘immune’ to its help. We live in Canada so I’m not sure what...

    So this later part of the year has been difficult for my goat herd. I have been struggling with pale eyes, and one doe almost died. The have two acres of grass to graze and I feed them Purina free choice goat mineral, and they have a cobalt block. Does anyone know what I'm missing. Should I be...

    Can anyone recommend a goat dewormer that isn't in the same family as Ivermectin and Cydectin?

    Well we appear to be dealing with a worm bloom right now. We've had sudden warm temps in the 60s (sorry all you people dealing with artic weather) and it seem like this has caused a sudden spike in parasites for me. To be honest I haven't checked their FAMACHAs in a little while because they...

She seemed fine this morning, although I have noticed some diarrhea. I don't know that it was hers. It has been incredibly rainy here, maybe that is a factor...

    Instead of hijacking Odieclark's thread (http://www.thegoatspot.net/forum/f197/2-more-185758/), I thought I would post some of my findings here. Please post yours! I saw many university extension offices offer testing. For Washington state, I found this helpful...

    Does anyone here do an all natural approach to parasites? I have been using a natural dewormer for a few days but my doe's eye lids are still pale. Also, if you use chemical dewormer, cane tell me one that I don't have to throw off the milk for? I've used ivermectin and had to throw away the...
