    I have 2 sets of Nigerian Dwarf twins, 6 weeks old. I have Toltrazuril 5% ordered, and should be here in the next few days. I missed giving it to the babies at 3 weeks, so should I just go with 6, 9, and 12 weeks, or add another dose at 16 weeks? 1 ml per 5 lbs. At the same time, I plan on...

    Hey! Fairly new goat owner here! I don't normally have too much trouble with worms, but several of my goats have lost condition recently. I did a check of their mucous membranes, and they were looking a little pale. I went ahead and wormed with Ivermectin, since that's what I had on hand, but...

    we should know the answer to this, but have a little different circumstance than in the past. We had our does in separate stalls in the barn based on how many kids each had in late June and July, so 1 kid with one doe, 2 with does, and one doe with triplets, so we could watch body condition...

    I live in a humid part of the country that is heavily infested with parasites including the dreaded barber's pole worm, and have successfully used herbal wormers for over 12 years, and when I say successfully I mean I have never needed to resort to conventional wormers, not even in emergencies...

    Newbie question: I have read that only Safeguard is safe for pregnant does for worming... and I've also read that Ivomec is safe for pregnant does as well (used as the injectable, but orally??) Can someone please let me know if the Ivomec is in fact safe for pregnant does? I thought I read that...

    Well it seems like my endless flow of questions has ebbed a bit:oops:. So Exploring my options for worming. I have done a lot of research on DE and it seems like there are quite a few opinions on whether or not DE works as a de-wormer. Some people who use it say it does work, some (like the...

    I purchased two kids 3 weeks ago at 6 weeks of age for pets. They are both taking a bottle well but I'm worried one looks a little skinny. Current rations are 12 oz milk/ 3x daily, 1 cup grain daily and free choice hay and pasture. They graze and drink water on their own. Should I be...

    Lost my sweet boar "Peaches" last night. Thinking it was a parasite that spectra guard did not cover. I just wormed her and my male two weeks ago but am afraid the male goat might get the same parasite. Does anyone know if I can give him something else this soon. Not sure of his age but he is...
  10. Beginners Goat Raising
    We have a month old baby that I am worried about. She is 100% fine at this point, but her or her mom have had no wormer at all. We wormed the rest of the heard and they are clear, but the vet doesn't want to worm them without a fecal. They are never in a stall so it seems impossible to catch any...
