    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...

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

    Hey folks - I've been keeping goats for the last three years, and have been doing rotational grazing that entire time. Basically, moving their pen once a week and not returning to the same spot for at least six weeks. This is the method I learned from my farming mentor, who's been doing...

    This morning I found one of my doelings dead. Her eyelids, super pale, no color, whatsoever. I dewormed my herd because they all seemed to have slightly low FAMANCHA score. I dewormed with cydectin, safeguard, and I did a 5 day Corid treatment. They all seem to be doing well, but I still...

    I have a few goats that I have dewormed with a combination of Safeguard (fenbendazole) and Cydectin (moxidectin) yesterday. Neither of those dewormers treat coccidia so I was wondering if I should go ahead and treat for it just in case. I have a bottle of the Corid 9.6% Oral Solution that I...

    Hey, I was wondering if it was safe and effective to use Cydectin (sheep oral drench) for 9 week old kids? I have the safeguard liquid too if that would be a better option. Let me know your opinions.

    Hello all! Now as spring is approaching, everyone is shedding out their winter coats. I noticed however, my oldest and newest doe seems to have lots of dandruff? I just read about offering zinc tablets, and with the current COVID virus going around, we are making plans to do some much needed...

    I have 2 bucklings in a 15 x 20 dirt lot in the barn, and let them out to graze regularly. One day, I noticed Archie was off, so i looked at FAMACHA (which was good), gave some b complex, and took temp. I wasn't that worried about it. The next morning, I went out, he had watery scours, and was...

    Hi everyone. I have wormed by mouth in the past since my goats react very badly to being injected (they act like they’re having a panic attack) But which way is the best and most effective, especially for lungworms? If it’s injected, where is the best place to do it? Sorry for ignorance.

    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...

    I heard that people can get worms from consuming raw goat's milk. True? False? I keep finding conflicting answers from googling. We have a FF and she's doing awesome with milking, but we want to make cheese. However, I missed the window to worm her safely before she gave birth, and I've heard...

    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...

    10 week Buckling came down with Cocci and barber pole worms. Got meds from the vet and have been giving jump start. What else, if anything should I be giving to help. They said that we will have to quarantine then take them out of the pen and let everything die for 10 days before putting them...

    Hi! We just got our first goats a week ago. One of them is a 1 year old doeling who the prior owner claims is not pregnant. The prior owner has been very upfront and honest, admitting likely pregnancy with one of the other does so I don't believe she is lying. However, this doe's belly is...

    Hi! We brought home our first goats yesterday. We have three ND does. Two of their coats look rough. It could be genetics, as these two are mother/daughter, but they do seem to be scratching a lot. I do not see any lice, but they do have some dandruff. I am wondering if they have mites and...

    Well it's been a rough couple of days... A few days ago I went out to feed the goats and one of my mamas was moving sluggish and had a puffy face (everyone kidded about a month ago- Christmas babies!). Figuring this was barber pole worm, I wormed her with valbazen. Later that night I came out...
