I lost my momma pygmy nanny last week due to worms or bloat I'm assuming. She had twin babies and they have taken to feed and grazing perfectly but what kind of wormer should I give? I noticed their bellies look a little bigger than the other babies could that be from not getting milk and transitioning to feed and pasture only? They act fine and eat great.

I agree with Karen. Yes, the belly could be from pasture and feed only, but it could also be from worms or cocci. How much feed are they eating, and what kind are you feeding?

Medicated pellets is what I feed and they aren't getting that much maybe 1/2 cup but they graze all day with the others I have 11 others.

The medicated part of the pellets won't help them at all if they aren't getting the proper dosage, i.e. eating enough pellets to get the proper dosage.

I would have a fecal done but I wouldn't be surprised if they have coccidia along with other worms.
