    At what age do you worm kids for the first time with Ivermectin paste?

    Also, today we gave the kids their first CD/T vaccine. On the last kid, she jumped and at least 1cc ended up on her fur (out of the 2cc's). Would you recommend re-doing it with the full 2cc's, giving her just 1 cc, or doing nothing. It was my fault - I didn't have her braced well enough.

    I would definately redo the 1 cc CD/T vaccination again.

    I use the Ivermectin injectable as an oral dewormer for my kids at 8 weeks of age. I've never used the paste the though so I'm not sure of the difference.

    If they need it you can worm as early as 4 weeks.

    You can give her 1more cc its no big deal- it happens to me too.

    Thanks, we'll go ahead and do that. I hope it wasn't more than 1cc that spilled out. Next up is our vet tech friend helping us draw blood from the adults for testing. Hopefully that will go well!
