    That's how I always roll. Valbazen in my males and non pregnant females, ivomec in pregnant females and young kids.

    Neither are okay for pregnant goats, from what I've read and heard. I'm not positive on the Ivomec+ but I know for sure that Valbazen is a no-no. :) I have used the regular Ivomec on pregnant does before with no problems.

    So what would you suggest for the pregger does? Safeguard?

    Yeah, Safeguard (if it is still effective in your area) or the regular Ivomec. We typically do not deworm when they are pregnant, just because of no need. We do deworm two days after kidding.

    So if you worm 2 days after - is that when you use the Valbezen?

    I have used Valbazen or Ivomec two days after. But most recently have used an herbal wormer. The one from Fir Meadow.

    Got a routine fecal back from the vet for Leona - I've only been giving her the herbal wormer from Fir Meadow ---- not a single bug!!! :D So, I can tell you for sure that it works!

    DONT GIVE VALBAZEN TO PREGNANT DOES!

    I learnt this the hard way.

    I treated 70 odd pregnant does on my vet's advice before I knew not to ...

    probably 1/3 of them aborted, premmie or stillborn or both.

    :(

    Now I know better.
