I completely disagree. The OP is not giving parasite meds, it’s just herbs. There’s no harm in giving them. Some brands sold work, some don’t. And the whole “slow” thing.... I’m not sure if you, toth Boer Goats, have used herbs, but if you haven’t - please don’t say this. I’ve seen herbs with essential oils in a treatment hourly protocol reduce a load from 8,000 to 600 in a day. Confirmed by a fecal test of course. I’ve seen chemical wormers take 4-7 days to get numbers that low. Natural deworming works. You must be diligent and do it correctly and use the right stuff and combinations... but gosh, it WORKS!! I have seen it save lives when chemicals stop working. I’ve only seen it fail a few times, usually when someone is using the wrong formula, dose, frequency, etc. That being said I’m not at all against chemical dewormers and anyone who wants to use them is welcome to... but, @wndngrvr don’t tell someone not to use herbal dewormers... they aren’t doing anything irresponsible or dangerous - it’s not your business what harmless supplements someone gives. Using herbs does not create blindness to parasite issues. Fecal tests should still be done, it’s not guaranteed to work and neither are chemicals. Your experience is yours, don’t take an abscess thread and target one thing someone said about using an herbal formula.
