It's the 1% cattle ivermectin you are looking for. I haven't noticed any difference in brands.
Horse wormer is a yes yes at at 3 times the dose.
I use a pelleted dewormer made for goats, but at times i use Zimecterin which is a horse dewormer.
Okay so how is Zimectrin Gold?? It has 1.55% ivermectin and 7.75% praziquantel.
I wouldn't use the pellet wormer. I lost one of my goats to worms because of pellet wormer. It's just to hard to dose. Stick with paste is ivomec plus subQ injectable. Also do a search on ivomec plus? It's a great read and covers a lot of different wormers.

The ivermectin gets the usual intestinal worms and the praziquantel gets the tape worms. You probably want to get a fecal done first so you know what, if anything, you are dealing with.
