Personally If its unopen...I would take it back. I wouldn't give to any goat. It is expensive. In the end rhe decision is yours. Many use it with no immediate issues.

If you can return it do. If not, yes use it ...1cc per 10 lbs.
Just when you're out switch. Are you positive your goats only 50lbs? Did you weigh her on a scale? Looks can be deceiving on goats.
The reason I ask is 12ccs sound like a lot for a 50lb goat... @happybleats

B complex dose is 4-6 cc per 100 pounds. 12 cc does sound like alot for 50 pound goat. Although she will pee out what she doesn't need its a bit of a waste.
If its for polio treatment..you give as much as needed to receive 500 mg of Thiamine.

Your dosing listed for Ivermectin, Safeguard, and Panacur seem very very low. For future:

For liquid goat Safeguard, at least 7mL per 100 lbs must be used. If you were using the Safeguard horse past, the dose is different. Panacur is the same drug (Fenbendazole) so no need to use both.

For Ivermectin, using the injectable 1%, give ORALLY, at 1mL per 40lbs. If it has been used for several years in the herd, use at 1mL per 30lbs.

When poor FAMACHA, combined with weight loss, rough coat, or loose stool is observed, use Safeguard and Ivermectin on the SAME day, repeat 10-14 days later at same dosages above.

If fecal analysis still demonstrates high worm load, then switch to the stronger dewormers.

If much of your pasture land is wet, and you are having a hard time maintaining herd health and weights even with the grains you listed, consider Liver Flukes as one possible component of the problem.

Update her temp was 99 this am I've had her in the house and is now on a heat pad. I've been holding her up but she will not put any weight on her back legs.I will continue trying and doing physical therapy with her. She is eating some grass won't touch the hay.... and drinking water on her own. Her rumen is still working I'm continuing the vit b red cell and nutri drench probios. Thanks to everyone that has given me info this far! It helps just knowing that we have this community I am getting fecals done on whole herd this weekend.
