    Im making an order from Jeffers and I want to get coccidiosis medication and some type of dewormer, I was thinking either Corid or Di-methox powders and Ivomec Plus or? I am getting Valbazen for sure however. Ill be using the Cocci meds as a preventative for the kids born and the dewormer now as some of my goats badly need it so Im getting she shipping rushed.

    What Ive got for goats:

    2 milking does - we dont consume the milk but we are freezing it for kidding season.
    8 does bred or possibly bred (not past 21 days yet)
    3 breeding bucks
    All weighing from 40 lbs to 200 lbs

    Thanks!

    I use DiMethox for prevention as well as treatment. I have the powder as well as the solution.
    I have only ever used paste wormers so I can't really recommend a wormer...I do know that with Valbazen and Ivomec plus there is a warning against their use on pregnant does.

    Laura, DiMethox powder is the same as the liquid, just needs to be mixed in appropriate measure with water.

    Yeah I noticed the warnings, I plan to use Ivermectin horse paste on the bred does though. It seems Di-Methox is easyer to figure the dosage for buy you get more for your money with the Corid so Im waitng for a few more posts.

    Thanks!

    Laura, Di Methox is a cocci preventative or treatment.

    I usually get Di Methox, Corid, and I think there's another one I have stashed away in my tack shed. I just like to have those on hand. I would get at least two different kinds that way if one doesn't work then you already have a back up on hand.

    Ivermec Injectable for Cattle/Swine is what I now use quite often, I don't inject it though, just drench it. It seems to work awesome for my herd. It's best to switch between a couple different wormers though. If you can get both that would be awesome.

    I love Jeffers.

    Im also decided to get my disbudding iron, I just realized I could have kids at any time. Should I get the Rhinehart 30x or 50x? also white tips may I need? Ive got Nigerian and full sized kids coming.
