Yeah, be careful with garlic. It actually is poisonous to goats in high doses. Make sure that you check the strength of the type that you're using.

I no longer do much of anything. The herd has been with me for way too many years. I don't save weakling kids or lambs anymore. 75% do survive and thrive on their own.
I don't have that option here - if I didn't intervene I'd have nothing left :confused: Goal is to cull the worst and use as much prevention as possible to minimize acute cases that need treatment. If I ever get off this property I expect I won't need to do as much, but parasites are still horrible on this side of the mountains.

Good to know about garlic. If I gave any it would be generic store bought which I'm guessing isn't the strongest, nor would it be a huge amount. Any idea how much it takes? I've never had any negative effects from low-moderate toxicity plants (always mixed with other stuff), only the strong stuff that can affect them with a few bites.
