I dewormed my two girls that had FEC's over 2000 on 9/3 and 9/6..... they had a repeat on 9/14 and 9/15 respectively. Dewormer was cattle injectable ivomec at 1cc/40lbs orally, and safeguard 1cc/10 lbs ... safeguard for 3 days, ivomec just on the first day. It's now 10 and 9 days after the second deworming and the FEC is still really high... one dropped to 1500 but the other is at 4500. The one with the 4500 score has a really good FAMACHA (2), and the one with the 1500 FEC has a score of about 3.... maybe a 4. Obviously it doesn't seem like my combination dewormer is very effective... and I know that safeguard is basically worthless, but that combination HAS worked for me for two years now. My vet swears by the cattle pour on given orally at 3ml/50 lbs, but I know that it's pretty frowned upon by us goat parents. My whole plan was to deworm this round, get a baseline FEC and then start the @NigerianDwarfOwner707 essential oil and garlic regimen going forward, so I was pretty disappointed by the fecal scores. I did go ahead and give a really high dose of garlic cloves to each girl (3-4 each) and the essential oil combination (clove,lemongrass,wild orange and oregano in olive oil) to each of them this evening... and some red cell/b compex to the girl looking a bit anemic. I plan to follow that for the next two days and take another fecal this weekend to make sure it's still looking pretty bleak, before doing any chemical dewormers. Assuming I don't see any improvement... What are your favorite combination dewormers (chemical)? Any suggestions in my situation? I'd love for the natural path to make a difference quickly because I JUST finished with my milk discard period! I hate to even consider doing it again for another 14 days.
