I'm trying to put a plan in place for if/when I need to deworm our pregnant does. Normally... if they need deworming I use Quest or Quest Plus. I've been doing my own fecals for a while now, but assessing just this year I see we tend to deal with Ostertagia (per a few people that helped me ID the egg), and we have had 2 other types of Trichostrongyle, but I see them more randomly, although one I want to say might be more common in cooler months? Time will tell. Valbazen given 3 days in a row at 1cc per 10lbs is very effective and cleans them out really well, in fact most times I don't even have to retreat, I just keep an eye on fecal. Well... Valbazen is NOT safe for pregnant does. So I am trying to figure out a plan of action to try if/when the pregnant girls need to be dewormed. Years past I would use Moxidectin (Quest/Quest Plus) or Ivermectin. But after using either and doing follow up fecals this summer I question just how effective they are vs. the Valbazen regiment I mentioned above. I wish now I'd kept complete records written down as far as fecal results per animal - so recently I started adding their results to their records. So... deciding on a dewormer.... Someone mentioned to me about using Pyrantel Pamoate, I have absolutely no experience with that dewormer, safe? or how effective? They mentioned they used it and used the kind labeled for humans. Otherwise I've been debating getting Safeguard or Panacur and when time comes, use it for 3 days in a row, and day 1 also use Quest/Quest Plus or Ivermectin/Equimax. BUT... I question the Quest Plus and Equimax because it also has Praziquantel in it and that means they'd technically be getting 3 dewormers. If I do the dual deworming then I wonder what is most cost effective? Liquid or paste? I put together a deworming chart earlier this year and for dewormers I don't use I got dosages from reliable sources, but I have always questioned the Safeguard horse paste dosage (9x a goat's weight 3 days in a row? That would be a tube a day!). Valbazen has been the only liquid dewormer I've used, although way back in 2010 we did use the goat Safeguard per label directions and that was a total waste of $$. So... I'd love thoughts on this. Not only for myself, but I'll be mentioning it to some locals as well who will be in the same boat as me if we need to deworm and wanting a good plan in place. ALSO - super curious if anyone has ever used ANTHELCIDE? I seen it on the shelf yesterday and have wondered about it. I want to say someone told me years ago it's similar to Ivermectin and not very effective?
