    Only dose corid correctly - low dosing leads to ineffective results. Corid is for coccidia, not barber pole worms. Lots of people on here have used Valbazen 1 cc per 10#. Do NOT use this if you have pregnant does. Go to search at the top of the page, there are a lot of great discussions on here as to what people have used effectively. If she is anemic, you will have to treat for that as well. I hope this helps and that your goats get better soon.

    Did the fecal show coccidia? If not then you should not have given that. But now that you have started you have to finish the treatment or run the risk of makin it resistant. You only ever treat for the things you need treat for not other things... this is how grubbie become resistant and meds stop workin.

    Did the fecal show coccidia? Just doing one dose and not a full course along with not really having coccidia will just build resistance.

    No it didn’t show coccidia that’s what an old post on here said when I looked it up to use . And I know barber pole can be bad so I wanted to get stated on it. They have plenty of energy and eyes look good but the fecal was heavy with barber pole. So I guess I get valbazen now?

    The problem is that corid doesn't do anything for barberpole. So you didn't start a treatment for barberpole. Valbazen or Ivomec or Cydectin treats barberpole.

    Wanted to check I was talking to someone at the feed store and they said I should be giving cydectin in between valbazen treatments

    How bad is the barberpole? What is the count? I wouldn't be doing that unless you had an extremely bad case. I'd want to save the Cydectin for when Valbazen doesn't work.

    I am going through a harrowing deworming experience right now that I am afraid is going to render my does useless to me.

    I am sharing this so you will take warning to research any meds you give your goats that you milk. A lot of the medications are used frequently 'off label', which means they are used for animals not listed on the label.

    My local vet prescribed Dectomax (Doramectin) injections for my milkers for worms. He only sourced one Edu. recommendation, that didn't even list goats in his research. This drug was made for cattle and swine, and it is the vets decision to use it in other ways.

    The drug is made by Pfizer, and i spoke to the correct division in this case, and they told me they don't have ANY data or research program for goats using this med. I did some heavy research and found several articles that clearly stated that this injection should not be used on dairy cattle, or any dairy animals that produce milk for human consumption. So, what does that tell me? My goats are ruined!

    Always at least, consult FARAD: Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank
