does any one use Diatomaceous Earth for the goats for a wormer? If you do what do you think of it? I'm thinking of trying it out.

Thanks

It works really slow and isn't a good means, if the goat is already wormy. Not all eat it for one.

Never mix it in your loose salt and minerals. I had it that way and some of the goats, that didn't like the DE, didn't eat their loose minerals either, making them deficient. :(

Also, if you do use it, monitoring fecals help to make sure.
