    I bought Ivermectin, and it is apple flavored. It says for horses only, but it was the only ivermectin at the TSC...

    Did I get the right one?

    yep, 1.87% ivermectin. Give 3X the weight listed on the tube. So if the goat is 50lbs give enough for 150 lbs.

    Yes, that's the stuff...I have used it on my goats before and I do have to say that they were not very impressed with the "apple flavor"...LoL...so beware because they might try to spit it out.

    Some of mine liked it and some of them were really grossed out! LOL

    Ok, now. Do I give them another dose in 10 days? Is that correct?

    Thx Stacey. I am so glad I have you guys for support. It is reassuring to be able to come in and ask to make sure I "know" what I am doing! LOL

    When i give this wormer I mix it with about 10cc of drench and use a drenching gun ... they take it very well and no 'spit up" on me.

    And yes, Lawanda did her homework...it is safe for preggy girls.
