I gave some of my goats Ivomec Plus injectable for the first time today. I normally gave Ivomec orally but I want to get the Plus and inject it to make sure they received the full benefit. Some of the goats acted like they were dying! They hollered and rolled around on the ground throwing their heads back. Is that normal??

Yes, it does. I've had goats act like they were going into anaphylactic shock after an injection. I refuse to use it unless I absolutely HAVE to!

I've seen many people recommend it. What are others experiences with it?

Oh I was so worried that my goats were going to go crazy but they were actually fine!
I gave it to them they kind of stood there and thought about and they were fine;)
