    Bottle Jaw is usually caused by liver flukes. Ivomec will not get those. You need Ivomec plus, safeguard, or I think Valbazen.
    You can still give the safeguard even though you have given ivomec.
     
  2. yup, Ive got Ivomec Plus.

    It's both that can cause it. They both suck off the blood in the goat so they can both create bottle Jaw.

    i thought you weren't supposed to give them b12 until it started to clear up because the worms thrive on it? thats what our vet advised
