    I have a tube of safe-guard dewormer paste and need to know the recommended dosage for a goat kid that's around 10wks old.

    It's the tube for dosing horses, so I'll need to load the goats dose into an oral syringe, but don't know how many cc or ml to use.

    quadruple the goats weight and then give that as a dosage

    you could give the kid 5ccs and ti wouldnt kill him -- you could give him teh whole syringe and it wouldnt hurt either. So really just a couple ccs will do it for the kiddo.

    There are too many things it could be. Hard to say.
