    No, I don’t hate anybody. I have not received what I have ordered from them yet. What does HerBiotic do?

    Had to leave early this morning so I fed earlier. I gave the cayenne mix but didn’t do temps. They all where piping pellets like a bomber drops bombs. It was dark but I could hear them. They all seemed in good spirits. It is ok to give the digestzen pjust before feeding? I hope so because o can’t do it during the day , only in early morning or evening. I might could on the week ends.

    DigestZen is fine any time of day.

    The HerBiotic is an herbal antibiotic, and in case there is something bacterial causing this, it would help.

    Ok, let me get this other in and I’ll order some. This evening her temp was 103.1 f. I gave the 2 cloves (large) of garlic with a wipe of peanut butter. Top dressed the alfalfa pellets with a little probiotics. I have put her buddies with her and she eats better. I did a fecal on her this evening and She still have a heavy worm load of BP. What was the cayenne pepper mix for? Worms or stomach? I just gave her a drop of digestzen with 2 ml olive oil mixed. Also on another note I have been giving the cayenne pepper mix to all four. This evening after I gave the mix and just before I left one of her buddies (Aja) started long blates like she was in pain. Just walking around in the pen and stop and blate out. I went back to check her and she went over and started eating alfalfa pellets. Then she would walk off and start blating again. Finally she stopped and I left pasture. Do you think the cayenne mix may not be good for her?

    You can stop it, it may just be strong or a little spicy. Some goats register the spice and some don’t.

    As for the wormload, there’s not much we can do about it until we get the fir Meadow herbs and remaining essential oils, but the mix you are giving does help.

    According to my calculations she tallied 2000 on the worm load.

    I haven’t looked in a week. I’ll check her in the morning . In fact I’ll check her and all her buddies. I’ll try to get fecal on her buddies also.

    Do you think it would be alright to feed the two small packs of pumpkin seed that my wife bought? They are roasted and salted. I could mix them in their alfalfa. If not to my sick gal maybe the rest of the herd?

    They are not going to have the benefits, they’ll just be treats!

    Too much can cause loose poop. Good for down goats.

    I got my fir Meadows GI smoother and DWA wormer in. I can see I need 1/2 teaspoon it says for a 70 to 100 pound goat of each one. How do you give this stuff, just mix with water and drench? If so can I mix a teaspoon and a half and give 1 part morning and 1 part at lunch and last part at evening feed? How do you store this? Can it be refrigerated or just put in a canister leaving in the bag it came in. The essential oil I received may or may not work. It says for aromatherapy or topical. Can I use it anyway? I know this is a lot of questions but I’m off tomorrow so I’d like to get started this evening.

    Herbs can be left in the bags they came in.

    She’s treatment dosing, so give a double dose every 3 hours for a day. Use tomorrow (when you aren’t working). Then give a triple dose twice daily (if you aren’t able to give three doses in a day). Do that for 5 days. Then give a double dose 2x a day for 5 more days.

    Bags of the herbs don’t get refrigerated.

    Top it over her feed, mix with some water, mix with a little bit of applesauce, or pumpkin purée for her to lick up, mix with molasses and slippery elm and make into a dosage ball. You can mix with peanut butter, and you can make that into a dosage ball as well.

    Can’t use essential oil unless it’s DoTerra food grade.

    I gave her both the wormer and the soother in a small amount of yogurt. She loves yogurt.

    I have been having trouble getting on the site. Started last night. Sometimes it would time out and post a error message as site not available. It wouldn’t let me post.
