My doe had her doeling on Friday night and everything is going well. The day before she kidded, her coat got really scraggly -overnight it seemed. She weighs 65# and I gave her 3cc of safeguard. I treated the herd with baycox, except for the pregnant does, and saw an immediate change in everyone. Would it be safe to treat her while she is nursing? Also, should I be increasing her grain at this point? She get 1cupvpoulin sweet and 1/3 cup alfalfa pellets. Thanks

She can have any wormer while nursing you betcha. As for the feed amounts, she could probably use a bit more but increase it gradually over a few weeks time.
The safeguard is not a one time thing. Inotherwords, she is going to need another dose or two but Ive never used it so someone else will chime in about that.

She was given Ivomec injectable about a week ago, thought possible lungworm from cough. Also ivomec orally the end of may for strongyles in fecal tested. I was told to worm her after kidding. What would be a better wormer & dosage? Will baycox affect the baby if I treat her with it?

You need to get him up and nursing. I would also give him a BoSe shot. Make sure he is breathing ok.

I'm assuming you would have to get it from your vet. If the little guy is significantly smaller than his sister, he probably didn't have a good attachment to the placenta and didn't get the proper nutrients. His lungs and other organs may not be properly developed. He also may have fluid in his lungs. At this point, you will need a vet.

What is his temp? I would first make sure he is warm enough. His temp should be at least 101.
