I tried a new Vet today. I took one fecal from my little stunted orphan boy that coughs and is half the size of his brother, and a fecal from my Mama goat that has not been acting well for a few days.
He recommended a Sulfadimethoxine 12.5% drench. Tonight I was looking at the invoice and noticed under DOCTOR'S INSTRUCTIONS it says "use moxidectin for deworming"
What does the drench do?
I have used wormers but never a drench.

The Sulfadimethoxine is for cocci. It's great stuff! Use as directed for the full 5 days improvement or not. Sometimes they don't clear up till the last day.
The moxidectin is for the worms. Two separate issues.
