Are apple seeds ok for goat because I give them apples sometimes and if it’s fine to give them the seeds I’ll not bother to take them out next time
Thanks 😊Everything in moderation. But it is fine to give whole apples.
What natural dewormer are you using? If you are using pine trees and pumpkin you are correct it's not enough but they still helpI know the natural dewormers probably aren’t enough so don’t worry I deworm them regularly.
I use Molly’s herbal dewormer , it says to give it to them every week but i give it to them every two weeks because their eye lids are always so nice and pinkish red I check their eyelids every week but their always pink but if their ever white or light pink I would deworm them every week . I do deworm them with stronger non herbal dewormer once a year.What natural dewormer are you using? If you are using pine trees and pumpkin you are correct it's not enough but they still help
But deworming them regularly is not good either, never deworm on a schedule. Only worm if you have a fecal done and it comes back and it says they have worms. When you worm on a schedule the worms can get immuned to the dewormer UNLESS you are deworming regularly (which I think you have to ) with natural wormers like LOH...
Thanks so much for the list that was very helpfulGreat that you are trying to learn all you can to help your goats be healthy.
The only pine that I can think of that would be a problem would be juniper. I've heard juniper is poisonous to goats.
Most root vegetables are good for goats. Carrots and beets would be two that would come to mind. Pumpkins and squash too. Goats aren't made to be able to consume a whole bunch of these things, so don't go crazy with the amount you give them.
Most tree branches are very good for goats and they can have as many of them as they wanted once they were used to getting them. I give mine oak, yellow maple (not red), beech, and hickory just for a few examples. Oak leaves are high in tannins and that can help with deworming too.
