Believe me when I say... I feel awful about this.
I was so focused on getting the dewormer in the goat and measuring it out properly that I seemed to have missed the label on safeguards dewormer that says to not administer to lactating goats. And I did just that. My doe had a baby a week ago and I’m super worried! I have milked her twice today and a little bit yesterday and I have about a half a gallon. I feel really terrible but that doesn’t change what happened. Anyways, I was hoping some one knew what to do in this situation, and how long milk withdrawal tends to be. I am going to milk as much I can but leave some so baby can have some now and for later if I need it. Is there anything else I can do?
Thanks for any responses.
Josie

Safeguard is the only wormer I am permitted to use when I ship milk. 4 day withdrawl (8 milkings, but I go 12 milkings!)
