Okay forgive me if this is long but I want to be detailed so I can best manage my situation. I have a backyard mini farm with a fenced in acre. 2 Nigerian dwarf does that are 2 years. 4 ducks. 3 chickens. 5 barn cats. We just brought home a new 4 week old buckling from a farm 2 hours away. I took him to our vet to get his first CDT and disbudded. When they ran his fecal he tested for coccidia (which I’m aware is common and not so concerned about treating) but also hookworm. So I panicked and brought a fecal from our does who tested negative for both. The vet said it’s much more likely baby buckling got his parasites from his mom/old farm- and on a scale they use (1-4) he was a +1 that they had to really look hard and only eggs were present. She said there’s no way to know if he’s begun shedding the eggs and started him on panacur. I’ve begun dosing him, quarentine him to his own enclosure but they have all been free ranging together for 6 days- aka pooping everywhere. It’s impossible for me to pick up every goat poop pellet but at least now he is in a contained area while being treated. So my questions are, what should I know about the life cycle? If I manage to kill the eggs (inside him and the yard) can I possibly get ahead of this and save my mini pasture? Has anyone used Wondercide? It’s a product primarily made with cedar wood oil which is advertised as animal/child safe that attacks the exoskeleton of insects and hookworm at all life stages? I was going to buy enough to treat the yard twice then repeat monthly as I retest buckling for worms. Any other advice would be so appreciated, I’m so scared for my herd and flock right now and really want to get control of the situation . Also, I have politely informed the breeder I bought him from so they can address their much larger farm (out of concern, not accusation). I realize that having livestock means these things happen but I want to be ten steps ahead.
