For those who have been using herbal dewormers...which one do you think works best for your goats? Do you give herbal dewormers along with chemical (Ivermectin and "white" dewormers, like cydectin) or just rely on the herbals to do the trick.

I personally like Molly's herbals. It's a kit with two formulas. Formula 2 is given weekly for 8 weeks (it's more of a prevention) and formula 1 is given on the 9th week for three days (it's the dewormer part). I use it by itself and so far we haven't had any problems with worms. This is the link: https://fiascofarm.com/herbs/mollysherbals.php/categories/herbal-wormer

We did not find Molly's to work for us.
However, Land of Havilah has been confirmed effective via fecals run so I will stick with it.
I did once use Ivermectin for mites. Based on anemia seen and continued mite problems, it really isn't so helpful in my area. Trying Eprinex now.
Trouble is, mites, mineral deficiency, and internal parasites are in this unhealthy love triangle lol.

I have only used LOH. I have been very happy with it.

I also just started using LOH about a month ago. We had a BP worm outbreak here and lost 2 goats. After that, I have been giving the stuff religiously, and some of my does FAMACHAS that are usually 2s, turned into 1s!! I don't know if that is from the chemicals dewormers I have been giving, or if it's from the herbals, but I definitely will be ordering another bag of it!! happybleats and NigerianDwarfOwner707 also say using essential oil have helped them, but I haven't had the chance to try those out yet :)

How often do you give it to them? If you don't mind me asking.

I have been giving 2-3 times per week, and 2x daily for 2 days after rain. I make sure to flush them out lol! I just put a splash of water in their grain with their herbal dosage, and they gobble it right up! I was doing oil, but it was attracting ants, so I switched to water haha

Oh, okay thanks! I have been giving it weekly but I think I am going to give it more frequently because their FAMACHA scores are a 2-3.

Go for it! Tell us how it works out for you! :) (May I suggest getting fecals on the 3's?)
I am going to try to get a fecal done soon. I also need to get updated photos of their eyelids (I got photos before I started using LOH) but they may not be a 3 anymore since I haven't checked in a little while.
