    So I'm a bit low on money, and Horse Ivermectin Wormer paste is only like 5 bucks, however Goat wormer liquid(ivomec) from the vet is like 15$ for three goats. So I was wondering if I could get Ivermectin Horse Wormer Paste and triple the dosage for my three goats.

    Goats;

    68 lb Nigerian Dwarf 2 mnth pregnant Doe
    80 lb dairy cross wether
    85 lb boer doeling

    Is this safe?

    I've used the horse pasta wormer on my goats and sheep with no problems and had it work well. I doubt what it said for a horse. Shelly

    I use it too- seems to work fine. But you can get it much cheaper through Jeffers if you ever place orders there- most catalogs carry it for about $3 per tube for generic.

    I do however think you are supposed to triple the dose since goats are ruminants. All I use on my goats is horse wormer. I use ComboCare gel. It kills almost every type of worm including tapes.

    I used 3 times the dosage. So Thomas my 80 lb wether got treated as a 240lb horse.

    sorry I didn't see this thread till now. Yes 3 times the dosage.

    Alyssa I will have to look into that wormer. It is a gel instead of a paste?

    I use horse ivermectrin, too. We got 12 tubes of generic stuff for $1.86 each! It worked great, too.

    Yep, I use this stuff and so far has worked fine. 3 X labeled dose. Can't get anything else this cheap!
