    We just treated our does with Valbazen. How long should we wait before letting Buck into pasture with them?
    None were pregnant when treated, but is there a waiting period, since this dewormer isn't safe for pregnancy?

    10 days, it metabolizes very quickly.

    Interesting, I was told it was safer after 30-45 days. But then we don't normally ever use Valbazen until more recently. I still am not comfortable giving it any closer than a month out so we are using other deworming methods and only using Valbazen around breeding/pregnancy.

    I try to give it 1 month before breeding, give or take.

    We wait 30-45 days before breeding after using it
