Can only find iron -100 for swine. Does anyone know the dosage for ND goats? And is it ok to use? Thanks

Yes this is safe...its 4 cc per 100 # You can also use Red Cell orally 6 cc per 100#

Both are given daily for a week then once a week until color returns to the lower inner lids..
Vit B 12 supports the rebuilding of red blood cells as well....

I like red cell better for a few reasons...its oral and its less likely to over give...BUT if your goat is very anemic I would use injected at least the first time..I was reading a bit more and injected canbe given for a few days then weekly...so not for a full week..maybe 3 days..
Also a good thing to know is a very anemic goat would be hard to over dose since it takes a very long time to rebuild the red blood cells
