    Is there anything - perhaps herbal - that can be used on a doe nursing kids? If so, what exactly is the name and do you know dosage for a Nigi?

    If not... :? should I use the same "human" three-day throw-out-the-milk rule for the kids if I use pour on ivermectin?

    I only use the chemical wormers and it is safe for nursing kids...I use the Ivercare paste.

    The herbal dewormer I found on http://fiascofarm.com/ has worked very well, even through a greening up since the drought broke. Since my does are pregnant I've only given them the weekly wormer, not the monthly wormer. Had a fecal done last week at the vets and they were at 1+ worm load after 3 months on the herbal (four would be a very high, serious worm load).

    Plus my goats love the dewormer and I use it as a weekly treat.
