I just got my order of land of havilah, and it’s says 1/2 a teaspoon of the dewormer for a 75 pound goat, how is that enough? Does anyone up the dosage? Is that strong? If so I have no words, how can that little of dewormer be so effective?

It does also say how often to do it. It's much better to give small doses slowly and regularly than to have it all at once. I believe it's effective. I've been using it for a a little bit and I can see a pretty big improvement.

Thanks everyone , I was using Molly’s herbal dewormer and you need 2 teaspoon instead of 1/2 a teaspoon, so when I saw the dosage I was like, what 😲 how can that little bit do anything
Ah yes. I was using Molly's herbals too. However, I found that they weren't as strong as LOH. Land of Havilah's dewormer is so strong it almost burns my hands when I'm rolling the treats out.

I sneeze every time I open the bag. 😂
I sneezed as well, I wanted to see if it smelled as strong as Molly’s , so when I opened it I stupidly put my face up to the bag and took a sniff, I almost fell over it smelled so strong, don’t need smelling salts any more LOH will bring any one back to consciousness, lol

I give that exact amount mixed in food every day for 3 days after a doe kids, then once a week in her food for a month. I also add 1 tablespoon per gallon of water in a bucket once a week for 2 months after kidding and once a month the rest of the year. If anyone seems like they have an issue after kidding, I also make go to cookies and mix about a quarter cup of it in. I can give you the recipe if you want (LoH, flax seed, flax meal, molasses, etc). My goats absolutely love the cookies.
