Hello everyone! I need to deworm my children but math isn’t my strong suit...

I have a mixed herd of saanens, myotonics, boers, and Nubians. And they’re all in desperate need of a deworming, however the only dewormer I could get at my current location is LevaMed (levamisole hydrochloride) Soluble Pig Dewormer. From my understanding this is the same chemical as Prohibit, but I’m unsure of the proper dosage for goats. It’s 18.15 grams of powder that you add 500ml of water too.

Thanks for any help! Hope you are all having a wonderful December!

I use it same as prohibit, it's the same thing. I do 2.7ml/25lbs per this link

There are other doseages that say 2cc per 50lb but it has worked much better for me at the above doseage from Cornell.
The little bottle that has powder for pig water? If so then perfect! Thank you for your quick response!

If you live in West Virginia as your account says, there must be some other dewormers available to you. Maybe Cydectin, Quest horse gel? Do you not have any tractor supply stores?

We do. But other than ivermectin and cydectin, neither of which will work for half of my animals as they come from resistant herds, the only thing is the LevaMed. Which sucks but hopefully we'll be moving to a better location that has more options soon.

I agree with @NigerianDwarfOwner707. Trying a natural dewormer wouldn't be a bad idea at all if you're able to do it.

I've seen so many farms recently show strong resistance to Prohibit. Prohibit is really the last big gun we have. At this rate, natural dewormers will be our only option anyways once all chemical dewormers stop working.

Here is my natural deworming regimen. I can say, with confidence, that it works. This method shows good results in fecal egg count reductions. It recently brought a friend’s numbers down from 6,000EPG to 800EPG in a day. I highly recommend that everyone gets started on herbal deworming before issues get out of hand. Don’t wait until chemical dewormers stop working, use herbs first and make sure that your chemicals are always a functioning tool in your belt for years to come.

Yep, I found it at TSC...was excited because I didn't have to order anymore and could get locally!
Soluble Pig Dewormer LEVAMED From my understanding this is the same chemical as Prohibit, but I’m unsure of the proper dosage for goats. It’s 18.15 grams of powder that you add 500ml of water too. Did you mix the pig dewormer as per bottle instructions. I have the dosage per the cornell Vet chart. What I was concerned with is it the same medicinal dosage as the cattle sheep dewormer by Levamed? Can you mix the Levamed pig dewormer as per bottle instructions and then dose properly from there. It's confusing there are drenching dosages and concentrated dosages. My goats are about 12 to 15 pounds. Per the Vet he said to use prohibit based on their fecal sample.
