    Lizzy is a new Momma. Her twins were born on the 24th. All has been great. This is her poop today. What do you guys think? Son is currently doing a fecal. Her FAMACHA is a 2. (Bright Pink) She is eating, drinking, peeing and pooping all good. (Except this today) She is eating shredded alfalfa, goat pellets, browsing on leaves. 20200130_155859.jpg

    Well, she has stronglodies in her fecal. Can I deworm her while she is nursing? We just did the entire herd but excluded all pregnant does and new Momma's. We dewormed with Ivermectin Plus on 1-26 for Stronglodies.

    You can worm while nursing.

    Yep.

    The stress from kidding must of triggered worms. Glad you caught it.

    Not until they are around 4 weeks old.

    Then you can get a fecal for worms and cocci.
