We need help quick. I need to know how to dose for goats and the yes and no ~ ages to give/not give, milk withdrawal ~ we sell the milk for consumption and crafts~wethers for meat. Our vet doesnt know the answer to these questions and would call the pharma. Co. But i told them i would only trust goat people that have experience with this. We have a nice herd going and do not want to lose the genetics we have built up. Fecal shows strongyles. Have used panacure, so maybe all that is left is strongyles-that is all the vet said they saw. Stopped using ivomec years ago because of immunity. Plz., has anyone used this long term for their goats. Help quick- vet is waiting to hear if i want this wormer and how much !

Panacur is only good for tapeworm and roundworm for most people. The withdraw times are what is stated by the companies.

If it still works for you, then use it. Just doesn't work for most people anymore. You can always look into herbals.

I had used the Land of Havilah herbals wormer month and a half ago. Still had white eyelids in some so did Panacur. Just got fecal results late yesterday on the strongyles. All they found in it

I use ivomec for strongyles. IME - herbals don't help with high loads, more of a preventative once they come back clean. I always go by stated withdrawals from the company - your vet is wise to check. I don't think use of wormers would affect genetics unless you are consistently worming without need.

My vet recommended cydectin after ivermectin proved ineffective.
All I could get my hands on immediately was the pour on. Vet gave me rates for oral use. I have the drench now.
I dont like to use the pour on orally as well as others here. It is easily overdosed and the goats nor I like the smell.

Dewormers

Cydectin has worked for me in the past. Look up the dose on internet sites; don't just go by the label. It tastes awful! . Panacur did nothing. My neighbor says diatomaceous earth works for her. I'm adding the copper oxide wire particle blouses. Does anyone have experience with that?
