I need to do a first worming on goatie babies. The four twins are 6 weeks old, I'll hold off on the newborn.
I was going to use Moxidectin, which I've been using the past few years on adults. Per the vet. I understand from forums here now, that's probably not a good idea for kids. He said Ivermectin paste was useless on goats, so that's why I stopped using it.
I have a bunch of Ivermectin paste on hand for the horses. What would the dosage be for around a 7 pounder now? I can't find a reference for anything that small.
We have 4 pens now that are overeaten, each around 50 x 100'. Thirteen total goats, with a couple pregnant does due in May. Three pens have kids in them, so I'm concerned about what they might consume. I started giving Tolt today to prevent cocci. We are in the process of fencing in a small pasture and woods, which should ease conditions.
Can anyone provide dosing of Ivermectin in small kids?
