FYI

I just got an email today from racehorsemeds.com announcing a new product. It's toltrazuril powder. On sale it's about half the price of the liquid suspension, but has the same amount of active ingredient as the bottle of liquid.
Thank youfor posting, good to know.

Quick question don't mean to hijack but it's random. Can a powdered dewormer such as prohibit be used only in powder form and not mixed with water?
I'm not sure how you would administer it and verify they have received the correct dosage without mixing it with water and drenching it.

Well how do you know how much of the powder to add to water? However much that is, imagine you mix the powder with like, applesauce and drench, or dosage balls as treats.

Lots of math involved with figuring that out. With water you mix a certain amount of powder with a certain amount of water and then it is dosed by the liquid amount. So if you can figure out the powder amount per CC, then you should be able to get the correct powder only amount. Too much calculating for me.

I am sure it will be some thing like if you have a (fill in the blank) pound goat you will need fill in the blank much powder with fill in the blank much water

Hopefully it will be that simple, but we will see.

The bottle is 200ml and has the same amount of medicine as the packet contains (10g). So you can weigh the packet, divide by 200, and you get the amount of powder per ml of the fluid. With the liquid you dose 1cc (1cc= 1ml) per 5lbs of goat.
So the dosage is the same as the liquid. Nice!:great:

You probably have a vet like the vet I use in absolute emergencies. He will NOT look into anything. If in his mind, his book or whatever it is he goes off of thinks it’s approved for goats then he says it’s not and won’t give it out or says not to use it. I needed him for lute once and he wouldn’t give it to me or let me bring the goats in to give to them.

@pwesthuis While we acknowledge our need for vets, they aren't regarded as gods here. This is a community that has had to learn to work around vet ignorance through much experience and learning the science ourselves and passing it along. You'll find deep knowledge here about the medical needs of goats.

You add the entire packet of Prohibit to a measured amount of water. Then you dose each goat out of that solution according to weight.

You don't have to measure out the powder. The factory already did that.

But I would not immediately jump to such a strong wormer as Prohibit if I were you.
