I gave my goat the last little bit of valbazen I had yesterday because her eyes were white. She probably got about 4ccs. She weighs about 100lbs. The valbazen is old.

In an effort to not lose her I bought cydectin for sheep.

Question- how long do I have to wait to give her the cydectin and how much should I give?

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

I wouldn't wait to give the Cydectin. Between the low dosage and the Valbazen being old, that probably won't do much. I don't know the dosage but I know you give a lot of the sheep Cydectin.

be sure to support the doe for anemia as well
red cell 6 cc per 100# once a day for a week then once a week until color improves
B 12; B complex PLUS or B complex once a day
30 cc of a acv/water mix once a day to speed recovery
high protein food, pine, cedar branches, alfalfa all help rebuild red blood cells.

What is a booster dewormer? And......

I just gave cydectin to another female. I pulled her babies. They should have been off her two weeks ago. Is that going to have any impact on her udder? Like will she get mastitis from the cydectin? I will milk her each day and dispose of the milk.

Cydectin does not cause mastitis,

And yes, the 10 days doesn't change, because the worm life cycle doesn't change.
