Looking at your pictures. The first thing I do is get my air bubbles clear. Yours are still fuzzy..which makes the identification of the worms harder. I saw a large cocci. But with the blurry picture .It could be two different worms. So many times the digested fecal matter can look like worms. That is why focusing on the air bubbles..brings the focus to the floating worm eggs.
Also on your worm charts..check to see their magnification scale. And then see what lens you are useing. Ok? Hope this helps.

Yes..it gets tricky. I usually can see a pattern in my goats. Usually barber pole, strongyls, brown stomach worm or large/small cocci. Thats pretty dominate for my guys. Luckily most dewormers kill the worm eggs I might miss on the fecal. Lol

Strongyl on first one
Cocci & fecal matter with the air bubble
Thank you! Guess now I know what I'm treating for most of what I saw looked like the strongyl & cocci which might explain why this dang lamanchas so hard to put weight on and my bottle brats slow to grow. I already ordered sustain III bolus for the cocci now to see what they have in town for the strongyl a that's pregnant for safe thanks again!!!!!

Your welcome. I love the Ivermectin blue pour on. It does a great job. I dont have dairy though. I believe you cant drink the milk for a few days after use. So you might want to check into that.part.
I use Corrid for the cocci.

Ivermectrin's what I used on her last time it apperntly didn't do much so time for a new option I think. Corids my usual go to but I read about these boluses and only needing to give it twice seems like a big plus.

Please do not use a pour in orally!! Ivermectin sheep drench or injectable only (can be given orally as long as there is no anemia). But if you say it didn't do much, I would switch to cydectin. Again, NEVER THE POUR ON!
I use horse wormer . And thanks Ive been trying to figure out what to get is cydectin safe for pregnant does?
