    I have a preggo doe that is due the beginning of may. Her eyes are pretty pale and she is coughing like she has lung worms. I already wormed her with Ivermec and it hasn't gotten better. Should I worm her again? I hate to give her alot of chemicals while she is pregnant.

    How long ago did you worm her? Usually when theres a worm load you dose them again 10 days later...the ivermectin is safe for preggy does so there shouldn't be a problem.

    I think it was on the 18th of March. I'll worm her again today.

    Another suggestion would be to get her some sort of iron supplement, it would help with the anemia.

    Where do you get red cell from?

    redcell is a liquid and I found it with the horse stuff at my local feed store.
