Ok, so we chose the herbal route to deworm our goats....and it said that if they had a lot of worms we should see a lot come out in their stool. Well, I’m wondering, when will I see this.. I have not..yet but it’s only been a few days. Perhaps I don’t know what I’m looking for? Everybody seems pretty healthy..good stool, good pink eye color..only thing..they hate the herbs...lols..but they eat them just fine...it’s just like when I didn’t want to eat Brussel sprouts.

I've never seen work in the stool of ours except tapeworms. They mostly pass the eggs. I do fecals on mine and monitor their eye color so I know they aren't wormy. (They'll ALWAYS carry a small load of worms)

If their eyelids are dark pink, coat is sleek and soft, poop is normal, eating and drinking well, and they are holding condition, they should be healthy :)

Tapeworm and round worm will show. All other parasites will not. So they probably don't have tapeworm or round worm.
