    Hi
    I have a question about worming before delivery. We have some does getting ready to kid in about a month and I wanted to worm them but not sure if I can use Cydectin. I believe I read that is ok but want to make certain its ok this close to delivery time. Thanks.

    I wouldn't. I would worm them after kidding with that since after kidding is when all the eggs hatch because of the change in hormone levels and what not.

    Yep, RunAround is right, worm the day of kidding then in another 10 days. There are safe for preg wormers but I've never done it.
    Kidding is the optimim condition for parasite parties.

    I worm my preggo does ....1 month prior to kidding..... Also..that's the time..I CD&T the Does..... it helps with stress loads..... at kidding time and the worms don't take over at that point.....it also helps the kids... until they are old enough to be wormed/ vaccinated..........after they are born.....I only use Ivomac Injectable ....down the throat 1cc per 33 lbs.... ( Do not use "Ivomac Plus".. it is harmful to preggo does)..... I don't hit them 10 days later..... and never have an issue..... always have strong healthy kids.....and momma's... :wink: :thumb:

    I too have wormed my pregnant does 1 month prior to kidding, and also just like Pam, I vaccinate them then too so the kids get some immunity from mom
