    Do you guys worm your goats on a schedule with certain kinds of dewormers, rotating them and using specific ones at specific times of the month??? If so what is your schedule and what kinds of dewormers do you use at what times of year??? Or do you just get a fecal/worm exam done at the vet every so often to see if your goats have worms and then treat them as nessacary???

    I used to worm if I saw pale lids or unthriftyness, then I had my vet run fecals 2 x a yaear and would worm as needed, since I've learned to do my own fecals, I do random checks and worm as needed. Spring and Fall are the normal time that worms seem most prolific due to warm wet weather and animals being on pasture more frequently.
