    GridleyGoats: the age a kid needs to be wormed varies. I start worming mine at 10 days, but I live in a moist humid area and worms are abundant. I start with valbazen, then worm as needed afterwards with either ivermectin or cydectin. I start coccidia prevention at 3 weeks with baycox.

    JustGoats: I worm all does the day they kid with cydectin. You can give any wormer to a lactating doe, it won't hurt the kid. Just worm with what she needs, based on a fecal sample. You can either learn to do it yourself, you have to buy a microscope, or you can have your vet do it.

    Tape worms

    After about ten days of scours that I could only get to dry up for a few hours at a time I came to the conclusion that something else must be wrong. I was right.....TAPE WORMS. Ugh.....lesson learned. Anyway the two bucklings I dosed with Valbazen and man did the tapes go a running. That was ten days ago. No other signs of any more tapes but should I dose with the valbazen again for any eggs that may have hatched since the last dose or did I get them all with the one dose?

    I am new to owning goats. My 3 month old had developed diahrea and I am wondering if I am feeding her too much grain, alfafa and cracked corn. I have a 5 year old retired doe and a 4 month old wether.

    First, stop feeding cracked corn. How long have you had the goat?

    This is a very old thread so you may want to start your own thread.
