Ok so I have a few questions:
A) my Toggenberg has worms. I've attached a pic.. (I apologize for the graphic nature of the image)

ForumRunner_20130523_181014.jpg

Anyone know what kind they are? They seem to slither like a snake. Wondering what kind of vermifuge I should use.

B) anyone have any luck with herbal wormwoods? Should I start using them as a prophylactic or just stick with the medicine whenever she gets wormy.

C) she is in milk and while most online sources say its ok to drink milk from a goat that has worms I was wondering what y'all thought.

Thanks!

Thoses are Pin Worms. They are treated with Ivermectin and Safeguard given together. Thoroughly clean her stall. Burn the bedding and spray with Cy-Lence before rebedding. These can crawl from goat to goat during the night and humans get them as well.

Day1 Ivomec: 1cc per 22lbs orally if cattle injectable or 3 times the horse dose if paste
Day2 Safeguard: 1cc. per 10lbs orally
Day 3 Safeguard
Day 4 Safeguard

These type ofworms do not lay eggs in the goat. The eggs are in the bedding and in the dirt where they sleep at night.
