I got my first Nigerian Dwarf Dwarf just over a year ago and fell in love with the breed and bought more in December, March and July. Each of them were chemically dewormed by the breeder before purchase (I bought them all from the same place). With the wet season upon us, I need to make some deworming decisions. I don't want to use chemicals and would really like to know what brand(s) of organic/herbal dewomers are best, or a recipe to make my own. Ideas or suggestions?

Also, no one appears to have worms at all, but it seems commonplace to preemptively deworm "just in case". Is it neglectful not to deworm if they are happy and healthy?

I’ve used DWA with huge success. It is a herbal mixture from firmeadowllc.com. i heard about it from reading a response by someone in this group awhile back and am very thankful for that. It saved my goats’ lives. They were riddled with parasites and worms from their previous home barely surviving.

:welcome @Muffin ! I see this is your first post. :D
I am mostly a lurker too, but the folks here are friendly and encourage us to come out of hiding as much as possible.
I don’t have goats, but maybe someday I will. This is great information to know. I’m going to look it up. I’m really glad you were able to save your goats.

Thank you!! If you end up getting goats in the future, please Do the research ahead of time for good and trustworthy breeders. Our rescues were originally A foster situation and the breeder keeps breeding CAE positive goats. I’ve learned so much having these sweet goats that if we ever decide to breed and raise goats, it will be after these three have finished their lives. Health maintenance on sick goats is expensive and can’t imagine treating A herd like this. 😬

I've heard good things about molly's and land of H. I went hoeggers as a starting point and haven't felt the need to move on so far.
Has Hoeggers started back up again? I know that after Anne died and the people that took over helping the family but ended up running it into the ground, the business folded. The family tried to make good on their orders, but were struggling and stopped trying to get orders filled. Haven't been able to order for several years.
