Hi everyone. I have read sooo much conflicting info on the internet, in books, everywhere! About when and with what medicine to deworm my kids. They are 5 weeks. I had read to do it at 8 weeks. But, I was going over some info, and found new info that said do it now, don’t do it at alll, etc. Then it was the meds....some say yes use ivermectin 1%....I have that..,but then it said it can kill young goat kids in the next article!! Obviously not using that! I already bought something, a paste that can be used on horses too? I can get the name tomorrow, but I don’t think it was one of the dewormers I saw readily listed. Going to TS Monday. Ok...thanks everyone!! :)

When I deworm kids for the first time I use safeguard for goats. I worm around 9/10 weeks old. I don't deworm much. I always check fermacha color before I deworm anyone.
