I am going to follow OFA dosage, as my vet doesn’t raise goats.....and you and I live in Florida, parasite heaven.What is the Safeguard dewormer dose for doelings? They're about 2 months old.
Thanks. My goats don’t have any signs or symptoms. I just want to do preventative treatment. Or should I not?Remember it must be given 3 days consecutively. This is how this dewormer works, it is basically a glucose inhibitor.
When not used properly this is what builds resistance.
Do not deworm if load is low- have a fecal run.
2 month old goats should not have parasites.
You are more likely to have coccida on goats this age and dewormers do not work on coccidia.
Thanks. That’s true, I’m concerned after the amount of rain we got the other day with the storm...I am going to follow OFA dosage, as my vet doesn’t raise goats.....and you and I live in Florida, parasite heaven.
I use two diffrent wormers at the same time, this spring it was SafeGuard and Ivomec, repeated in ten days...both given orally
No, this is how resistance is built.Thanks. My goats don’t have any signs or symptoms. I just want to do preventative treatment. Or should I not?
Ok thanks a lot.No, this is how resistance is built.
Deworm ONLY when the parasitic numbers are high enough to where they are affecting the goat.
