    Thank you for your reply, my post is not accurate. It should say about 15 pound's and she is not very tiny. I guess I shouldn't be in a hurry and read what I wrote!
    On scale today, she is 13 pounds so I was off even at 15.
    Yes I know I should get a fecal done on her but I was always taught to check eyes if pale worm. This is old school and I know I don't want to create resistance.
    About the Cocci treatment with Cord again always done as a preventative measure.
    Things change over the years on how to treat goats, that's why I signed up on BYH to do what's best for my goats.
    Thank you again,

    If you are going to give the ivermectin I would give about 1/4 ml

    How old is she?
