    I haven't seen this on the forum and thought was a nice read. Not that I completely agree with every aspect of it, but it nicely illustrated the use of meds, some of the problems with practices, and how to assess animals in different ways before treating them.

    Agreed...some of this depends on the goat breed, age, and such. I also don't think that the way to know if a parasite program is working is that the goat isn't dead. I kind of think that was in jest though. I looked up more on the placement of anthelmintic part too because the way it was written on the slide, it sounded as if there was NO recommended placement really (not pour on, not injected, not ingested??). It was clarified in another of their presentations in which they said that meds should be placed OVER the tongue, not just in the mouth, so they are completely swallowed. Again here, I would want more info on their reasoning.

    I like the "Which Dewormer to Use" slide...especially in acknowledging that quarantine drenching needs a (2)-3 part drench. Obviously if you have a pregnant animal you wouldn't drench Valbazen, but Cydectin and Prohibit should be your go to quarantine drench solution to prevent drug resistant worms. Then treating otherwise based on FAMACHA or whether you have tapes or others.
