1cc per 20-25lbs, severe tapeworms problems may need 1cc per 10lbs. Milk withholding 5 days. Do not use in first 45 days of pregnancy.

I second Usernametaken....We never use on preggos.

And I use the 1 cc per 40# dosage, which has proven effective here (Indiana). Depending on where you are, you may not need to dose that
high.

Thanks for the info, I've been leaning towards Valbazen. I wanted a "all around" dewormer. & It seems in my area Valbazen is used, even in ads locally for goats for sale they say how even kids have been "given 1st CDT shot & dewormed with Valbazen" .....So I was thinking it was a good choice for my area (Pennsylvania). :idunno .... Still researching... :hu

I need to know what the correct dose is for Valbazen... I'm worried about overdosing since it says it can kill them and I've seen way too many conflicting amounts!

Goat-link says: The effective dose for goats is 1cc/10lbs body weight.

Various other places (like the bottle) say 4ml's per 100 pounds.


Help please?!?!?

Unless you way, WAY overdose, it won't kill them. The danger w/ valbazen is w/ pregnant does, it can cause them to abort.

Dose anywhere from 1cc per 40# to 1cc per 10#. If you've never used it, try the 1cc per 40# dose 1st and see if that works for you. If not, you can deworm again in a week at 1cc per 20#. If it doesnt' work at that rate....chances are your worms are resistand and you'll need to try something else.

Never give it to a pregnant goat, too risky.

X2 but I should add that I rarely use it. I prefer Cydectin or Dectomax.
