Thanks! I'm still trying to decide what to do about this since I've never seen any indications of worms. Is there a reason you choose the end of October? My vet said it doesn't hurt to do it in April and October. I didn't understand the April part since that's the middle of our laying season, but I didn't even think to ask about that because my focus was on the sick duck.
I just do my water fowl by a reputable goose breeder s info she use to come on BYC raises Sebastopol geese but she had alot of health problems and I haven't seen her at all this year. But she says you worm before breeding season for geese, and since all my flock share feeders I figure this is the best time to worm for the year. no one is laying and I mix the wormer into their feed for 5 days. [safe Guard for sheep] @casportpony speaks highly of it.
Wazine kills only round worms. I used numerous other Natural products from the worm pellets can't remember the name right now they are from UK to DE but my chickens still got round worms. and k says Safe guard is very safe so I use it on the ducks and geese since I can mix it into their feed and Valbazen at the other 2 times since I can use a small needleless syringe to treat all my chickens with. I will not stick my hand inside my gooses mouth.
