Ivomec for goats

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Anyone here use Ivomec for their goats?  What is your preferred method....do you give this to them orally or do you inject?  I wanted to give this to my two does for worms.  The package says it is for cattle/swine...what dose do you give goats?

We give our Boer and Kiko does 12ml orally of Noromectin (a cattle pour-on dewormer).  The half grown goats get 6ml, babies get 4ml.  The active ingredient in Noromectin and Ivomec is ivermectin, so they're probably pretty similar.

We were told to give the wormer orally by a wisened old goat keeper.  He says it works better because it goes right to the digestive tract full strength, rather than gradually through the blood.

Currently have 35 chickens, purebreds and crosses of Buff Orpington, Black Australorp, Barred Rock, Rhode Island Red, and Dark Cornish; plus two adorable Silkie/Cochin cross bantams.

For most wormers, yes (usually 30-60 days th).  But there are a few wormers that the company claims has no milk withdrawal (for cows).

I just bought my goats in Mar.  My freshened had been wormed chemically then.  Not sure if it was before or after freshening.  The woman I bought them from uses Hoegger herbal wormer in the summer while she's milking.  I'm using it too.  Had one tested, no O&P.  I was just wondering  if I had to do it chemmically if there was something I could use.  30-60 days is alot of dumped milk.  I suppose I could plan that when I'm bottle feeding couldn't I?  This is ALL so overwhelming!

When we wormed our dairy goats we fed the milk to the bottle babies for a while afterwords.  Each of the babies had a couple ticks but within 12 hours all of the ticks were dead.  So there's definitely something that gets into the milk. th

I thought I heard somewhere you could though kill off to much at one time though....all the good and bad?

Not sure something to think about though.

Can someone tell me if these can all 3 be used on goats and at what dose for each kind....thank you!

Why do some say they 10mg per ml and to dose the higher one at 75 lbs per ml and then the other brand says 5mg per ml and to dose at a lower rate of 1ml per 22lbs. What is the difference....seems like it should be the other way around to me. This is for swine per the labels.

Good work is not cheap and cheap work is not good.

Nothing good comes easy....and nothing that comes easy is good.

You use 3Xs the recommended weight dosage.  So if you have a 100 pound goat you give it 300 pounds worth of wormer.  there are different reasons to use either oral or injectable.  Injectable will also kill lice and mites.  I have not had a lice or mite problem yet, so I have only given orally.  I use the apple flavored ivermectin and they suck it down!  It is also safe if you accidently overdose.  I believe there is no milk withdrawl on Ivermectin, but that is not the case on many other wormers.
