The two options that will be available to me right away is the sheep drench, which ivermectin is apparently not the way to go, and panacur solution which I can get from my vet. Last time I got this from the vet but he had only prescribed it for 3 days added to the water. I would like to know what is the full dose and treatment time for the panacur?
Panacur suspension *is* exactly the same as Safeguard suspension, both have 10% fenbendazole, but for some stupid reason you need a prescription to get liquid Panacur, but not Safeguard, go figure, lol, so just go to Tractor Supply and get the 125ml Safeguard bottle in the goat and/or cattle section. If they don't have that, you can use Safeguard or Panacur horse paste, they're also 10% fenbendazole.
If you have any doubts just call your vet and ask.
This is what you you need:
1ml syringe for oral dosing
Safeguard for goats
Safeguard for cattle
Valbazen for cattle and sheep
The Safeguard dose my vet recommended was 50mg/kg by mouth (.5ml per 2.2pounds) and repeeat in ten days.
