    Those are roundworms. You can use Wazine, Safeguard liquid goat wormer, or Valbazen.
    Wazine and Safeguard are usually locally available, Valbazen often has to be ordered on line. Wazine goes in the water, works only on large roundworms, the other two are more broad spectrum and work on most common worms, they are direct dose so you will need an oral syringe, 1cc size is easiest, but a 3cc will work if that's all you can find. SafeGuard dosage for just roundworms is 1/4 ml per pound once orally and repeated in 10-14 days. It can be given for 5 straight days to treat capillary and gape worms. Valbazen dosage is 1/2 ml (or 0.09 ml per pound) given once orally and again in 10-14 days. For both SafeGuard and Valbazen, (and Wazine) toss the eggs for 14 days after the last dose.

    Sure, many people use the homeopathic de-wormer Cina, as I found out during my research. It's nontoxic, safe, effective and there's no egg withdrawal, but care must be taken in administering it. Here is the link, please read the comments too.

    But, you're not supposed to handle the pills directly as the remedy is often applied to the outside of the pills and when you touch them, most of the remedy will end up on your fingers ... The easiest way to dispense a pill is to tip one into the lid of the bottle and use that to tip it into the water. Storage at room temperature, away from light, strong smells, strong electromagnetic fields. As I was saying, care must be taken, but at least it's cheap and then there's that sweet, sweet NO egg withdrawal and NO side effects. :love ;)
