Can goats be wormed with Ivermectin injectiable 1%.
If so how and how much.
I know the answer is yes, because that is what my vet told me to give them, but you give it to them orally.
i use the pelleted wormer. easy to dose.
I use the ivomec 1% injectible for cattle and swine. For goats it's given orally 1ml per 50 pounds. Or 1cc per 34 pounds.
I'm not a vet, so check online at some of the goat sites for dosage. This is what has worked well for me over the years.
# Goat dose: Oral
* 1 ml per 50 pounds- given orally.
* Some people are now using 1cc per 34 lbs with good success. This is 3X the label dose.
The above seem to be the most agreed upon dosage.
I use it, I also inject it, I don't dose orally anymore-too many goats to dose= a really high wormer bill...
1 cc per 85#'s. It stings-a lot- but they get over it quickly, less than a minute of hoof stamping and I haven't had ANY with the vaccine site cysts that they used to get when I used CD/T (we don't vaccinate for that anymore, haven't for quite a few years. We DO keep the anti-toxin on hand, but so far have never had to use it.).
ksacres do you inject into muscle or under skin?
Under the skin. Whenever possible I do sub-q.
