    Well I did.....and my feed store worker said yes. Everyone says something different though. I wanted other opinions and experiences using it on goats if anyone has any.

    Perfectly fine. I use it on all our animals here. [​IMG]

    I'd use it on the children but my wife won't let me.... [​IMG]

    As much as I've gotten on me, if it was dangerous - I'd be dead 10 times would most of my animals [​IMG]

    Here he is my Sannen buck.

    I washed him up w/ dawn and put some blue kote on all his skin issues. Put some permethrin to stop any more bugs. I did also get it all over my hands and arms. It seems purple not blue though.

    His name is Frank and I think I am changing it to Barney.

    Yep, on white is looks purple....really everything LOL. It also smears all over, so he'll probably be very purple tomorrow..... [​IMG]

    I just posted on FB this evening that I love Blu Kote! I use it on everything. Goats, cats, dogs, chickens, name it! Never had a problem yet

    It specifically said not to use on cats....don't know why? I was thinking cause of weight but then it should specify for dog size. I know some dogs that weigh less then some cats.

    Great on rubbing everywhere, I hope it don't rain. It was all over my hands and forearms but I rubbed down with rubbing alcohol so it took a lot off.

    I don't know why it's called 'blue' when it's really purple? Very messy - I always endup with more on my hands, than on what I'm treating LOL Now I like Vetericyn it's clear like water so no mess but it works great for just about any type of wound, infection or prevention and healing. I have used it on my dog after surgery, kittens with icky eyes and even for cuts on myself. Just wish it wasn't soo expensive.

    I've read where people thought about putting it on their legs/hip area and going pantsless - claiming they were wearing jeans [​IMG]
