    Hello, I'm a new Pygmy goat owner and my kids (born 5/13/16) have skin parasites. I have read to treat this with Ivomec but I am unsure of the dosing for a goat this size or even if it is ok to give a goat this small Ivomec. Anyone have any advice?

    I give 1 ml per 50 pounds, I have dosed at 1 ml per 30 pounds. You will have to do the math. I might give .01 or .02 ml depending on weight. I always give it orally.
