    Positive Pellet works good, it's a feed you can mix in with your current feed or give an individual dose.

    You can use Panacur (fenbendazole) on them, too.

    Panacur = safeguard


    There is an "Other Pets and Livestock" section here which is really the place to post goat questions for maximum results:

    So I was reading a couple of my books, and there appear to be many types of worms that sheep and goats get. Treatment varies, depending on what worm they have, so it would be best to consult with a vet or goat/sheep breeders in your area.
