    Well, I figured Merck would be more responsive to my vet, so he called his Merck representative who assured him the supplier (apparently there is an intermediary supplier for all the Merck products) had this. The supplier couldn't find it, so Merck gave him the product numbers/listings, he called the supplier back, supplier is still trying to figure it out...

    It's new, lol, but I'm hoping to have my hands on some soon. I'll let you know how much it is once the supplier actually finds it [​IMG] I figure I pretty much have to get it from my vet now that he's jumped through this many hoops [​IMG]

    Now I just need to try and convince my local feed store to start carrying it in stores.

    I think it's probably to expensive.

    Last time I bought Safeguard for goats I bought the gallon size from my vet. It was much cheaper than at the farm store. Good thing it has a long shelf life, I probably have a lifetime supply since I am now doing my own fecal exams and am not using as much of it. I have no intentions of doing anything differently so I won't be looking for any of the AquaSol.

    Interesting idea.. I wonder if I can get some through my vet. She sees horses and other livestock so I'm wondering if I can get some cheaper through her ..

    A liter of Wormout Gel is about the same price as a liter of Safeguard. One thing I need to do is to find some info on the wormers in it. Lots of info on Praziquantel, and I'm pretty sure the dose is in the 10 mg/kg range, not sure about the other drug.
