    I worm any new goat right away.
    I only worm when I see signs of worms with my regular goats. Like weight loss, white inside of the eye lids. It doesn't happen often. Maybe once a year.

    Quote:That can be a sign of lice, mites or a mineral deficiency.

    ETA: Biting and sucking lice have to be treated with 2 different kinds meds.
