    Ran across this thread today searching for some universal wormers.
    Excellent information, this thread has been a huge help.
    I am setting up my Emergency Kit as well as planning schedules for my flocks.
    Have found several good links for meds that interchange with pigs/goats as well!
    Just wanted to thank you for the posts.

    Can they also be treated, anyone know?

    My vet told me to use Safegaurd at 50mg/kg by mouth and repeat in ten days, but since then, I read an abstract and think that worming at 20mg/kg three days in a row will probably work better.

    50mg of Safeguard is 0.5ml
    20mg of Safeguard is 0.2ml
    1kg is 2.2 pounds
    ml = cc
    Paste or liquid, same amount is used.

    Should also mention that Safeguard is safe to use in all animals, other wormers are not. Note that Safegaurd should not be used during molt or breeding season according to Plumb's Veterinary Drug Handbook.
