Default Deccox-M

I'm thinking about using Deccox-m this year. Is the goat dose different from the calf? How many kids/for how long will a bag do. It's spendy but seems like it would be more convenient for me.

Does anyone in my area know if there is a place to get it (in or around Spokane, WA) or who has the cheapest shipping prices?

Jefferspets.com is the cheapest that I've found and most reliable.

Yes, the dose is higher than the lable dose (which is for calves.)
I use it at the dose of 1/2 teaspoon per kid/ per bottle/ until they are about 3 weeks or 15#'s then I go up to 1 teaspoon per kid per lambar. I also start them at 5 days old. But, I live in the south so we have to fight coccidia from the beginning.

guess you could, as it's made to be water soluable...but, I generally stop using it when I wean and go to Corid every 21 days until the doelings/bucks are about 6-7 mo. old. By this age I definately would want to have to catch them every day and drench. I wouldn't depend on putting it in the water as to each kid getting enough and as we all know, one off-taste in the water bucket and water intake shuts down.

So with shipping from Jeffers it will cost me about $52. How long will this bag last? How many kids will it do-estimate? I am expecting kids from 9 doe's.
Kaye, you dose by bottle-what if they are getting more/less feedings? I do 4 for about a week then go to 3, then eventually to 2. Will I have to up the dose then?

I put it in the 1st bottle or lambar and the last of the day. My babies are on the lambar by 5 days old!
I raised 6 doelings and 2 bucklings and used 2 bags. They were weaned at about 3 months old and then went to corid.
I think for me the Decoxx-M in the lambar is just more convient than individually dosing twice a day. Once I finally get into a routine, it's easier for me to remember....meds go in lambar before I put the lid on.
