    I wormed my doe 10 days ago with cydectin , today I was planning on worming with Valbazen-- I've never used it before, but does that seem reasonable? Or I can do Cydectin again, but those are the only wormers i have... Doe has big loose stools, no pellets at all...? TRying to figure out a good routine here
    Thanks!

    If she is not pregnant you could use it. You don't want to deworm a pregnant goat with Valbazen. Dosage is 1cc/10#.

    yep if that is all you have then use the Valbazen Ivormec plus as your second wormer post kidding is better but I used Valbazen for a number of years.

    If you are drinking the milk, I would stick with Cydectin or use Eprinex, personally.
    I am not sure about withdrawal on the ones with a flukicide like Plus and Valbazen...does anyone else know about that?
    When we first got goats it was recommended to us that we only use the Plus when they were bred, not milking. That's our 100 days wormer.

    Valbazen and Ivermectin Plus both have flukecides in them, but Valbazen only has 48 hour milk withdrawals on it. Ivermectin products are way up near 30 days.

    Valbazen also gets the 4th stage larve of HC that Cydectin doesn't. It also gets tapes and lungworm. So being so much more broader spectrum if any of these things are a problem in your area, Valbazen is a nice after Cydectin wormer in the spring. Vicki

    Lisa, Valbazen was new back when I was dairying :) So it was what I used during the lactation. Vicki
