    Fecals ran this morn - 4 have high egg counts - strongi -3 are young unbred doelings - the other is bred doe with 43 days to go -

    Just want to make sure I have this right since I haven't used Ivermectin before (normally cydectin) -

    I need to buy Ivomec Plus injectable (is this correct?) but I will give it orally at ?? is this 1cc per 30 lb or 1cc per 50 lb? I've seen both these doses on this forum.
    And this is OK for a doe this far along?

    thanks for the help - Would normally ask my vet but I had these ran at the Univ Animal science lab (saves me a ton of $ on fecals) Glad the other girls looked fine on their fecals so will wait until kidding to worm them.

    Some use it at 1cc/30#'s. I use Ivomec Plus at 1cc/50...BUT when I use Ivomec Plus, I use at that rate and I worm every 10 days for 3 wormings.

    With fecals, this has proven to drastically lower counts of flukes and HC eggs in some and completely clean others. That was last summer/fall...with the dormant parasites now, (winter) I'm running fecals about every 3 weeks and worming accordingly. I am noticing a rise in egg counts and it's coming time to copper boluse again...so, I'm hoping with the boluses and the next worming I can get the counts down.

    Do you copper bolus while your does are bred? Mine are due for another bolus before they kid. With all of the confusion about copper, I wondered if I should wait until I see deficieny or just stay on the 6 month routine. :/

    Yes as will plain Ivermectin. The plus is for liver flukes. Vicki
