We were able to get some Cydectin from a friend of my mom's who has it for his cattle and we have the dosage correct (double checked it on here) So we plan on worming all of her dumps offs tomorrow with it. She ended up worming them with the SafeGuard just a few days after she got them, but hasn't seen much improvement..how long between SafeGuarding them can she use the Cydectin?? Is it safe to use it now? Few questions on this though.....What worms does the Cydectin get rid of and how often should we worm them with this? What kind of worms/parasites are most common in goats? What are the advantages of using this wormer labeled as a cattle pour on over using the SafeGuard labeled for goats? What worms does SafeGuard kill? On the Ivermectin, what worms does this get rid of in goats and should it be used on a regular basis or not? I use Ivermectin for my dogs as heartworm preventative (same active ingredient in HeartGuard and when you own giant dogs the meds from the vet are overwhelmingly expensive). I got the tip from an old timer vet (now retired), my mentor and breeder of my future show baby and from a giant breed rescue group when I was fostering Mastiffs, Danes and Wolfhounds (Giant dogs would be too pricey for me to pay for HeartGuard pills every month..much more ecconmical to use the Ivermectin) Also...I buy the Safeguard 10% suspension for goats in the 125 ml bottle to worm the dogs. Also got that tip (and proper dosage) from the same three sources. Not only does it kill most any type of canine parasite (including several species of tape worm) it also gets rid of things like Girardia in canines which you would usually have to see the vet for (not to mention spend an arm and a leg for the same product). And, unlike the over the counter stuff..this stuff actually kicks butt and you can have even the worst of infestations completely clear in about 3 rounds of SafeGuard. So..I was just curious the uses in goats with these as I'm familar with them (not the Cydectin though..never heard of it until I came here) Oh....since I know several here have dogs (and most probably already know this stuff) I figured I'd post the dosage for canines on what I mentioned earlier. Ivermectin 10% injectable solution for heartworm prevention: 1/10 of 1cc per 10lbs of body weight given every 30-40days. Can be given orally or injected subcutaneous. I prefer to give orally....shoot medicine at the back of the dogs mouth, but on the roof of the mouth to prevent them from inhaling it. Would like to note that I test yearly for heartworm and reccomend anyone using this first get their dog tested for heartworm to make sure they are free and clear before starting preventative. If they are positive for Heartworms the vet will have to determine how bad it is and what route will work best to save the dog's life.... Also works to get rid of demodectic mange (thought it's a slow process) Same dose as above, given every 4 days until skin scrape comes back clean for the mites (also works on ear mites). -Do NOT use in collie breeds as they are sensitive to Ivermectin-- SafeGuard 10% Suspension: 1ml per 5 lbs of body weight given once a day for 3 days in a row. Imporatnt to give for 3 days and do not skip days between dose. Use as your all purpose canine wormer every 30-45 days to keep canines parasite free (which is imporant as many of their parasites can be transfered to humans..yuck!).
