    When talking about drenching with Cydectin, do you mean pouring it on the goat, or down its throat. Thanks :eek:)

    Cydection Pour On for Cattle is given BY MOUTH to goats

    NEVER pour it on a goat as their skin is different from the leather that cow hide is made of, and some have reported bad outcomes with this wormer poured onto goats.

    The dose is 1cc/25 lbs given orally. Do not underdose the goat. I give just a tad over because some will get smeared on the lips and my hands anyway.

    If you underdose, you will kill the weaker worms, leaving the stronger ones to reproduce.

    Oh, and you may already know this but 1cc = 1 ml
