My vet told me Ivermectin Paste...at the horse dosage.
I've never had to do it yet, thankfully.

I use Molly's herbals and love it. I started in the middle of winter when I new they were relativly free of too many parasite, did a fecal. It took a feww weeks for them to get used to it in their food but now they eat it right up. I just had the vet out last week and he said they looked great and did not even think he needed to do another fecal at this time. I will have one done at the end of august to be sure. This years kids also have been on it since 2 weeks old and no signs of coccidia . We did have a tapeworm problem here last year and no signs of them either. I am in NY so my worm problem would not be as great as some one in the warmer areas but for me it works so far.

Your Vet does not know squat about goats. If the horse wormer is even still effective in your area the dosage is 3 x what it would be for a horse.

I lived in Fairbanks for a few years and I can't imagine worms surviving the winter freeze.

I use ivermectin pour-on, orally, based primarily on FAMACHA and some fecal exam work. I primarily spot-worm as opposed to whole-herd. Never have seen any sign of tapeworm in my herd. Lucky, I guess.

I rotate with Safeguard paste at 3 times the horse does for weight and Ivomec in-ectable which I use orally. Never had a big problem with worms. Sure does help though since we have been doing our own fecals.
