    Hello,
    I have a few questions that I was hoping someone could help me out with. Several people have told me that "Double Impact" (Ivermectin) wormer that is designed for cattle and swine is safe to use on goats and pregnant doe's. Has any one ever used this product? and is it actually safe for pregnant doe's and doe's that have recently kidded? I just want to be sure to be safe before I give it to them.
    Thanks,
    Ashley

    Yes, it is OK for goats Orally. We use it as well and Dectomax is what we rotate with. They are both safe for goats. Also we use Cydectin. I think Cydectin and Dectomax are the best 2 wormers for goats. Both ar used Orally. I like to change Wormers often.
