    What, if any wormer can be used on a pregnant doe. I have Ivermectin on hand, but I don't want to cause an abortion. What do you recommend?

    Ivermectin is safe for pregnant does. I have ivomec plus injectable and just wormed all my pregnant does. Safegaurd is good for pregnant does too.

    Oops...I forgot to mention that I give ivomec plus ORALLY at a dose of 1cc for every 50 pounds. Others give at 1cc for 33 pounds I believe.

    If you need to worm a pregnant doe you can use IVOMEC or Safeguard wormer. These are proven safe for pregnant does.

    I wish you luck on your doe. :)

    Ivomec doesn't work around here anymore so I worm my herd with Cydectin. Pregnant does, kids, old does...I use it for all with no problems. This is in my herd of 150.

    The only worry of abortion is during the implantation phaze. So use nothing, wormers, drugs of any kind (unless to save the doe) on your does when first bred. You are safe using anything that is normally used after the first 21 days. What isn't safe is to use wormers that don't work on your farm because it is presummed they are safer than something else, because they aren't when they are also safe for the worms ;) Vicki

    Do you know about Golden Blend Goat Dewormer from the Hoegger Supply? It says its the only one safe for use with pregnant and lactating does and kids. I haven't tried it yet but looks like its a great preventative. www.thegoatstore.com
