    The cydectin I have been seeing has been for "sheep only" or cattle. Is this what I can give to possibly pregnant does? They look healthy but eyelids are pale. What would you do? :help:

    The Cydectin Pour-On for Cattle is what you want. You give it ORALLY to goats. And yes, you can use it on pregnant does, though I try not to have to worm pregnant does. If they have a long way to go in their gestation yet, and you think they are wormy, I would go ahead and worm them. If they are due within a month or two and they look healthy, I would probably just wait till the day they kid. If you want to be sure, have a fecal done by a vet. Do you know the last time they were wormed?
