Wormers commonly used on goats

Safeguard (only wormer on the market labeled for goats)
Use 2 or 3 times the suggested dose because the worms have developed resistance

Ivermectin (gets most worms other than tapeworms and lungworms, kills lice)

Valbazen (kills most worms and tapeworms)

Tramisol (kill most worms including lungworms, but not tapeworms)

Cydectin (newest class of wormers, and most effective because of its newness, still doesn’t kill tapeworms, it is probably best to wait to use this wormer until all others fail)

Other parasites:

Coccidia: use medicated feed for kids, treat coccidiosis with Corid and/or Sulmet (The best option is to drench affected kids with recommended amount orally instead of putting it in the water. That way you know each kid gets enough)

Lice: Use commercial lice powder and/or worm with Ivermectin.
