Goat Dewormer Concentrate

by: Dr. G.F. Kennedy

We are often asked what we can worm dairy goats with and what is the withdrawal time in the milk. There is a product that can be used with no milk withdrawal time and it is a very effective wormer when used as directed. The product Goat Dewormer Concentrate, active ingredient, Morantel Tartrate, is fed at one tenth of a pound [0.10 LB] per 100 pounds of body weight in a single feeding. To ensure consumption within six to eight hrs, the normal ration can be removed eight hours prior to feeding.

Product may be fed monthly to break the cycle, with a 30 day slaughter withdrawal.

About Ask-a-Vet Sheep

Veterinary services, procedures, biologicals, and drugs mentioned in this publication represent the personal opinions and clinical observations of the contributing author. They are in no way intended to be interpreted as recommendations without the consent of the producer’s own practicing Veterinarian. We strongly urge that producers establish a patient-client-veterinarian relationship that allows extra-label use when there are no drugs approved for treatment or if approved drugs are not effective. This procedure allows veterinarians to go beyond label directions when “prudent use” is necessary. The limited availability of drugs and biologics in this country is a major factor in restricting the growth of the sheep industry and allowing producers to compete in the world market place.
