Drugs (Anthelmintics) Used to Control Internal Parasites in Livestock

Disclaimer:Not all drugs are approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in sheep and goats.  The mention of non-approved products is for informational purposes only. I am not a veterinarian and this information is only used as a guideline- We are not responsible for any adverse reactions to your goats- make sure to fully research any medication before administering to yur animals.
The use of non-approved drugs constitutes extra label drug use and can only be done legally under the advice of a licensed veterinarian.

Note: That being said- Please keep in mind that the dosages given in this chart do NOT reflect the Correct Dosage for goats- The dosages here are too low to be effective in the use for goat parasite management. It is not unusual for goat breeders to use many veterinary drugs as "Off Label" or "Extra Label" for the use in their goats.

To Avoid additional confusion we have added the commonly used Goat Dosages in Red
