For internal parasites, Ivermectin products need to be given orally, not by injection or topically. Ivermectin has been greatly overused on livestock throughout the US and doesn’t work as well as it used to in many areas.
If you are using an Ivermectin product be sure to do your fecal egg counts regularly.

DO NOT under-dose dewormers.  In most cases it is better to give too much than not enough.

Internal parasites are the number one cause of illness and death in goats under 1 year old.
