Customer Question

I have a 5 mo. old female Boer Goat with severe diarrhea, she has had this for about 3 months. I have used 5 different wormers -- Ivamac, Valbazen, Sydectin, Safe-Guard, and Prohibit(drench powder).
She has been fecal tested 4 times and has worm eggs in her stool each time.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

What worm eggs have been found specifically?

How heavy a burden?

Was the stool sample ever sent for bacterial culture?

Has she been kept on the same contaminated pasture between each worming and test?
