There is only one approved product to treat goats currently in the US.

It is albendazole. The brand name is***** can be given to all the goats to treat for tapeworms.

The dosing is present on the package label based on weight of the goats, but a the dose is 2ml per 25lbs of weight.

This is typically a single treatment without any follow up treatments.

That should take care of the tapeworms that your goats have.
