Deworming Goats (Dosages & Kinds Of Deworming Medications)

On this page, you will find a great guide to use when it comes to deworming goats. Typically since a goat has a much faster metabolism than other animals, the dosage is quite a bit higher, you can reference this guide below to find what dosage and what classes of deworming medications to use. Typically when you deworm a goat you should deworm them with a dewormer from 3 different classes/groups on 3 different days in a row.


Ivomec (Ivermectin)
Treatment & control of: Lungworm, gastrointestinal roundworms, larvae, lice, mange mites & cattle grubs. External Parasites.

Dosage: Given orally to goats, at the rate of 1 cc per 50lbs. Lately, many breeders have been using a higher dosage at the rate of 1cc per 34lbs with great success. Safe for use in pregnant does.


Valbazen (Albendazole)
Treatment & the control of: Lungworms, gastrointestinal roundworms, stomach worms, tapeworms, intestinal worms, & liver flukes (Adult)

Dosage: 1cc per 10 pounds given orally. Do not give this to pregnant does during the first 45 days of gestation. To play it safe, you should not give this to pregnant does at all.


Safeguard, Panacur, Benzelmin (Fenbendazole)

Treatment & control of: Lungworms, gastrointestinal roundworms, stomach worms, tapeworms, intestinal worms, bankrup worms & nodular worms, liver flukes (adult)

Dosage: Using the dosage on the bottle of a horse/cattle kinds, give the goat 4x the dose – according to your goat’s weight. For example, if your goat weighs 100lbs, give her the amount of wormer for a 400lm horse. There is now a goat version, you can use the goat dose on the label. Safe for use in pregnant does.


Tramisole, Levasol, Prohibit (Levamisole)

Treatment & control of: Lungworms, roundworms & gastrointestinal parasites

Dosage: Tramisole injectable 13.5% is given subQ at the rate of 1cc per 50lbs. Oral sheep tablets are given at the rate of 1 table per 50 pounds. Prohibit powder – follow the directions on the package for mixing it with water. Once mixed, does it orally at the rate of 1cc per 20 pounds. Safe for pregnant animals. DO NOT overdose this dewormer, there have been reports of toxicity if overdosed.

since prohibit typically comes in a large pack that makes an entire gallon, not everyone needs a full gallon at once which should be kept cool to make it last longer, to make smaller doses you can use a kitchen scale to measure out this mixture.

Put a small dixie cup on it and zero it out. Then pour 6 1/2 grams of prohibit in the cup and then mix in 62cc of water into it and that is the mix and dose 5 cc per 100 lbs.

Here is the break down.

52 grams (Prohibit) 500 (ml/cc Water)

26 grams (Prohibit) – 250(Water)

13 grams (Prohibit) – 125(Water)

6 1/2 grams (Prohibit) – 62.5(Water)


Cydectin Pour-on (Moxidectin)

Treatment & control of: Lungworms, gastrointestinal roundworms, larvae, lice, mange mites.

Dosage: given orally at the rate of 1 cc per 20-25lbs. Do not pour on goats, unknown if this is safe with pregnant does


One of the biggest problem worms that cause major goats issues and cause them fast are the dreaded barber pole worm! This is a stomach worm, to get rid of this you should use 2 to 3 different classes of dewormers over a period of 3 days time, one kind on day 1, different class on day 2, then a different kind of day 3 to make sure you got rid of the barber pole worms.

Worms typically will cause the most issues in warmer wet periods of the year.

Do not overuse dewormers as this causes worms to become more immune to deworming medications which results in the deworming medications being less effective over time.

If you have a goat that does have a worm load, you should deworm again 10 to 14 days again to make sure you have got the entire worm load, eggs, etc.
