Parasites are a continuous learning process in goats, especially in the soggy NW area of the US.
We have created this page to help goat owners better understand and manage parasites in their goats. Below is a list of information/articles compiled by NWODGA members to help goat owners. If you are experiencing significant problems, we always advise seeking veterinary advice promptly.
* These articles are for information only, may vary in their information. Please research for yourself, seek advice from your veterinarian, and know what your doing before dosing your animals. Also it is always best to have a Fecal Test done via an experienced livestock/goat lab, such as one of these labs listed at the bottom of this page, to see which parasites you need to treat before treating.
