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, manage, and avoid extensive parasite loads in their goats. This is a list of articles and information compiled by NWODGA members and listed here simply to help goat owners. If you are experiencing significant problems, we would always advise seeking a veterinarians advice.
* These articles may vary in their information and dosages, please research carefully, 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.
