Goats/Goats.

Question
Is it safe to use Safeguard on a nanny within 5 to 10 days of giving birth?

Answer
Safeguard has fenbendazole in it (I use the horse wormer but liquid Safeguard also has the fenbendazole) and that is an okay wormer for pregnant does, and actually is okay for any goat (I start kid goats on this wormer at 2 months of age, although, again, I use the horse wormer Safeguard).  Hope that helps - Donna
