Medication Dosages  

First of all, we are not Veterinarians or licensed practitioners, so please do your research! This page is here simply as a quick aid for us to check on medication dosages for our own goats.  You are welcome to agree or disagree with our methods and dosage amounts, there are probably hundreds of ways to raise goats and we're not sayin' ours is the right way or wrong way...but it works for us.  This page is not intended as an indication for any goat farms other than our own.  We do not accept any liability for the use of this information. Now that the "I am a not a doctor or expert" spiel is stated. Here is what we use around the farm.
