They are better, however, I am not sure they are not going to re-exhibit symptoms of barber pole worms (bottle jaw) and I am not entirely sold on using Basic H as a wormer. I prefer to treat illnesses nutritionally, if I can, and as such, I plan to try to make my stock less susceptible to parasites by feeding them copper wire particles. I just ordered Copasure boluses, empty gelatin capsules to make up smaller doses of the copper wire particles and a pill gun. Here is an interesting page on the use of copper boluses to treat copper deficiency in goats. This is also a good method to give my goats extra copper without using a commercially prepared mineral supplement for goats. I am definitely not going to purchase any more commercially prepared mineral mixes because I do not like that they add molasses to them. Another thing I’m going to avoid is sweet feed; instead making up my own whole grain mixture. If you read the labels on commercially-prepared grain mixtures, they do not read any better than commercially prepared dog or cat food.
We’ll see how it goes.
