Equimax is a horse dewormer that is a combination of ivermectin/praziquante. Goats have a very fast metabolism so it is important to get a high dose into them so that some actually goes to work. The Equimax tube is like a drench gun, it has notches on it that allows you to set it to the dosage you want. Every other notch is marked for 220 pounds of horse. I was not sure the exact dosage that I should have given some said 3 times the dose while others said 2 times. So the first day I gave 3 times the second day I gave 1 dose and the third day I gave double to dose.
|Almond trying to get up|
|Here you can see her back legs are not cooperating|
|She is really trying to stand. This picture gives you a look at the hair loss on her neck.|
I have kept detailed notes about what I gave her each day and how she looked. Sometimes when you are in the middle of it all you think you will remember what you did, and you might, but I know that I wont. I wanted to be able to look back in a year or two and know exactly what I did.
|And up- you can see that she has not lost any weight. One of the symptoms of Meningeal is loss of appetite we have not see that with Almond which makes us hope that we caught it early enough.|
