Welcome to the Sheep, Goats and Camelids preventive care information page. There are only a few FDA labeled products that are licensed for use in these species.  Some of the recommendations we have listed are based on experiences we and others in the industry have had.  Some of the de-wormers we have listed can only be used with an established relationship with our doctors and your herd.  For these reasons we highly recommend consulting with our doctors prior to using these products for instructions on  proper use and drug withdrawl periods.
