Successful parasite management is essential to maintaining a healthy goat herd. While parasites are naturally present in most goats, they become disruptive to health and productivity in large quantities. Goat owners can prevent parasitism by keeping a clean environment and frequently rotating pastures. Working with a veterinarian to analyze fecal samples, deworming strategies targeting the life-cycle of the offending species can be implemented.

There is no one correct strategy for a parasite-control program: you must diagnose the specific problems in your herd and work with your veterinarian to create a program most appropriate for your goats.
