Pretty much everything I've read says don't give Ivermec Pour On orally.  Although one goater I know who has raised literally hundreds of goats and really knows the science claims pour ons should never be given as such and only orally.  I do know cases where goats have died due to being applied topically.
What does everyone think?

This is  Land O Lakes Premium and I see nothing in the ingredients containing any meds.  Just milk products and vitamins/minerals.  It also says nothing about harmful for human consumption.  I've had a few glasses of it and no ill affects.
I too, never use milk replacer for my kids - I only have it because a friend didn't need it and passed it on.  It's also new.

Aren't there some of those brands of milk replacers that have scour medications, and prevention med's in them?  If I remember correctly our bottle calf milk replacer had those med's in it.  I haven't ever used the milk replacer for goats yet...we always used the Vitamin D whole milk on our baby goats, or real goats milk...one baby was raised on real cows milk and did great.  So, I don't know if it would harm you or not.

There isn't anything in it that would harm you, not sure of the taste, though. And it is pretty high in fat. Lol I use a lot of animal medication on myself and I do eat treats and nibble on grain and such. I'm still alive and healthy.

YUCK  Grin

I looked at the bag I am using on my 2 bottle babies and I would be uneasy with drinking it myself since it is made for animal consumption?  I couldn't find anywhere on the bag that says " not for human consumption or Harmful if swallowed",
So if you still feel ok 12-24 hours after drinking it, then I guess that answers your question.

With all your goats how can you not have milk???

I didn't have any milk in the frig so I decided to mix up my kid replacer.  It wasn't bad, and for my taste better than human powered milk.  Anyone ever drink this and would there be any downside or health issue to this?

I've never used it. I've heard good things and bad things about it. The vet says it really is nothing more than a gimmick. Who knows? I guess if the goat is sick enough, it might be worth trying.

Sad to report, the little goat didn't make it.
