I use the Safeguard that comes in pellets with 16 oz per 1000lb animal.  The pellets are flavored like feed, and the goats, and dogs eat with their feed.  I give dogs the Ivermec  1/10th cc per 10lbs monthly, and SG every two months to dogs. The adding to feed is so much easier than trying to handle the large goats.  I also use Equamax, horse paste at times(Ivermec/tape) .  There is always so much confusion on the dosage of Ivermectin, which involves worming vs heart worm worming- which re quires much less Ivermec .  The 1/10th cc per 10lb is a universal dose for most animals (not collies or herding dogs), and it always gets the HW's in the larger dose, so why worry about the much lower dose required for HW, when the universal dose does it all--except tapes.  The Vets use much larger doses for dogs with mange, hot spots, etc. I recommend using the Ivermec SQ in skin conditions. The Ivermectin is used orally in humans for worms as well. I use the SG blocks for my donkey's as well, and they look great.

in a dog it's called Testicle Lump...and that's also known as testicular Cancer.  But that's all I can find.

You said the teste was rock hard? Wow, besides the size, he probably isn't fertile because of that. Did you ask a Vet what could be the reason?

It has the shape/ feel of a hard banana  Grin   I almost wondered if there are 2 small testicles crammed together in there?  No I never asked the vet, as he probably has no idea.

I did a little research to see if I could find the cause of hardened testicles, and I found nothing at all.  I found retained and distended and other testicle issues, but nothing about hard testicles.  A puzzler for sure.

Deb, I started using that website called Keep & Share.  It seems to upload really fast.  I haven't figured out yet how to post the direct image rather than the link yet...but I haven't really worked with it either.  I really like how fast it uploads pictures.  This new Windows 10 doesn't edit and reduce the pictures as easy as Windows XP did through paint to use the Additional options portion.

Congrats on the new babies.

I went down Thursday and got my trio. My babies, and her entire herd, are even more gorgeous in person than in pictures! I wish I had about $2000.00, as she had a few more for sale that I would love to own!

Once they settle down, I will get pics and try to post them. My computer is giving me fits when it comes to posting pics I have saved on it.

It seems the nicer the animal, the more apt you are to find something wrong with them, especially if they have a buyer!



Isn't that the truth.  Thankfully they were happy to take a nice solid brown boy I had.

oh goodness...that's a shame Julie.  Gosh I hate to hear this.  You are right.  He shouldn't be a breeder.  Man that just sucks...he is a really nice boy.
