I got some Cydectin Sheep Drench from the vet for Barberpole.  The vet (super experienced in caprines) wrote 11 ml for 60 lbs and this seems like a lot to me.  I haven't used the sheep version before (which recommends 1 ml per 11 lbs) and I realize the amount would increase for goats but I don't want to OD.
What say you guys?

I have always done 1 ml per 11 pounds and this is the dewormer I have used almost exclusively for the last 10 years.  You can give a bit more than that safely.  I always give a bit more than I think they weigh since I am not too sure about the weight tape being accurate.

If your goat has a confirmed case of BP with the bottle jaw swelling as well,  you will give it 3 days in a row and again on day 10 ( at least that is what I do).

No bottle jaw, but light pink eyelids and a bit underweight.  I've seen her stumble a couple times too, so tells me she's at least somewhat anemic?  I'm starting her on iron therapy as well.

Yes, Cydectin sheep and goat drench is given 1 cc per 11 pounds.  And given 3 days in a row for Barber Pole worm.  However, your goat does have BP worms if she is that anemic.  The worm is easier to kill than the anemia.  You must take that recovery very slowly, as Iron can be overdosed of which there is no cure for and is certain for death.  Make sure to give her Bcomplex with your treatment.  Bless her heart, she is a sick little girl, but in good hands.  please keep us posted.
