Excenel For Goats

Goats are a minor ruminant species. There are less than 1.9 million ( 1,900,000)   goats in the USA  (2013,  USDA) and the number is decreasing, so very few medications are made for them.    Drug development, testing, and approval costs seldom justify focusing on such small numbers.    Almost all of the  medications we used to treat goats, prescription or over the counter, are “off label” or “extra label” usage.    Lack of government approval does not mean that such products are dangerous or ineffective with goats.   You as a goat raiser must learn which to use and how to use them.

In many areas of the USA veterinarians know little to nothing about goats. Goat producers must rely on knowledgeable breeders  for the help they need to raise healthy goats. Find yourself a knowledgeable mentor and  stick with that person until you decide the information is incorrect.  Contacting multiple people on the Internet will only confuse you and may hurt your goats.   There is much bad information about goats on the Internet, especially on social media.
