COWP dose for kids

Looking through archives I've found several dosing recommendations for different weight ranges, the lowest being 1 gram per 20# body weight. What about kids (presently 2 wks old)? Doe has signs of deficiency, but also want to use for parasite control for everyone. What dose/age do you start w/kids?

  • If you dose the doe, that will increase the copper level in her milk. The kids should not need any type of dewormer until after they're weaned. I've never given kids a bolus before 2 months of age.
