Deworming Chart Updates

The American Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control dewormer charts have been updated for 2021. Michael Pesato, a veterinarian from Mississippi State University has updated the three charts which give dewormer doses for different sized sheep, goats, and camelids. Additionally, the charts provide withdrawal periods, including for when the drugs are used in an extra-label manner, which is most common with goats and camelids.
