This is the prevent schedule I developed and use for our own herd. We were extremely pleased with the results. Diarrhea, which was almost a given with kids at some point, is no more. The kids put on size much faster and are all in all much healthier.
This prevention treatment uses Molly's Herbal Worm Formula.
To administer the herbs:
You just mix them with enough water so that you can suck the herb slurry up into the drenching syringe. You then give the amount recommended in ml to each kid. If the kid is really bigger than "normal" you can give him a bit more. If he is smaller than "normal" you can give him the stated dose or a bit less. Click here for information on the oral dosing syringe that I use.
Make into dosage
balls. Divide the balls accordingly to correspond to the liquid amounts given on the chart below .
1 ball = 10 ml
I also sometimes add a little bit of probiotic powder to the herbs when I mix them up for the kids.
I treat on Wednesdays so I always remember the day: "Wormer Wednesday". Formula #1 is given three days in a row.
I group our
kids by "batch". I round the batches to the closest Wednesday.
I have set up a Spreadsheet / Template to help with calculating and keeping this schedule straight.
Just replace the kids names and start date information I have entered with your own. This Spreadsheet / Template runs on Microsoft Excel; you MUST have Microsoft Excel Installed to run this "program".

Coccidiosis & Worm Herbal Prevention 4 Week Schedule :
(This is what I use for our herd)
You can adjust this to a three week schedule if you need to.
Dose amount is based on normal sized kids. You can adjust amounts if your instincts tell you to.
IMPORTANT: If you see any diarrhea, immediately administer Formula 1#. Depending on the situation, one day treatment may be enough. If they still have diarrhea the next day, give another dose. If they still have it the third day, dose one more time. Keep them on the same schedule they were on, even though you gave the extra dosing...
