Any wormers that are also used for sheep, but for most you will need to up the dose to about 1.5 to 2 x the sheep dose.
If you think your goats have worms (maybe do a worm count), then yes quick worming is necessary. If you only need a few doses your vet may be able to give you measured out doses.
As wormers are not approved for goats you will need to judge your own milk withdrawal times, we normally feed the milk to the pigs for 7 days (but the goat kids still get their share).
