I lost 3 goats and 2 kids to worms because I listened to the vet telling me Panacur was the best wormer for goats. I had to pay for a post mortem but it confirmed worms were the killer.  Vets just don't deal with goats often enough. I was gutted, should have trusted my instincts and insisted the Panacur wasn't working.  Once it was proved it was worms the vet suggested I use dectomax which also gets rid of lice and I haven't had any problems since. I vaccinate with heptavacP but only as I have a handful of sheep as well so it seems daft to throw away half a bottle and buy something else for the goats.

In defence of Panacur - the first year I had my goats I wormed with Panacur, did the job well. However 2nd year it started to fail (10days post worming FEC still had quite high egg counts) and I have used Oramec since, now (for time being  :fc: ) worm-free.

Yes it worked for me initially but you shouldn't get resistance that quickly and I was careful not to give it too often as I didn't want to build up a resistance.  I would definitely not recommend it but I've had a bad experience, maybe other people have had no issues with it.
