Natural Way To De-Worm Goats

Many people use Shaklee Classic Basic H (including us) as a natural way to de-worm their livestock - we currently use it for our cows, Nigerian dwarf dairy goats and LGD.

Here is what is recommended for worming - You can read a complete article here.
1. Measure out Classic Basic H for the animal you are trying help eliminate worms. For cows, use 1 cup per 100 gallons of water or 1/8 cup per 20 gallons of water. For smaller animals like goats and sheep the dosage needs to be smaller. Measure out 6cc. or use 2 drops per 10# of animal weight. Some people do this for 3-7 days, others do it as a one time only treatment.
2. Mix the Classic Basic H with water. For large animals the cleaner can be added to the water trough. For smaller animals, mix the 6 cc with 8 oz. water. Place the mixture in a turkey baster and give to the animal.
(We use 2 drops per 10# of animal weight.) For example: A 40 lb. goat would get 8 drops of Classic Basic H added to the drinking water once every 4 months.
Note: at first some of the animals don't want to drink the water, but that is the only water offered till gone - they catch on pretty fast! Right now, I worm my animals every 4 months (3 times a year) with Shaklee Classic Basic H. I'm sure there are a lot of variations on that.
Basic H is a green cleaner made by Shaklee, and has been on the market for over 40 years. There are over 1001 uses for Basic H (Find some of them here!)
According to Joel Salatin who wrote the book "Salad Bar Beef" Classic Basic H can be used to control worms in all livestock animals. You can purchase the book "Salad Bar Beef" by Joel Salatin from Amazon here!

The Classic Basic H is different than Basic H2 - Here is some info on that:
 Shaklee Basic H was the original formula, now known as Classic Basic H. Over the years, customers and Shaklee Distributors have found many different uses for Basic H that is not consistent with the labeling of the product. Shaklee Basic H was meant to be used as a non-toxic household cleaner. It was soon discovered that the original Basic H was purchased for many other uses! (Shaklee does not endorse these uses because testing was not done in regards to uses other than cleaning and household uses).
Shaklee learned that Classic Basic H was being purchased by farmers and ranchers as a great way to control horse flies, worm cattle, control crop pests and many other uses. Classic Basic H turned out to be a great all natural alternative to farmers. The home gardener started to realize that Basic H helped with greener grass, healthier plants, sunburn, mosquito control, ant killer, car wash and so much more! Again, the Shaklee Corporation does not endorse the product for such uses but customers will always tell you it is amazing.
Several years ago Shaklee wanted to get the "Green Seal" of approval for Shaklee Basic H and they had to reformulate it. This is when Shaklee Basic H2 was born. Shaklee Basic H2 is more concentrated, if that is even possible, and it is mainly used for cleaning purposes. Some people have used Basic H2 for a fly spray, mosquito spray and some of the other uses discovered for the Original Classic Basic H. If you are a farmer, rancher or use Basic H for purposes not listed on the label it is highly recommended that you use the Classic Basic H. Basic H and Basic H2 are very similar and work equally well for its labeled purposes.
As of now, Shaklee only produces the classic Basic H in a 5 or 30 gallon drum - you can see more at our website here!
Some people that still desire the original Classic Basic H will purchase a 5 Gallon supply and split it with other Basic H lovers to help reduce the cost.
