Ivermectin Sheep Drench
 
Does anyone have the correct dosing? Her blood tests came back negative and I would like to start my girl on this. Thanks

It's the .08 solution.

You don't want the pour on. You want the 1% injectible. Though you don't inject it you give it orally. There are several previous threads here on the forum that discuss the dosing that you should be able to find in a search. There was actually one earlier this week.

Well I am not sure why the sheep product would not be suitable. What is the diluent? I believe it is propylene glycol in the injectable product. I would want to know that before I used it instead.

The fact that this more dilute sheep drug has an amber color and the injectable is clear (at least it looks that way in a 1mL syringe) would make me think maybe it is dissolved in something else.

I just remember a post years ago on another board that people were dosing it wrong and were giving way too much :( The post was from "Hexe" not sure if she is a member here.

The dosing that I am finding is .3 ml for a weight of 70lbs. The color is clear. I bought it on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Ivermectin-Sheep-Drench-8-oz/dp/B002BADTYG
Thanks
