Re: Generic Hartgard
with the ivermectin paste, do you empty the tube into a bowl and mix it? Ivermectin paste that is sold in tubes for horses and cows is not uniform throughout. When you're dosing a large animal its not a big deal, but can be dangerous when dosing smaller animals. You may end up with a dose that is 4x the strength of ivermectin you wanted, and the next dose with 1/2 the strength you had wanted. I know of smaller animals that have died because of this, and I'm sure it could hurt a dog as well.
