This may have been addressed before, but I couldn't find it. I ordered Icomec Plus injectable for worming, but did I get the wrong thing? I am under the impression to give this orally at 1cc per 15 or 20 lbs. Thanks for your advice!

yes that is a good wormer. It is just like ivermec but also covers adult liver flukes. Liver flukes do not show up in a fecal so that is why it is good to use a wormer every once in a while that takes care of them even if your fecals are clean.
If you are in question of lung worm, what would your dose schedule be, I have pygmies, and I have three that have taken up coughing for a couple weeks, I did give a dose of Ivermec plus, but maybe I should give another dose. Thanks Debbie
I always overdose orally, but not as strong as they were saying. Also, will just throw this out - my two alpacas have to get ivomec monthly to prevent mengial worm. I was giving orally - 3 times the dosage (although my vet said I didn't need to triple dose). But the one kept getting mange on his legs and back - nothing was helping it, until I started to give the ivomec injectable instead. Not only is the mange almost gone, but they both have started to put good weight on now - after nearly two years of giving orally - I'm wondering if I should switch back to injectable for the goats now too.
