Default Ivomec Plus Injectable

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!

Ivomec plus is a good wormer. I dose it at 1cc per 30 pounds.

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.

That is a good one, ivomec also takes care of lungworms, which also don't show up in fecals.

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

Why do you give such strong doses? it's 1cc/110 pounds on the label

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.

With my pygmies the vet said that the Ivomec used orally doesn't work on mange/mites and that you had to inject it for mites and lice, but the oral works great for deworming.

I just bought ivomec plus injectable tonight also to do everyone.

Can I give it to pregnant does?

If I want to use it as an injectable - do I still dose the 1cc/110 pounds? Since I had the lice outbreak a while back - I would like to give it by injection.

Thanks
Allison
