Default Ivomec pour on dosage

Does anyone know what the dosage for the ivomec pour on is for mites? I tried a search here, but didn't find the dose. Also should I put it down their backs or on their legs where the hair loss is?

Not sure on the pour on.
Do you have injectable Ivermectin? That also will take care of the mites and or lice.

Yes, they had 2 doses already. Injected, not topically. Their legs looks worse, so wanted to do something different.

Interesting. It should have taken care of external buggers. Hope that the pour on works! I wonder if a whole different route like topically applying peremethrin oil would work better. That is whatI use so I don't have to give wormer unnecessarily.
I put it in a needleless syringe and in the ND's I put 5-10cc's and then have no more external buggers

For heels & lower legs I just spray the cattle pour on every 21 days until it clears up. It usually only takes 2 or three times.
Be sure to get it under dew claws using rubber gloves. If there are open sores they wont like it but too bad.

Well I sure hope the Pour on works. Have you done a scraping? Are you sure it is a parasite as opposed to a fungus or something?

Our vet did not do a scraping. He had thought it was a fungus, so that is what I was treating it like at first but just continued to get worse. But did the ivomec inj. just in case. At that time it was just on one doe. Was so bad she had celulitis (sp?) and was on antibiotics. I had another posting about her.
I now have it on another doe and our young buck. At first they weren't itching, now they are all itching at it. No other goat has it.

Yep I already have pics. Its looks different on all of them
This doe is the one that had it first. It looks dry and scaly all the way her leg. She had a couple raw bloody spots that did heal but her legs still look aweful.


This doe started out like this. She had dots that looked like bites up further in her legs, with sorta amber colored crusties. She has lost more fur since. Shes a little crsuty under the heels like the other doe, but the rest of her legs don't look the same.

The buck. He is not pastured anywhere near the does, but I do handle them all. His just looks like bare spots.


I find is strange that there is nothing on any of my other animals and I can't figure out what this is?
