    This calculation is based on the 1.87% Ivermectin paste in the 6.08g syringe by Durvet.
    Thise tube will worm a 1250 lb horse
    Each 6.08 g tube is 6cc's
    1cc will worm 208 lbs
    1/2cc will worm 104 lbs
    1/4cc will worm 52 lbs

    When dosing, get an accurate weight on the goat and multiply by 3 to get the weight for the above doses.

    EXAMPLE:
    Bootsie weighs 85 lbs x 3 = 255 lbs so I would give her 1 and 1/4 cc of the paste....overdosing a little won't hurt.

    A 25 lb kid with a triple weight of 75# would get a little more than 1/4 cc
    This should be repeated in 10 days for 3 doses to ensure any hatching eggs are destroyed.

    Equimax is Ivermectin and Praziquantel.... Not sure of the milk witholding on the latter but Ivermectin is 9 days.

    BOTH of these meds are used in people so with knowing this, I'm comfortable with using the milk for myself after 3 days.

    I just logged on to figure it out Liz, thank you! Is it safe for pregnant does? I was told the injectable is and its the same stuff so I assume it is.

    As long as it's the 1.87% ivermectin paste I've not had any problems when needing to use it with pregnant does.
