I just bought Ivomec Injectable Ivermectin because it's what the vet recommended. What dose should I give my herd?

Orally or injection? I believe it's 1cc/20 lbs orally or 1cc/40 lbs injections. They will pitch a fit and act like they are dying with injections because its painful.

It's injectable, that's what the vet recommended. Should I get the horse past instead of the injectable?

If you give it Sub Q where the neck meets the body..pinch up a nice tent of skin there and inject it...then get them moving..it stings but its amazing how fast they get over it..: ) 1 cc per 40# is correct...

We'll have to do it that way next time. I literally thought a couple of mine were going to die. I felt so bad for them.

Not sure if this is the right spot. I have 10 month old Boer buck. Has had diarrhea day and a half, off his feed, lethargic, no fever. Unfortunately before I realized he was not feeling well I wormed him. Any ideas?

Its better to start your own thread so your needs dont get lost BUT
what wormer did you use and how much...washe treated for cocci?
I would give him C D Antitoxin if his poop is like loose pudding to water. and pepto to help dry him bum and sooth his gut ..if you dont have any or cant get it give Milk of Magnesia 15cc per 60# to help bind the toxins in his gut..but no Pepto with MOM...you want the MOM to flush the toxins..so let it run its course BUT keep him hydrated with electrolytes (recipe to follow)...B complex will help restore his appitite and energy...give him hay and green leaves only, no feed until he has berries..keep working with him to drink and nibble on hay and leaves.a good dose of Porbios would be good too..

Homemade Electrolytes

A half gallon of hot water
2-6 Tablespoons of Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses
1-2 Tablespoons of Either Sea Salt, Epsom Salt, Baking Soda or Table Salt.
1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix well and drench or let them drink it..

mamawcurry- Start with pepto and if you have access to a vet take in a fecal sample so you can know for sure what type of parasites you are dealing with. Also, check his eyelids...they should be pink, if they are too light then you need to inject Iron 100 because you will not only be fighting parasites, but also anemia. It also helps to give them a little pedialyte or gatorade in their water if you don't have the above ingredients for homemade electrolytes. If he doesn't want to drink then use a drencher, make sure he stays hydrated!

Thank you everyone for your help!!!! :D
