    I want to have Ivermectin injectable on hand as I use herbal wormer, but don't want to be caught without a chem if needed. I want to use the injectable as a drench though. Below is the product description sent from my local farm and feed. Is this the correct one? I yes, dosage suggestions? 1cc per 85lbs?
    Thanks, Caryn

    We use the injectable orally at 1cc per 50lbs.

    We have since switched to the horse paste since it is cheaper and easier to give. Plus the goats like the apple flavor.

    Ivermectin is safe for preggers...the Ivermectin Plus is the one that is questionable.

    the one that you listed IS safe for pregnant does.
    Ivomec + - is not
    Valbazen - is not

    Yep, the others are right. The ivomec injectable, we've used here (given orally) and have had great results with it. ;)

    IvomecPlus is safe - I asked my vet and it says so on the label

    both can be given at the rate of 1cc per 20lbs others do differently but I have found this works and is closer to the conversion rates of how many milligrams per ml etc
