There is a regular Ivermectin pour on for cattle. It is blue. That we use topically. That stuff smells like turpentine I sure wouldnt give orally.
The 1% clear injectionable for cattle (regular or plus) we do use orally.
Do not give the pour on orally!! The inactive ingredients are not good for goats given this way. If your goat has bottle jaw return the pour on and get the INJECTABLE instead. Injectable Ivomectine CAN be given orally safely. The dose is 1cc/25lbs for three day in a row. Repeat in two weeks for three days in a row again. Bottle jaw is serious, very important NOT to under dose. I seriously can't believe your vet said to give the pour on orally. Glad you checked in here...
Do you have a feed/farm store (any Blue Seal dealer, Agway, Tractor Supply Co, etc) near by? They should carry the injectable. The sooner the better. But if you can't get it until tomorrow they should be ok. How are they acting/feeling? Appetite ok?
Only on has it, she has been sick for a while, with worms. I wormed with cydectin two weeks ago. She eats a lot of hay, she nibbles at her grain but doesn't eat more then 1 cup a day. She grazes and walks around with the others. Jumps up when she sees me. I just can't get to town today, I have to work (where I am now). When I get off it is closed.
Yes, you can give it either way. I have had better luck, though, giving it orally at the dosing I gave previously than injecting it. Though for many it works perfectly fine by injection. It may have something to do with the tolerance worms in your area have built up to the wormer--not sure. There are some great discussions on this site about this subject that you can find by doing a search.
