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.

I would not give a pour on orally. It should go on their back. But that won't really help with any worm problems. I'm not sure why the vet would give you the pour on type instead of the injectable.

We give the cattle injectable orally, not da pour on.;)
Now. If there are external parasites the injectable can be injected.
The blue pour on is not used any way but topically to my knowledge.

If you don't give a pour on orally why is Cydectin recommended ? it's a pour on.

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.

I am not giving any wormers orally, except valbazen after kidding. Injectables give a higher and longer drug level residue.

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.

Yes. But 1cc per 40 lbs is for injection. Usually people give 1cc per 25 lbs orally.

Round up right... like for 45 pounds do 2 cc (orally) for 60 do 2 1/2 cc (orally)


Also I am going to treat every ten days for 3 times then 30 days later... should I buy it all today ? will it keep sitting in a syringe ?

yep!

Why not buy a whole bottle of it along with needles and syringes? Maybe get what you need to do the first shot and then order it right away to do the remaining shots.

It will only cost me $3.50 for all my herd to be treated.
for the 10 days for three times and then 30 days...

I already have needles and syringes. But I am giving this oral.
for the 10 days for three times and then 30 days...

I had planned on worming with cydectin, but I read some where you had said that if you use cydectin first when it no longer works you have no where to go ?
