    Well another reason to not send dh to TSC for me. I have always used reguler ivomec in my worming rotation. Asked him to pick me up some so I have it and he brought home ivomec plus( in his defense the box is also brown like the reguler injectable. Does anyone know if I can use this? And what the dosage would be. I noticed lice on 1 of the older goats and want to get him taken care of. Didn't notice on my others but he is 19 and lays around a little more then the others. Way too cold to use a pour on( not that I usually do that). Thanks

    Ivomec PLus is the best wormer to use as it covers such a broad range of worms. Good job hubby. :) Use the same dosage as you use with Ivomec.
    Use as an injectable if you are treating for lice.

    HeHe....they try though... :laugh:

    If your Does are preggo ...do not use it on them...otherwise... it is a good wormer the difference between the plus and regular...is... the plus... takes care of liver flukes.. :wink:

    Ivomac Plus is the same dosage as Ivomac is.... :hi5:

    Thanks Pam & Jess. Nope no 1 preggo had my baby for the year( and vvery spoiled). Herd size @21 so staying there for now. I am mostly just concerned about my old guy. I know I am lucky to still have him here so try to really do as much preventive stuff for him as I can- he deserves it. Ok so maybe I can trust him to go to TSC now if I could only talk him into going for groceries :chin:
