    I have been using dewormer pellets that do not have any milk withdrawal- but would like to rotate with an ivermectin paste. Is there any milk withdrawal time if I use the latter?

    If you haven't bought any yet... Take a look at Eprinex. It's a similar class of wormer to ivermectin, but it's a pour on (also will kill mites and lice) AND there's no milk withdrawl time on it. It's not cheap, but a bottle of it goes a loooong way.

    I use the ivermectin paste and do a withdrawal of 3's reccommended to be longer but I've not had a problem yet.

    I usually do a withdrawl of seven days no matter what wormer. If i find something for a specific wormer that says longer i go with that. I say better safe then sorry.
