    Safe for use in pregnant does.
    this is the site I found it on......I have been looking everywhere and I believe it is safe on any stage of pregnancy........because it doesn't specify otherwise.....I know I give ours ivomac inj...1 month before kidding with no problems....... :)

    Ivermectin
    Eg. Ivomec injectable (10 mg/ml)
    - 1ml/100lbs
    Given SQ
    Has been given monthly during pregnancy with no adverse effects
    Pour On 1ml/22lbs - not proven effective

    found on this site...I know it says sub Q...... but we give it orally with better results in goats....
    So ...I believe it should be OK ....If I am wrong ......someone please correct me.....because I am not a vet .....LOL

    We have used Ivomec in pregnant does with no problems. We use it orally as well. The dosage we follow is 1cc per 50 lbs.
