    Hi All,
    We drenched our girls yesterday with Ivermectin. I wanted to get others' opinions on withdrawal time, as some say 10 days is plenty, but I'm more cautious and think 2 weeks is better. Ideas?

    I do 3 days of withdrawal for our use, ivermectin, after all is used to treat for parasites in humans :? Milk that is produced during the reccommended withdrawal time goes in marked containers so that I know to use this first..95% of the milk my girls produce is frozen for later use.

    The milk with holding time for 1% ivomectin injectable given orally is 36 day...reccommended by the USDA......from FiasCo Farms site.
