    I was looking at the Fias Co Farm site and ivermectic was listed. I went to the feed store and found this:

    IverCare is the brand name, underneath, it says (ivermectin) Paste 1.87%

    On the back of the box, it says:

    CAUTION: IVERCARE paste has been formulated spicifically for use in horses only. This product should not be used in other animal species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result.


    Do I use this still?

    Thanks,
    Jamie

    I think all horse dewormers say that, but I have used always them in goats with no trouble at all. I think they put that on that on label for liablitity purposes. :shrug:

    Anyway, for goats, give 2-3 times the horse dose by weight. (if you have a 100lb goat, give the 200/300 lb dose marked for horses).

    ivermectin can be fatal for dogs of the working class.

    It is fine for goats.

    triple the goats weight and then give that dosage.

    I figured it was just for liability purpose, but just wanted to be safe.

    Thanks!
