    I have 1.87% Ivermectin paste and need to know how much to give I have two dwarf goats that are about 60 lbs each and then a Boar about 140lbs and a spanish/boar at about 100lbs one of the dwarfs has twins that are about 3 weeks old how much of a dose should I give all of these?

    Thanks!

    Go by the dosage marks on the tube. For a 60lb goat you would give the amount for 180lbs, for the 140lb you give enough for 420lbs, for the 100lb goat you would give enough for the 300lb dose.

    The above dosage Katrina gave is for the 1% injectable. Its super hard to overdose on ivermectin but you don't want to underdose and end up with resistant worms.
