Re: Ivomec Continued

I have a 15 pound Fox Terrier. I didn't want to taking a chance on overdosing him enough to cause blindness, or worse. I also didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars when I knew I could figure out how to do it safely myself. I looked at the 1% liquid, but the cheaper 1.87% paste intrigued me. I res...

Re: Ivomec Continued

I guess I could dilute the liquid, but I find the paste wormer very convenient. Try diluting the 1.87% paste Ivermectin as I have outlined above with 16 oz. of propylene glycol, it mixes really well, propylene glycol is the same stuff that is in the paste. Once mixed, you can store it in the fridge...

Re: Ivomec Continued

I don't quite understand the comment over priced when you say you know nothing about it. And from experience I find it hard to overprice something if you want to get the money back in a reasonable amount of time when it takes millions of dollars to perform all of the testing that is required before...

Re: Ivomec Continued

Another oddity, and probably just a marketing hype from Pfizer. This "safe, simple way to protect your dog from heartworms, fleas and other harmful parasites" according to pfizer, can only be purchased with a Dr.'s prescription, as I am sure you all know, and which is why you are reading this thread...

Re: Ivomec ?

Ok, I ordered a 16 OZ bottle of pure Propylene Glycol, I calculate it holds 473 milliliters of liquid. Adding the entire tube of ivermectin to this bottle of the Propylene Glycol liquid I round up to 480 milliliters of mixed product. My dogs require: Pepper = 122 micrograms of ivermectin Milo = 40 m...

Re: Ivomec ?

Like I said I was just curious. I am using the paste according to the way I have read others are using it. There has never been a problem, but if I am doing wrong, I need to know and I will do things differently. Hopefully there will be some more comments on this. Charlie Charlie: The ONE thing I h...

Re: Ivomec ?

Why dilute it? Just curious...I use the paste, one click for 5o# dogs...I just push it out on my finger and rub it off on the roof of the mouth. Charlie If my calculations are correct, this 6.08 gram tube contains enough for 1 - 1250 pound horse at 91 micrograms (.000091) per pound that puts .11375...

Re: Ivomec ?

Thanks for the most informative thread on this subject I could find. I have a syringe of IVERMECTIN paste 1.87% and I wish to administer it to two dogs for heartworm prevention, one is 45 pounds the other is 15 pounds (Fox Terrier). According to Heartgard for a 45 lb dog, they require 122 micrograms...
