    Default Ivermectin PS



    One other PS about Ivermectin, it's the active ingredient in heartgard, wich many dogs are on monthly, if it was effective against fleas, those dogs would not get fleas and that's simply not the case. Many dogs on Heartgard get fleas.

    I'vermectin is generally used for certain manges/mites, though that is changing due to many mites becoming immune to Ivermectin ( a huge problem in the pocket pet community) likely due to overuse. We're also seeing a lot of antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, especially in ears and urine.

    Default Ivermectin PS

    I learned about this at a discount pet store. I found that it can
    do harm to collie breads and our vet said that it can be VERY tricky to
    get the EXACT amount on your pet. Her friend who used it on her
    dog, ended up not being precise enough and her dog got heart
    worm.


    Be careful!!!

    Ivermectrin is a great product, BUT it can and will kill most of your collie breeds, they have reactions to it.

    Dosing is 1cc per 100 pounds

    So for a 10 pound dog you would use POINT 1 cc - this is very hard to measure. The product is made for livestock, so it's a bit more concentrated.

    It's not worth the savings for your pet, go to the vet get the correct product.
