    Default Bare spots - Ivomec Horse wormer bare spots?

    A while back there was a discussion about using horse wormer cream with Ivomec on a dog's elbows to clear up callus spots. The argument was that the spots were areas where demodectic mites had taken over and the horse wormer with Ivomec would kill those mites and allow hair to regrow.

    We've had a couple of recent posts about bare spots, demodectic mange, etc. Has anyone tried using Ivomec horse wormer cream for those isolated spots? Did it work?

    I just use the liquid Ivomec that I mix for heartworms. Works GREAT for me. No dogs have ugly elbows.

    I have a questions about this. How do you know you are not giving a dog an overdose of Ivomec if you are also using this for heartworm prevention?

    hoping that you wear a rubber glove when you do this, if not you are absorbing ivermectin through your skin.....

    I have the same question as Mark. Has anyone had a dog overdose or even become ill due to the use of ivermectin meant for horses? or Pigs?

    Depends. If you do it regularly, you shouldn't have to worry about getting heartworms.....you or your dog.
