The heartworm dose is = to what is in heartguard. Never had a positive heartworm case.
    thanks. i want to start on this but i am very nervous about it.

    Ken: you state you recommend the commercial product for 1 or 2 dog owners, but isnt the commercial product experiencing a lot of breakthrough cases? other than cost, isnt this a close 2nd for using ivermec over the commercial product(s)?

    or do you feel the number of breakthrough cases is not statistically significant for 1 or 2 dog owners?

    Nancy,

    Just to be clear, when you say "deworming" dose, are you are referring to roundworms, hooks, etc.?

    I would think you're NOT talking about adult heartworms, which would be dangerous to attempt to treat in this manner.

    Dogs should be tested to affirm they're heartworm free before ivermectin administration.

    Yes rounds hooks etc. Yes they should be still tested.

    my older dog has chronic generalized demodex mange, and gets 1.2 ml of ivermectin per day, every day. The dose for heartworm prevention is about 1/3 of that, once a month.
    There's a HUGE safety margin.
    He has gotten as much as 2.2 ml per day when the mange was very active, but did have some nervous system side effects at that dose.

    But NOT for herding dogs (collies, etc.).

    no, and not for some dogs of other breeds.
    Which is why, when you start treating demodex, you start at a very small dose and ramp up to the therapeutic dose. Dogs of any breed can be ivermectin sensitive.

    I've given my lab and several other dogs 0.1 ml Ivermectin/10 lbs for 9 years now with no ill effects and no heartworms. I put it on a piece of bread and they eat it like candy.

    After following posts on Ivermectin for awhile here and on other forums, I started my Boykin on it last month.

    My Veterinarian recommended 0.1 ml for the 30 lb dog. I didn't question him but assume he wants to use the lower dose only for heartworm preventative, rather than the "deworming" dose of 0.1 mg/10 lbs.

    I've read elsewhere that although dogs can tolerate infrequent high doses, prolonged usage can affect the liver.

    Just an FYI, my own almost 13 yo just had a chem panel and he is normal and I have been using the highest dose for @ 10 years.
