    I might be telling it wrong. I have a 75lb that I give .40cc to every month. I think I meant to put .05cc not .5

    Ok so I am not overdosing my dog. She is fine and vet checks her regularly. He is even one of our club member. Sorry for the confusion

    x2 This is what I use. Ivomec is cheap which is also a plus if you have multiple dogs.

    I dose orally at 0.10CC per 10 lbs in theory but generally actually under dose at about 75 pct of this in practice most months.

    I note that this is an injectable solution for cattle and pigs, why do we not inject subcutaneous for our dogs.

    Noticed at Fleet Farm today they only carried the Ivomec Plus 1% for Cattle. Any difference between this and Ivomec 1% for Cattle & Swine?
