Ivomec 15 15
Dont use ivomec on collie type dogs This product is great! We use it for our pigs, chickens and dogs. However, use caution when using on dogs with collie genes as it can kill the dog. Check with the vet first. 06/12/2013
this can be dangerous and ineffecive I am a DVM giving you some cautions about this product. It can be highly toxic to some individuals, and especially cats. Over the last 18 yrs i have seen many, many pets that were accidentally overdosed by their owners. Ivermectin has a large margin of safety, but once the toxic level is reached, damage can be pemanent or fatal. True, it is widely used to treat red mange. But, dogs should not need to be on it forever. Demodex is not always a primary problem. Sometimes it results secondary to another illness. This is especially true in older dogs that develop demodex. If your DVM cannot treat the mange, find another veterinarian. But, BE CAREFULL with Ivermectin. It can be a killer. Also, some formulations of IVOMEC have other drugs mixed with it. So read carefully. 02/11/2013
Oral use. I have used this product as an oral med for my cats and dogs for all parasites (not tape worm). Recommended to me years ago by an old veterinary. ( .01cc per 10 lbs body weight.) once a month. Do not use more than 1cc at a time. At the time I had a kennel and a catery in Kentucky. I still use it for my 5 cats and 1 dog. 11/09/2012
Ivomec I have used this product for mange and am now going to use it for heartworms. I have 20 dogs for adoption and cannot afford the heartworm treatments available. 05/06/2012
Worth every penny!!! I have a 15 month old Blue nosed Pit Bull who is prone to mange. I first noticed bald spots forming at 3 months of age. Took him to several Vets getting misdiagnosed with eczema, benign rash, alopecia, etc. What ever he had it wasn't contagious since my other dogs didn't get it. I did some research and found out about Demodex, better known as Red Mange. It fit my dog's description perfectly. I let the vet know about this and he finally did a skin scraping to test my theory. It was mange and he prescribed Ivermectin 1cc orally. It was very nasty tasting to the dog. So much that he started to salivate at the site of the medication. Most of it he drooled out and didn't even swallow the correct dosage. So I decided to start injecting it (0.5cc) and it has resulted. In a few days I saw the fur on his neck start to grow back. Its going to take about 3 months of treatment but I see an improvement in his condition every day. 05/01/2012

I have a micro-mini potbelly pig and he is about 20-25lbs. He has dry skin, an orangish-brown stripe down the front of his spine and one bald spot. Ivermectin has helped him before, but I have only administered it as a monthly mix-in with a meal. My vet has told me not to use injectionables. Will this product work for my pig? If so, how should I administer it and otherwise, does anyone know where I can get the proper product?
This is Beans, my pig!

She is about 3 months old dwarf rabbit. She shakes her head from time to time. I think it might be because of mite. My vet checked her skin(in her back) and didn't find any mite. So, I just want to make sure that she is not suffering from pain or vexing parasites. (She is also a bit underweight.) Can I give her this as possibly a preventive parasiticide? If not, what can I give her? Thanks,
My "Peaches" has had skin issues since someone gave her to me. I've spent hundreds on her. She's had a skin scraping that said that she didn't have mange even though she had lost some hair back then. Normally Atopica has helped her but now it doesn't. My child support stopped and I can't afford to keep spending $95 every other month anymore. My local feed and seed store's customer told this would be good for her.
Answer:In short, NO. Ivermectin is an anti-parasital drug used to treat various parasites. Atopica is an immune system suppressant used to treat chronic allergies, much the same as prednisone is used. But, the Atopica does not lead to weight gain, systemic diseases, etc. You should discuss the situation with your veterinarian and try to develop an alternative plan. But be aware that if your pet has allergies, there is no true cure. Allergies are caused by their DNA. We can only treat the symptoms and secondary problems associated with allergies.
