Thanks for all the helpfull information. I have a couple more questions. Luv you mention diluting with propylene glycol. What is that?? And Dutches you mention using "Ivomec" are you referring to Ivermectin?? I just want to make sure I get this right.
Finally, Doxy you posted the article from the book that has the dosages for each individual thing like
Hookworm 0.023 mg/lb etc. Roundworm 0.09 mg/lb
What if you want to prevent several of those types of worms?? do you add the amts to equal and use the total?? ex: .923 mg/lb ??
Propylene glycol is something used for dairy cattle for ketosis. But it is also largely used in many things, excellent dilution uses. It is in our lotions, shampoos, and foods. I just looked at the label on our blue cheese dressing and it is even in there. Why, I have no idea. Hum, that might be something I just need to find out! Anyways, you can get it at farm supply stores in the cattle medication section. You can also buy it out of pet supply catalogs, I use "KV VET" and "REVIVAL". Costs about $13.00 per gallon, but I did see it in Revival in smaller bottles.
When you are using it for several different worms, whichever states the highest dose, that is the dose to use. Do not combine the doses. When you use the highest dose, like say for example the dose for whipworms, then it will also take care of anyhing else that has a lower dose than whipworm (roundworm and hookworm). No need to give additional dose for heartworms when you are already giving some for intestinal worms.
"IVOMEC" is a brand name of ivermectin. You can find it in generic names for cheaper.
