I have a couple of friends who use Ivermectin for heartworm prevention. I decided to do the same and purchased Noromectin at the local feed store. It is 1% ivermectin. After I got home, I looked on the internet and see that folks typically use the brand, "Ivomec". Has anyone used Noromectin with their dogs? I know that the dosing is .1 cc or ml per 10 pounds. My dog weighs 64 pounds so I assume .6 ml is what I should give her.
Sorry cant help you. Ivermectin is deadly for alot of herding breed, and my mini aussies are one of those. Personally I wouldn't ever give my dog horse dewormer. I know alot of people do it, and I used to. I wouldn't do it any more, you can purchase cheap dewormer made for dogs either by internet or magizine. Good luck, I hope someone can help you
Illusionminis is giving you great advice. Ivomec cannot be used some in herding breeds.
I have had Boston Terriers for many years and Ivomec is the only heartworm prevention we have ever used. However, we are very careful with the dosing and you are calculating it correctly. I get mine at Tractor Supply Company and only purchase the Ivomec brand (it comes in a black box with an outline of a cow head or something on the box). Sorry I'm not familiar with Noromectin. I do know that Ivomec will take care of most all intestinal worms as well but it will NOT remove tapeworms.
Just be careful with the dose and keep an eye on your baby after you worm her with it. Also do not give it to dogs under 1 year of age.
Best of luck and hopefully someone will come along with more experience using Noromectin.

Don't worry about tomorrow; it has never happened before.
I just want to clarify that it cannot be used in SOME herding breeds. It can safley be used in a variety of them. My breed the Pembroke Welsh Corgi for one DOES NOT carry for the MDR1 gene that causes the drug sensitivity. Some non-herding breeds such as the Saluki and Italian Greyhounds among others can carry this gene too. Best to research breed by breed. I would say ask a vet but even my vet isn't up on which breeds are MDR1 affected and which ones aren't I had to have a sit down talk with mine to tell them that PWC's aren't affected.
Well, I have a Golden Retriever. I had read about the heading breeds so I think I'm okay as far as that goes. I also know that the dose is 1/10 of a ml/cc per 10 pounds of dog. I wanted to go this route because several dogs in the area in which I live have been coming up with heart worms. At least 2 of these are dogs whose owners I know, are faithful in giving the vet prescribed medicine (Heartgard). One vet in the area is quite frustrated because the companies are not acknowledging that there MAY be a problem with their products. Unfortunately, the feed store that I went to did not have Ivomec. Their brand of choice is Noromectin. The ingredients in each appear to be the same.
Hey I just took my Dog in for a Heartworm treatment at our Vet! He had full growen worms and I had to get him treated! But I asked my Vet about Noromectin and he did not have much to say. Other then it's not for Dog's at all. And if wanted to KILL my dog it would be a good way to do it! I just dont know if it's a lie B/C of MONEY! B/C I have been told it's fine to ues in dog's as long as you know how much and often to give it! So is my Vet just out for Money or what? Is it SAFE or NOT??? I uesed it for along time all my dog's have lived 15 to 17 years! Dave got the wroms B/C I forgot to give it to him! My falt work got nut's and well it happen! He is doing fine now! And i plan on giving him the Noromectin every month. 0.4ml for his weight! Now I am thinking about what he said and I am unsure! HELP!!!
I do hear you have to be very cautious with dosage. I'm preparing to switch over from Heartguard to Ivomec. FYI, for the post immediately above this, my vet advised 1cc per 100 pounds! That is a BIG difference from 1cc per 40 pounds, so I wonder about why such a big discrepancy between what I've been told and what you've been told. ????
I have used Ivomec in labradors, borzois and yorkies for at least 10 years. It is usually given 1cc for 100 lbs. But for sighthounds we have been told to give .1 cc per 100 lbs. Never give stronger than 1cc/100 lbs. Death is usually from a huge overdose. And as said don't give to collies, shelties or silken windhounds.
Pedigree indicates what an animal should be. Conformation indicates what an animal appears to be. But performance indicates what an animal actually is.
Noromectin is the generic for Ivermectin the dosing is 1ml per 20 lbs. You mix up 1ml.to 9ml's of purifed water for a total of 10ml's.You administer 1ml.per/20lbs. of body weight.If the dog weights 10lbs. You still mix 1ml. of Ivermectin to 9 ml's of purified water to equal 10ml"s. You still administer 1ml. of the mixed solution to your dog.You can e-mail me @ [email protected]
Now I am confused, from what I heard Noromectin is the generic form of Ivomec (yes or no)? The correct dosage for a 60 pound dog would be .6 cc, now the kicker is someone mentioning that this medicine must be mixed with saline or clear water? Is this true, yes or no? If so doesn't that water down the .6 cc of the dosage that the dog is suppose to receive?
I was going to start giving my dog the Normectin but I want to be sure that I am giving him the correct dosage to both kill the worms but leave the dog healthy in the process...so what is it?
I am using this on the dogs in our rescue and most of them are mixed breeds, so we have no idea what breeds they have in them. We have not had any bad results from using this. Our vet says that with the amount we use its not enough to harm them. BUT!!! you have to make sure you dose them correctly! From what I have read on all the heartworm preventive it has this in it some more than others and what we have come to rely on it not as good as it use to be. I lost my 11 year old poodle using heartguard monthly and she still got them.
I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH DIFFERENT TYPES OF BREEDS I HAVE ALSO WORKED WITH RESCUE AND SHELTERS ALONG WITH BREEDING CORGI’S, YORK’S, AND MY GREAT LOVE GERMAN SHEPHERDS.. I HAVE USED IVERMECTIN FOR OVER 30 YEARS.. I STARTED USING NOROMECTIN OVER A YEAR AGO BECAUSE I LIVE WHERE THERE A LOT OF FLEAS AND WAS TOLD IT WOULD ALSO HELP WITH THEM.. I DID NOT FIND THAT TO BE TRUE BUT I HAVE USED IVERMECTIN WITH GREAT SUCCESS. MY OLD GUY DIED AT 16 YEARS.. WE HAVE NOT HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH HEARTWORMS (AND COMING FROM THE SOUTH THAT ALONG WITH ALL OF THE OTHER WORM PROBLEMS ARE KILLERS).. I ALSO HAVE WORKED WITH A VET.. ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS WENT TO UNIVERSITY OF DAVIS TO BE A VET.. I HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS THAT HAVE KENNELS AND HAVE USED THIS LONG BEFORE ME.. THEY EVEN USE IT ON THEIR PUPS.. THE BIGGEST THING IS DO NOT USE IT ON A DOG THAT YOU ARE NOT 100% SURE IT DOES NOT HAVE HEARTWORMS AS THE WORMS WILL DIE AND CAUSE HEART FAILURE!! YOU ALSO HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL OF THE DOSAGE.. OF THE NOROMECITN I USE 1CC PER 10 POUNDS. I THINK I PREFER THE IVERMECTIN TO THE NOROMECTIN BUT I THINK IT IS BECAUSE I HAVE USED IT FOR SO LONG AND NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS.. ON MOST HORSE WORMERS (WITH IVERMECTIN IN IT) THEY HAVE RINGS.. I JUST USE THE EVERY RING TO 25 POUNDS MEASUREMENT.. I JUST ETHER PUT IT IN THEIR FOOD OR GIVE IT TO THEM IN THE MOUTH.. LIKE I SAID I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM.. I HAVE A LITTER OF 11 PUPS THAT I STARTED OUT ON EVICT BUT I AM MOVING TO IVERMECTIN.. AS SOME OF THESE WORMERS JUST DO NOT DO THE TRICK.. I HAVE HAD PEOPLE TELLING ME LATELY THAT THEY HAD BOUGHT OVER THE COUNTER WORMER AND IT KILLED THEIR PUPS ?? THESE ARE REGULAR WORMERS MADE FOR PUPS SO I JUST DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO THINK SO I WILL STAY WITH WHAT I KNOW AND THAT IS IVERMECTIN.. I HAVE USED DIFFERENT BRANDS (NOT JUST IVORMIC) AND I HAVE HAD GREAT SUCCESS.. I JUST MAKE SURE IT HAS THE IVERMECTIN IN THEM.. WHEN MY PUPS GO TO THE VET (OR MY DOGS) THE COME UP NEGATIVE FOR ANY WORMS (INCLUDING HEARTWORMS).. HOPE THIS HELPS??
OH, I FOR GOT OUR QUEEN OF THE HOUSE!!! SHE IS A MINIATURE SCHNAUZER AND IS 10 YEARS YOUNG AND HAS BEEN ON IVERMECTIN SINCE SHE WAS 8 WEEKS OLD.. UNLESS IT IS A DOG OR PUPPY I BRED I WOULD FIRST HAVE IT VET CHECKED.. ONCE AGAIN,, HOPE THIS HELPED
I am new here and came here to post a question about a skin problem I am having with my dog to see if anyone has ever had the same experience and I started browsing out of curiosity and came across this. All I can say is WOW. A lot of owners out there are obviously over-dosing their dogs on ivermectin tremendously. A 100 pound dog only needs not even a half of a milligram of ivermectin. 1 ml has 10 milligrams! 51-100 pounds gets .3 milligrams. At least the person who says it's .10ml per 100 pounds is way closer to the correct dose than the rest! Pretty risky mistake to make.
I hope u all can help me. I have a daschund pup she is 4 months old. A friend of mine suggested ivermectin b/c her mom uses it on her dogs that she breeds w/o amy problems, i purchased noromectin same ingredients as ivermection words on boxes were exactly the same.

Can any1help me out with dosage & also assure me that its alrite 2 use noromectin b/c she is just a pup? Thank u
