    I have already used Wazine and am now ready to deworm my hens using Ivermectin.

    I have read in previous posts to get the 5% blue pour-on but my local TSC doesn't have that (I don't think). Here is what they have:

    Iver-On
    Ivermectin Pour -On for Cattle
    Countains: 5mg ivermectin/mL

    Is this the same as the 5%?? Can I use this and if so, do I still follow standard procedures of .5cc for large hens?

    Thanks for any help!

    Yes for cattle will work
    Back of neck on bare skin
    .5cc standard again in 2 weeks
    .25cc banty again in 2 weeks
    1/4cc birds under 20 weeks repeat 7-10 days later
    Or with eye droper same as above repeat in 2 weeks
    small 4 drops
    med 6 drops
    large 8 drops
    After the 2 weeks I just re-apply as stated on bottle, this seems to work fine for mine.

    Repeat in two weeks even if I have recently used Wazine?

    No. The Wazine once, and 2 weeks later do the Ivermectin. Done. (Meaning you don't need to do the Ivermectin a second time, in another 2 weeks.)​
