    Quote:I would think so, since the dose is given by weight.

    I believe it is 1ml per/22 pounds of body weight, given orally. Some Iver's say 1ml per/75 lb of body weight.....I have yet to figure out why or get an answer to that. [​IMG]

    I just seen the title again and it says you have ivermectin.


    There is ivo lines too.

    I wonder if the 5 % you give orally at 1 ml/cc per 75lbs and the 1 % solution at 1ml/cc per 22 lbs.

    I don't think the 5% means the for the active ingredient though....I am not sure what it means.

    I do know the 1 % solution is the active ingredient.

    I know several people who use the pour it on Ivermectin on their hogs but I can't get the dosage from them. I would love to be able to use it because I can't restrain the 350-400 lb sows to give them a shot.
