    I have a couple turkeys that we rescued that need to treat for advanced scaly leg mites. First we're planning on dipping their legs in warm soapy water and would like to try the Ivermectin on them. Anyone had success with it and what is the dosage? I searched online and saw that I could purchase it without a Vet's prescription.
    We were also thinking of trying NuStock but it's only in a small 11oz tube
    We need help ASAP.
    Thanks in Advance!!!

    I remember a discussion about this in a demonstration and the person giving the demonstration said that it worked. Scaly leg mites die rather fast and to get the scales down you can use bag balm.
