    I noticed my tom turkey seems to be struggling to inhale??? Any ideas?? He seems fine in himself, eyes and nostril clear etc. Also what is the dosage of safeguard for worming turkeys? Anyone use Ivermectin pour on for mite control? If so, what dose is that also? many thanks

    Is your tom better, or is the `wheezing'? on inhalation continuing?

    Have used Eprinex Cattle pour-on for external parastites (.5-.75 cc on skin - upper middle of back).

    I'm sure someone will chime in on the Safeguard dosage (don't use it, myself). If not, use the advanced search function (text - safeguard/posts only/click search button at bottom of page).
