Is Dectomax (doramectin) safe for Peafowl?

Hi everyone, I've been reading a lot of old posts about treatment of lice and mites in peafowls with ivomec (ivermectin). I can't find ivermectin where I live, but I have Dectomax (doramectin), injectable 1%.

Is it safe for peafowls to use doramectin instead of ivermectin? Any personal experience? I haven't been able to find anything online.
I was also thinking of using the Dectomax has a pour on solution, instead of injecting it... any thoughts?

It's probably fine. The injectable can be given orally, so that's what I would do.
