    Ok. I have in my hand a box of injectable ivermectin.

    Each ml contains 10mg of ivermectin. (This is starting to sound like a grade 7 math question, isn't it? LOL!) [​IMG]

    I know I can use it in drops on their skin or drop it in their water (although I have very different sized birds so water won't work)

    I have looked on many many threads and still can't see the dosage I'm supposed to use.

    HELP????? [​IMG]

    I have in my hand 'pour on ivermectin' and it says 1 ml per 22 lbs of animal.
    for a LF that's about a quarter ml per bird. Maybe 2 or 3 drops from a syringe.

    How many mg/ml is your pour on? If it's the same as mine, I'll use .25ml for my standards.

    Thanks so much for the reply!

    So if mine is 10mg/ml, then I should probably be using just 1 needle drop between the shoulder blades for my seabrights and bantams, 2 for my smaller standards and 3 for my large standard...

    Man I hate guesswork

    The pour on shouldn't be added to water; it is oil-based. You use the injectable in the water. I found that somewhere else in a post
