    Went to buy it.....too many choices. So, do I buy the one for cattle, sheep or horses? What device do I use to administer it with?

    I use Ivermec for cattle and use an eye dropper to place the drops directly on the skin.

    You can purchase Ivomec eprinex pour on for cattle, I just bought a 250ml bottle for a reasonable price. It has no withdrawal period. You'll need a syringe or eyedropper to administer it.

    Do a search on BYC for worming and threehorses. There's a great thread where Threehorses gives the dosage calculations for the cattle/pour-on type of ivermectin.
