    I want to make sure I have this right. I have ivomec injectible 1% ivermectin- NOT EPRINEX.
    Eprinex seems to be 1 ml [or 1 cc] per 22 lbs of bird
    Ivomec injectable seems to be 1 cc per 75 lb swine or 110 lb cattle.
    What would the dosage be of IVOMEC INJECTIBLE for birds? Thanks

    Hope this helps:
    Ivermectin is effective against a large variety of worms and works also against mites. You can place a drop of the oil based medication on the skin behind the neck, or administer orally: Give 7 drops orally to a bantam and 0.25cc to a large chicken. If you put it in their waterer, use 6 cc / gallon for 2 days and to treat for worms, repeat in 12 days. To inject, give subcutaneously as follows: Little bantams (rosecombs, golden seabrights: 0.5cc. Brahmas, Silkies, Orpingtons: 1.0 cc. Standards: 1.5 cc. Jersey Giants: 2cc

    ???

    Just one drop on the skin but 7 (or more drops) orally e.t.c? Does that work? Can I ask that where did you get the dosages? From a Veterinarian? Do you have to wait two weeks until you can eat their eggs in every case?

    THANKS!

    <<Give 7 drops orally to a bantam and 0.25cc to a large chicken>>


    Ivomec 1% injectable OR Eprinex Ivermectin?

    Yes, the 1% Ivomect injectable. Sorry, I meant to paste the link with the post.

    I bookmarked that link quite a while ago and those are the dosages I use when I worm new chickens. I prefer to apply it to the back of the neck at night when they are roosting.
