    I know I read this on here somewhere but can't find it now.
    I read....you can use the Ivomec Injectable....3CC's to 1 gallon of water for 1 day, then re-do it again in 10 days. Can someone clarify this for me so I know I am not crazy????Thank you

    !cc per 10 pounds of body weight.
    That is oil base so it is not going to work well in water, it will just stick to the inside of your water container as the level goes down.
    Now safe guard for goats is mixed in the water 3cc per gallon and that is what most all of us here use.
    We use the other for lice and gap worm if they get them.
