    I really need to worm my sick hen as soon as possible. I need to deworm her with a broad spectrum dewormer,

    I do have Ivermectin pour on for cattle, but the brand is durvet. I heard its not the best brand.
    Should I use it?
    Or what should I worm her with?
    What is the dosage?????

    Thank you all

    I already gave you the dose for Ivomec Eprinex. I suggest you use Google to determine whether the dose would be the same.

    Why are you worming a sick hen? A wormer is a pesticide and is hard on birds - I would never recommend any kind of worming for a sick animal unless it was certain that worms were actually causing the illness.
