    Two cc's of Ivomec is way too much and could be lethal! Do you have the pour on or injectable?

    I was doing 1ml once a day only because that was the info I could find. Definitely not correct lol. Should I start 1.5 morning and night?

    I have the injectable. I give it to my pot belly pig orally though. Would .5 be better? I know Ivermectin is generally a safe de wormer but I definitely do not want to overdose her.

    Can you get some Safeguard or Panacur from your farm vet friend? Paste or liquid is fine. If so, ask them for 10ml of either the paste or the liquid.

    A tetracycline might work, but might not. Many bacteria are now resistant to it.

    Picking an antibiotic is not easy.

    I'd say she weighs between 4 and 5lbs. My other Pekin hen probably weighs close to 8. She's much larger than the puzzle girl all around though. I will definitely ask about the pancur when I call her later.

    No it's not especially because animals and humans alike have been so heavily medicated in the past years. That's why I really want something that can be dosed only to her. If the rest don't need it, I don't want them to have it, you know?
