    I was at the feed store looking for Ivermectin pour on and the staff there told me to use the injectable in the same way. I never heard that before, so I was wondering if anyone has done that? I thought Ivermectin pour on was oil based so it absorbed into the skin? I'm treating for mites, and I haven't wormed my girls so I thougth I could just do it all at once. I bought the injectable kind, so I'd like to use it instead of tossing it. I know i could mix it with water but I'm really interested in seeing if the injectable could be used as a pour on... anyone?
