He seems fine. He had mange as a puppy, a very bad case, and gets ivermectin shots every other month. So we know that he is not allergic to Ivermectin

Please give me a few minutes to calculate the toxic dose and type your answer. Thank you

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 2 months ago.

Friend, based on his weight he took a dose of ivermectin of 0.03mg/kg, this will not be toxic for him; no symptoms expected he will be fine.
