A cc of 1% ivermectin (10 mg)? It's too late to induce emesis. Activated charcoal needs to be given by a vet and then critical central nervous system abnormalities need to be addressed in a hospital setting.

What should I do

Thank you. Even 5 mg is a significant overdose. It's 10X what I might give when addressing manges. Here's what I posted above: "It's too late to induce emesis.
