That's nearly twice the strength used for dogs.
Ivermectin guidelines for canines is 1% solution of Ivomec at 1/10th cc per 10 lbs
This might be helpful for supplies
Most importantly, be sure to get the HW check.
No, it would just be less of the 1.87% . The % is the concentration of Ivermectin in solution - the dosage cc's is the amount of med per lb or kg that an animal needs. You can change the amount of cc's, but need the 1% solution for canine treatment.
These days it's not unusual for help to be necessary, so there's places you can look into if you need to (if you don't need this list, pass it on to someone you think might ok?)
American Animal Hospital Association http://www.aahahelpingpets.org/home Veterinary care for sick or injured pets if abandoned or if their owner is experiencing financial hardship. Angels 4 Animals http://www.angels4animals.org/ Services range from financial aid to complete treatment. Care Credit http://www.carecredit.com/ A credit card company for health care, including veterinary care. God's Creatures Ministry http://www.all-creatures.org/gcm/help-cf.html Financial help for those in need Help-A-Pet http://www.help-a-pet.org/home.html Efforts focus on serving the elderly, the disabled, and the working poor.
Also, call your local Humane Society for options and low cost clinics. If you have a Pet Smart or PetCo in the area, they usually have rescue organizations working through them (not a part of them) and they may be able to provide some help.
No, not at all (no payment or benefit whatsoever for the links) - they're just some I've found along the way and feel are helpful.
I totally agree with the inflation of prices for Rx's in both animal and human care. If you can find a Canadian or European pharmacy that will issue supplies to the US it may be considerably less.
Of course finding a sympathizing vet who will let you purchase the meds at their own cost is the ideal solution and some are very cooperative, but of course, not all.
I'm really on your side here. Keep in mind that you can re open this question anytime to follow up and you do not have to press "accept" again - so no more payment necessary.
Please let me know how you do and if you find a better supplier, I'd like to be able to share it with others when the need arises.
