I dose the 1% ivermectin injectable solution at 0.4 mg/kg once daily orally for 2-4 months when addressing demodicosis.. A 35 lb (15.9 kg) dog, then, would receive 6 mg. There's 10 mg/mL of ivermectin in a 1% solution and so 6 mg would represent 0.6 mL once daily. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
