The wormer contains 1.87% ivermectin which is equivalent to 18,700 micrograms/g of product or 149,600 micrograms of ivermectin in 8 grams. I might dose a dog suffering from mange at up to 600 micrograms/lb or 9000 micrograms for Lloyd. Lloyd has been life-threateningly overdosed and needs the attention of a vet at your earliest convenience. Decontamination procedures and supportive care are essential at this time. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
