I started with Molly & Scar last night to see how they do on it. Weighed them and they both weigh 60 pounds so they each got .3 of a cc. Its been 24 hours and both are doing just fine.

Thanks again for all the advice everyone!

mommy2kane wrote:0.40cc is almost following the 1/10cc per 10 lbs, which I believe is too much. So I'd go with 0.20cc, IMO. My adults range from 40-55 lbs and I usually give approx 0.20cc.


Thanks thats what I thought as well.. but wanted to get input to make sure.

ivermectin

I have been hearing from a lot of people that it is much cheaper to give my dogs a small does of ivermectin every month than to have them all on the heartworm prevention. My questions are: 1. If there is somewhere online where I can but the ivermectin? 2. Do you just mix it in with food? 3. How do I...

We took her Saturday to ACT to check for a microchip.. and there was none. So we reported that we have her to AC. We dewor...
