Who else uses Ivomec and how much do you use? I was told a tenth of a cc per 10 lbs of weight so I give him a little less than 1 cc, he was between 90-100 lbs depending ion the time of the year. According to that site they recommend a third of that, please tell me a tenth for 10 lbs is correct and I am not killing my dog?
Had him at the vet two weeks ago, checked out fine besides biting the vet. I wasnt there however. Had him on what the vet recommended and he got heart worms, cost me a arm and a leg for the treatment, thats why I switched to ivomec. I know tons of guys who use it with no problems.
Look I'm not a specialist but if I have a fun loving friendly clipped 4 yo lab that goes bat shite crazy when I give him poison I'm going to quit giving it to him. It's either making him sick or messin him up in the head. There are other options. If you've considered getting rid of him then surely you'll consider switching his heart worm medicine.
I ask that because I took our cat to the vet about ten years ago and the cat bit through the thick animal handling gloves and drew blood from the vet. This was just the examination. Vet said we couldn't bring the cat back. This was a completely domesticated cat that sleeps right beside my head every night. She don't take nothing off people.

You are correct on the ivomec dosing, it's 0.1 cc per 10 lbs. You really have to dose the hell out of them for it to bother them, I had two beagles with the red mange, gave each one a half cc everyday for a month, cured it and no side effects. I've had all kinds of dogs on ivomec from beagles to American bulldogs and never had a problem with it. In the end it is a dog that is biting you...may be time to go cootkillah on it.
