That's why I would ask my vet first. I think mine told me Collies but not sure.
He approved use on German Sheperds, and 3 mutts that we have. No problems.
Mine are a big gorgeous (I know, I sound like a Mom) black lab and an adorable cutie pie island "mix".
The meds did not get here today.
My order was over $50.00, maybe that was it...? I got an e-mail response plus a phone message, went ahead and ordered. I saved $1.00 versus petmeds, but what the heck! My meds are FrontlinePlus flea and Tick 6-pack for cats. It helps, but sometimes they still wind up scratching way earlier than the full month's worth. (They are 2 indoor only cats) My order was confirmed yesterday, so I'll see if they get here in a similar amount of time. Thanks for the great site, and the Jefferspet folks said to say "HI" to us here in the V.I.
Bumping this up.
The last post on this was 10 months ago. Since then several people have commented about they're success with Ivermectin.
They're amazed to see that they finally have zero ticks.
I don't mean they say yea it works ok. They are like WOW! I can't believe how well that stuff works. Finally Tick free!
I was at a house a few weeks ago and the ticks were climbing the walls. They had one dog that had been treated and a yard that had been supposedly recently treated.
SkysThe Limit, Is the Ivermectin a !% formulation? Do you know the dose per body weight and the administration route? Ivermectin is Heartguard used to prevent heartworms in dogs. Thanks, Swan
Please consult Island Animal Clinic near 5 corners if you have a tick problem. Since the Ivermec will kill heartworms you need to ensure they are negative before administering. As for the route......squirt it right in the mouth.
Also,..some dog breeds it should not be used on.
If you read through the posts you'll see where some have found a supplier online.
Absolutely works like a charm. Your dogs will thank you.
