Postby Lillypod » Wed Jul 31, 2013 8:50 pm

If this is for mites then just put it in a spray bottle and spray them lightly with it. Make sure you dilute it as directed.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Its usually 0,3 mg/kg and u can also put a drop behind ear or on back of neck. It is a very small amount that you need to use as is usually a 1% solution, so 10 mg per ml. You can also use revolution (selamectin) 0,01ml per 100g of the 60mg/ml solution. Draw it up in an insulin syringe and apply to back of neck if only a few animals need to be treated, but wouldn't use revolution if it is feeder animals you are going to treat. It can be bought from any vet and in smaller volumes than buying a whole bottle of ivermectin
