Ivermectin dosing...one more time

phurst1959June 25, 2011

OK, just call me dense. Math is NOT my strong suit. If I mix 50ml 1% injectible Ivermectin with 450ml propylene glycol does that make my dose 1.0ml per 10 lbs. body weight? That is the mix ratio and dose I used for years for my boxer based on information given me by a pharmacist, a vet, and the kennel master at a local hunting plantation. Someone PLEASE make this simple for me. Thanks.

25 lbs, 80 lbs, and a growing Lab puppy whose weight is changing weekly. PLEASE, just tell me if my mix ratio and dosing is correct. That is all I want to know. I don't mean to be curt, but I can't seem to get a straight yes or no answer from anyone and I am becoming VERY frustrated. Everyone wants to give me "take this times this then divide by this, but if they are this, then do this, etc." kind of answers. The vet I used for years has passed away and the people who have taken over the practice won't even discuss this with me. The kennel master has retired and moved, and the pharmacist has also sold out. I don't mean to seem ungrateful, but I just want a simple, to the point, kindergarten level answer. Thank you so much for even replying.
