Ivomec for puppy?

Post by gdog » Sat Jul 02, 2011 10:09 am

Can u start Ivomec on 8 week old puppy? Going with 1/10 cc per 20lbs. Pups not 20lbs yet, but I believe the 1/10cc will be safe?

They dispense Heartgard and Iverhart at that age. We've been suggesting Iverhart Max, which covers tapeworms, roundworms and hookworms and keeps you from having to continue puppy wormer. If you are DIY with an ivermectin product, puppy mg/lb is the same as adult, just base it on weight.

Yes you can start an 8 wk puppy on Ivermectin.I usually start mine before they reach 3 mos of age.

Huh?

In regards to dose...I've seen a lot go with 1/10 per 10lbs, but also have read that 1/10 per 20lbs is still more then adequate.

For a pup I would dilute with PG 30 to 1.

Like Ted said, start them around 3 months and dose the same way and amount per lb.that you do adults.

I start my pups at 6 weeks old with 1/10th cc right from the bottle this will also cover other worms like round worms which the nemex or other wormers may not have fully taken care of

Is a puppy born with immunity to heartworm disease?

answer No, even nursing puppies are at risk for heartworm infection. Puppies of any age exposed to mosquitoes carrying infective larvae can become heartworm-infected, so it is important to begin prevention early. Puppies can be started on heartworm preventive as early as four to eight weeks of age, depending on the label recommendations of the preventive.

Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
