Soilman wrote:About the horse paste...someone told me that it could be dangerous and is not recommended for dogs. The reason is, the medicine may not evenly dispursed throughout the paste. For horses, it doesn't matter because they get the whole tube at once. But for dogs, one month, the dog may not get enough of the actual med, they next, he might be overdosed. I don't know if this is true, but just passing along the info.

I calculated that the 50# horse dose is about 5x the ivomectin dosage in Heartgard. Studies have shown that 10x the dose in Heartgard does not cause problems in dogs. We haven't observed any negative effects on either of my dogs and my wife and I watch the dogs closely after each dosage. When I run out of this tube of Zimectrin Gold, I'll get another.
Hope this helps,
