I was reading up on mange because my puppy started losing fur around her eye. I was told that 1% ivomec solution could clear it up. I was told by the vet that it's considered "localized" and would probably go away on it's own but I can't just do nothing so I want to do some sort of treatment.
He wanted to charge about $500 for mitaban dips but I just don't want to pay that much if I don't have to.
While reading I found out about ivomec, my vet wont tell me anything about it. He is one of those try to make every last dollar sort of vets (Banfield) but im stuck there for at least a year because I did one of their pet plans for regular vaccines.
Anyhow, I'm looking for a new vet so don't worry! I'm not going to stick with Banfield.
Anyway, I bought this exact stuff:
I got it at a feed store for about $40. Now, i've never used it but i'm doing my research. I would love to be able to use this for heartworm prevention as well as clearing up this mange. Does anyone else use it? Would anyone be able to give me some tips on typical dosage, etc...
Also can the injection formula be given orally or does it have to be injected? I've read mixed things on this. Thanks!
Oh also my puppy isn't a hearding breed if that's any concern.
