Dosage

I was told by my Vet to give 1/10 of a CC for each 10 pounds of body weight.....so a 50 pound dog would get a half CC.

I’ve heard the same thing…
.5 cc’s for a 50 lb. dog…I been giving 1 cc every month on 50-60 lb. dogs since the 1980’s without issues…
I’ve also heard that heart worms are getting immune to the heart worm prevention meds…probably because giving too mild a treatment…

1/10th of 1cc would be .1cc. A 50lb. dog would get 1/2 cc or .5 cc. I’ve used this dosage for over 30 years with no issues.

Here’s something to think about…from the time a mosquito infects a dog until the larvae matures into a heart worm is 6 month…I’ve used this knowledge in my favor for years without issues…

The parvovirus has not mutated so I use that knowledge in my favor as well…

Same here....giving it over 30 years & never the first issue & never had a dog get Heart Worms.
I used to give 1 CC & my Vet said it won't hurt a dog to give a little too much but said you are just wasting it because it won't do any better than the .5 CC.
It's Good stuff.

I sat down years ago and figured out the correct dosage rate per the pills from the vet. The microfillia are very susceptible to ivermectin so 0.10cc per 76 lbs. works as a heart worm preventive. Ivermectin is also very nontoxic at low dosage for MOST dogs so even 1 cc per month should not cause a problem.

I use 0.3 cc each dog.

Might as well use water for the good it does in my area
Give it 2 times a month and dogs still get heartworms

So what are you using for prevention? And general location? Give a little history. And any answers to the why doesn't Ivermec work.

Help educate the rest of us to prevent heartworm.

Like Reuben I use the time period to hopefully have a successful worming program.
April thru November is Ivomec @ 6/10s cc mixed on Contance of a pedigree pouch on a paper plate. Takes less than a minute and plate is licked clean.
December & January is a complete wormer to get any tapes.
February 6/10 cc Ivermec.
March complete wormer again for a clean up.
I'm always interested in what others are doing. Like to improve if I can. Last check at the vet was all clear. All 6 are outside hounds.

From what I’ve read in past articles many are afraid to overdose a dog with Ivomec (ivermectin) and I believe some of the wormer pills that contain ivermectin could be causing the heart worms to build an immunity against it…that is my opinion on the possibility…

Pro heart shot
Southeast Missouri
Twice a month ivomec year round still didn’t keep beagles and coo hounds from getting heartworms

JHayes…

How much ivomec were you giving every two weeks per body weight for each dog as heart worm prevention?

Someone from Arkansas posted the same thing a few months ago. I spoke to my vet, and he has not seen any evidence of that in this area.

My vet has told me that for years
Almost all dogs from this area will at minimum test a light positive on Ivomecterin only even at 2 times a month.
Years ago we used to mix the ivomec in a 1:9 ratio
But that didn’t work at all

I usually buy the paste…
The tube treats a 1,200 lb. horse…
The active ingredient is 1.87 percent compared to the liquid which has 1 percent…
The generic brands sell for a lot less…here lately the prices have gone up quite a bit…
