Just think about the recommended dosage of using Ivomec. It is 1/10 CC for every 10 pounds. A 50 pound hound uses 5/10 CC or 1/2 CC of Ivomec. Now stop and think just how many doses you get out of a bottle of Ivomec at 50 ml. A ml is equal to a CC. For a 50 pound hound that would mean you get 100 doses. That figures to a cost of $00.75/dose. That is pretty darn cheap and it is much much more safe than using the horse ivermectin paste.
All correct info, however, ivermectin doesn't kill tapes. The Zimectrin GOLD does. It must be the GOLD though. Typically, I use Ivermectin on a monthly basis. Once a quarter, I give Gold instead of the regular Ivermectin. It works great. My hounds stay healthy.
