Some of my friend are using IVOMAC (INJECTION), in place of giving their pets (German Shepards, and Rotewilder), Heartworm Medication. What I want to know is, is this vaccine medication good for other small animals as long as you use the proper dosage per weight of the Pet. Also can it be given by mouth instead of injection, etc. My friend have been using IVOMAC for months at a time already and I have asked other Vet's. and some say yes it's OK and some say no only to sell you their products, etc. Please contact me asap and thanks in advance.
Ivermectin can be used in dogs and cats. It is a relatively safe medication and as long as it is given in the proper dose. Heartgard is ivermectin. It can be given orally and under the skin. Good luck, vetcare
