So, to close this review off... If you have scabies, do nothing else but order this inexpensive product and get your sanity and life back as fast as humanly possible within just days with this inexpensive, quick to receive product. Side effects: NONE, except actually finally getting rid of scabies.
This product can be used to deworm dogs just like Heartgard provided you dilute it properly. I'd rather buy this versus the 50 ml of 1% Ivermectin because with only one dog there's no way I'd ever get through that in a lifetime! Here is how to dilute this product for safe use on your dog. I'll show my work as well so you can double check it and verify that this is the safe and correct dosage! I see many people in these reviews using a half or full click of the paste which is FAR too high a dose and cannnot be good for your dog long term! In addition to the fact that you're just wasting money by overdosing.
The recommended Ivermectin dosage for dogs is 2.72 mcg/lb, which is what you'll find in the name brand medications like Heartgard. 1.87% Ivermectin= 1.87 gram/100 ml= 18.7 mg/ml= 18,700 mcg/ml. Let's create solution that contains 1,000 mcg/ml; this concentration is easy to work with for large dogs- you will need to dilute it more if you have a small dog less than 20 lbs in order to be able to measure accurately; please ask if you need those measurements and I am happy to do them for you!
I used 60 ml distilled water which I will add the Ivermectin to for the dilution. Note that 1% Ivermectin cannot be diluted with water, however, this paste is water soluable. This volume of water is easily measured with 3 ml blunt tip syringes with needles, which I also purchased here on Amazon ($9 for 10). I will need to add 3.4 ml of the paste to my 60 ml water. Measure the paste with a 1 ml syringe -very- slowly to avoid sucking up bubbles, which decrease your dosage. You can also buy these syringes cheaply on Amazon; I got mine free at my Pharmacy. The paste is too thick to measure with a needle, and I found the 3 ml syringe more challenging. Quick math check: 3.4 ml x 18,700 mcg/ml= 63,580 mcg Ivermectin. 63,580 mcg/63.4 ml= ~1000 mcg/ml. When you add this paste to the water it will turn milky; store in a glass container at room temp in a dark place (per label instructions); label with expiration date (found on box) and dosage so you won't forget! Be sure to shake well before measuring as it will settle when stored.
With this dilution, the dosage would be .0272 ml per 10 lbs of dog; you can safely double that for extra protection, but I wouldn't do more than that. For my dog I can measure this amount with a 1 ml syringe and dab it on some bread for her to eat. If your dog is picky you can take the needle off the 3 ml syringe and put it on the 1 ml and inject the solution into a piece of hot dog to more easily mask the taste. Also remember that Ivermectin is not safe for use on Collies, Collie mixes, and other herding breeds. My dog has used Heartgard previously with no problems; I highly recommend doing this first with your vet to make sure its safe on your dog. I hope this helps! Done correctly this is a safe and extremely affordable way to protect your dog from heartworm; I know this sounds like a lot of work, but it's fairly simple and will last you until the expiration date (about 2 years for mine) even if you have several large dogs. This diluted solution has enough Ivermectin to treat 23,000 POUNDS of dog! Now do you see how horrifying it is to use a full or even half click of raw paste? And we didn't even use the full tube :)
Please feel free to ask questions if any of this is confusing; I am NOT a vet, but I am happy to help! I am a recent biochem grad with a lot of lab experience, which helped me know how to make these calculations and measurements!
