|Amounts to be Administered and Administration Route To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. Cattle Ivermectin should be administered at a dosage rate of 200 *g per kg bodyweight (1 ml to 50 kg bodyweight). It should only be injected subcutaneously in front of or behind the shoulder using aseptic technique. A sterile 17 gauge x ½ inch needle is recommended. Sheep Administer only by subcutaneous injection in the neck at the recommended dosage level of 200 μg ivermectin per kg bodyweight using aseptic technique. Each ml contains 10 mg ivermectin to treat 50 kg of bodyweight. Swab the septum before removing each dose. Use a dry sterile needle and syringe. Administer subcutaneously only. Inject once under the loose skin in the neck. For the treatment and control of sheep scab (Psoroptes ovis) two injections with a seven day interval are required to treat clinical signs of scab and eliminate living mites. Use of a 17 gauge x ½ inch (15-20 mm) needle is suggested. Replace with a fresh sterile needle after every 10-12 animals. Injection of wet or dirty animals is not recommended. When treating sheep of less than 16 kg seek veterinary advice regarding the use of 1 ml disposable syringes graduated in increments of 0.1 ml. For the treatment of individual sheep a syringe not exceeding 2.0 ml and calibrated in increments of 0.1 ml should be used. Pigs Administer at a dosage rate of 300 µg per kg bodyweight (1 ml per 33 kg). The product should be injected subcutaneously into the neck using aseptic technique.

Symptomatic treatment may be beneficial. Pigs Ivermectin has a recognised wide safety margin and is known to be safe in all ages of swine. It has no adverse effects on fertility in sows or breeding performance of boars. Clinical signs of ivermectin toxicity in swine include tremors, bilateral mydriasis and recumbency with some biochemical abnormalities including a transient depression of serum iron. Such changes were only observed when ivermectin was administered subcutaneously at a dose of 30 mg/kg (100 times the normal therapeutic dose).
