Ivomec Injection for Cattle, Sheep and Swine Dosage And Administration:
IVOMEC Injection should be given only by subcutaneous injection at the recommended dosage level of 200 µg of ivermectin per kg of body weight. Each mL contains 10 mg of ivermectin, sufficient to treat 50 kg of body weight (maximum 10 mL per injection site).
IVOMEC Injection should be given subcutaneously only. Inject under the loose skin in front of or behind the shoulder. Use of a 16 gauge, 15 to 20 mm (3/4 inch) needle is suggested. Use sterile equipment.
The recommended dose level is 1 mL of IVOMEC Injection per 50 kg of body weight (200 µg of ivermectin per kg). The recommended route of administration is by subcutaneous injection. The solution may be given with any standard automatic or single-dose equipment. Use sterile equipment.
The loose skin behind the shoulder is an acceptable site. In woolly sheep, be certain that the needle has penetrated the wool and skin before delivering the dose.
The recommended dose level is 1 mL of IVOMEC Injection per 33 kg of body weight (300 µg of ivermectin per kg of body weight). The recommended route of administration is by subcutaneous injection in the neck. The solution may be given with any standard automatic or single-dose equipment. In young pigs, especially those below 16 kg for which less than 0.5 mL of IVOMEC Injection is indicated, dosing accuracy is important.
