What dosing do I need? I have two six month old peahens. Have Ivermectin (1% cattle/swine injectable) and want to mix in water. I have checked "Peafowl" threads and several of the worming threads. Still confused....Would appreciate your thoughts on the dosing numbers. Thanks

Hi there! We pull all water for about 12 hours before dosing, so they are good and thirsty. We use 3cc/3ml, of ivermectin per gallon of water. Leave this down for 2 days and then repeat it all again in 10 days. Others may do ivermectin differently, but this seems to work for us. We do ivermectin maybe once a year and then use fenbendazole(safeguard cattle) 2-3 times, because it is also effective and costs less than ivermectin. Hope this helps. Smile

Which Ivermectin do you put in the water? The injectable or the pour on? Thanks

Keep in mind, ivermectin does not readily dissolve in water. I normally place a few drops on the skin of wing web or the underside of the wing. It is absorbed in that manner. Your liquid fenbendazol will definitely mix in a water solution as well as tylan Smile

Happy Health !!!
