Ivermectin Prophylaxis Protocol
In the Meta-analysis batch of studies the prophylaxis protocol is 200 mcg/ kg of body weight administered on day one and day 3 and then once a month after that.
On another post there is a protocol to dose once a week.
Since I am doing the first protocol ….I would welcome discussion, and clarification. Today is day 3 for me. So far zero side effects.
So…not to change the subject too much but it seems to fit here and has not been mentioned anywhere on PP so far regarding Mectiniver:
In this animal application, similar small amounts (diluted in poisonous chemicals) as recommended for ingestion are applied to cattle skin along the top of the spinal cord. The results for internal parasites are suggested as similar as for oral administration of the oral product.
The safety sheet for this has isopropyl alcohol and Triethanolamine in addition to Mectiniver. Isopropyl alcohol is definitely poisonous internally, and the triethanolanine is also (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triethanolamine#Cosmetics_and_medicine). So this would be deadly taken internally. But it is made for mammal skin application and that would be the only human use.
So just bringing this up as another source of Mectiniver and requesting comments from any of the ranchers here who have used it.
I am of course wondering what precautions I should take if I choose to apply it to the skin of my cattle.
Hello, May i ask “oliveoilguy” are you using paste or pill? Reading a tube of paste and entire tube is 7.2 grams , any guidance on dosage?
I have used the pour on in a hand pump garden sprayer to cure lice issues in cattle. That was years ago and now have genetics that need no antithelmintic.
Dosing Ivermectin Paste,
The horse and human “standard doses” are the same on a mg/Kg basis: 0.2 mg of ivermectin per Kg of the animal’s body weight. (A 100 Kg animal would take 20 mg of ivermectin orally.) The paste sold in the USA for horses comes in a syringe calibrated in pounds and designed to be dispensed based on the horses body weight in pounds.
But, you don’t have to do any math to dispense the right dose of the paste.
The ivermectin paste comes in a syringe with a plunger. The plunger is marked by large lines indicating 250# increments (250, 500, 750, 1,000,1250) with smaller notches each indicating 50 pounds. Twist the “stop” into place on the plunger handle at the mark that corresponds with the animals total body weight. When the plunger is depressed to the stop, the correct amount of paste is extruded for that sized animal.
To get a second dose from the same syringe, you will have to do a bit of arithmetic to set the stop at the next correct weight marker, so I guess there is a little bit of math required.
I have the injectable. Do you know can I take this orally and with say applesauce? Thank.
I have also started ivermectin. Does anyone know whether the niacin flush would impact efficacy/delivery of the ivermectin? Wouldn’t think so but thought I’d ask. Drugs.com shows no major interactions with ivermectin. I’ve had no side effects from pills taken.
Family and friends are still skeptical of Ivermectin even with studies/protocols I’ve sent them. I’ve offered them free doses but no takers(yet). People (including medical professionals) are being held hostage by our government, scientific community, big pharma, and the propagandist “media” Total insanity.

Having some question about a possible serious exposure, we have taken our 2 doses of Ivermectin using exactly that system. Foolproof. In my opinion, a very neutral flavor, but disappointingly weaker than expected on the apple flavor.
After second dose, Monday, still no negative side effects except we both noticed unusual abdominal gas. No big deal, and perhaps not due to the Ivermectin but to the homemade split pea soup we ate two days in a row…
A positive side effect: for a decade I have had head and face skin on the constant edge of irritation. Potential for eczema barely kept under management. That’s gone. I hadn’t realized how “on the edge” I always felt until I no longer did.
We initially bought 3 syringes. We’ve barely broken into one, but have ordered another 3 for our emergency medical stash (to keep ahead of supply disruptions or government restrictions).
Is the Durvet manufactured in USA? My saddlery has both a generic and the Durvet. The generic is $2 cheaper a syringe. However, if Durvet is manufactured in the USA, I would pay the premium for that.
Hi all! I have MS & while having some Ivermectin eased my anxiety, I found this posted on an MS Science Blog about why we (MSers) should reconsider b4 using it. I’m putting this out there for all who care to peruse it & am curious what you all think about it. I know how I feel & am still glad to have my apple flavored goo.
Thanks all & be well!
