    IVM and fertility

Given the difficulty of getting a prescription for IVM in Australia here, I’ve acquired some equine paste. First time I’ve ever heard of a connection between IVM and fertility. Does anyone have any more info??

Not sure I’ll be able to convince my fiancée to take it with that warming written on the box…

Hi Mark,

I’m not sure about the warning labels but I’m from Australia and would love to know how to source some!

 

Cheers

Well, isn’t that weird? Is it printed on the box, or is it a sticker? Why would that warning be prominently displayed on a product clearly for horses? Something whiffy here.

I have Equimec brand, bought online from vet’n’pet direct.com  Nothing like that on the packaging. I also have Starmec injectable ivm from farmers mailbox.com Also no strange warnings there either.

Lol, just buy another brand….

Yeah, looks to be part of the campaign not to use it. It’s clearly labeled for horses yet there are dire, scary warnings about human babies? It’s designed to steer people away from it. All propaganda.

If there was a fertility issue it would have shown up in those billions of animal studies we’ve been doing on horses, cows, dogs and sheep for the past several decades.   Farmers wouldn’t use this if there were a fertility issue and dairy farmers would be banned from using it I would think.

Monomoy Girl is a mare, the most expensive horse sold at public auction in 2020, for $9.5 million.  Why would someone pay $9.5 million for a horse?  So that horse can make baby horses like Hip 132 ($1.4 million).  These horses are given the same IVM as the glue horse at your local animal shelter.  If there was cause for concern of fertility problems, I’m pretty sure that several parties would be interested, not the least of which would be the insurance company of the horse owner.

general disclaimer – perhaps propaganda.

I should have mentioned, when I went to Farmcraft to buy it, they said that this is a new product, with only Ivermectin (other products have more than one ingredient). Could it possibly have been created just to meet the increased demand?

Luckily I’m from a farming background and could easily pretend I was getting it for my horses…

Maybe it is a different ingredient?

If only the warnings for the vaccine had the same level of caution.

I’d skip it and get the pills if you can

If it’s Bimectin paste made by Bimeda, it’s been around for a while, at least in Canada. Nothing stuck onto the box saying it affects fertility.
