Vetrimec IVM paste
Hello PP Tribe,
Has anyone used the Vetrimec paste to treat a horse with ‘long haul’ COVID in the form of heightened anxiety and neurological issues? It appears like there aren’t any other active ingredients beside IVM that could cause my sensitive animal any problems. But I’ve not seen any mentions of the particular product in forum and google pivots and I am concerned about the foreboding legal statements. Just wanted to get some eyes on it before consideration.
I really appreciate Chris and this community. It has been a beacon of sanity and critical thought during these difficult times
edarmati, I’m not familiar with that brand. Some of what is on the market is relabelled (like Durmectin is really Bimectin). I have learned enough about generics to know it can be a crapshoot whether it’s a human or veterinary formulation. My opinion is that the worst that is likely to happen is it doesn’t work. In other words, worth trying, if you decided ivermectin was worth pursuing. Certainly monitor any reaction to it. Good luck!
edarmati, When I went to your first link, I saw this notice right below the price:
This product is currently unavailable for purchase.
Chewy.com sells Durvet at a reasonable price. They too are currently out of stock, but do give you the option to be notified by email when it comes back in stock. You might want to check several times a day because minutes after it becomes available, it sells out.
