    Bumping to top. I am doing my annual shots today.
    Just thought Id bump this up on "new posts" button....as a reminder...and as good reading for new comers.

    Im going to try to seek a "wormer" thread that I feel is good and bump it up ever 15th of months.
    Try to be helpful and keep up on shit.

    Last winter I did not give the fenbendazole. And noticed that after feeding some raw deer...that one dog had a couple dead worms last month after no wormer during winter....note to self...do it all year..it aint costing much now....

    Man, i got a new one we picked up yesterday, the fellar uses a Goat Wormer and of course Ivomec. He handed me the bottles to look at yesterday and that Goat Wormer consisted of fenbendazole, how many CC's should i use on a puppy? I know it's probably weight dependent and this pup is ready for a round of wormer and a 7 in 1.

    Same as the goat. Size wise it should already state the ml per weight on the bottle. Do it for 3 days.

    I use safe guard for goats myself. Its the same shit labled for dogs it just costs a fraction of what the dog version does because its labeled for livestock and not someones couch denter. Most pet owners won't normally take the time to figure out active ingredients so the companies get away with taxing them 10x over, and they'll pay it without complaint. The saying is very true and these companies know it,

    A fool and his money will soon be parted.

    Id recommend anyone who dont have one to get the Pit Bull Bible. Will pay for iteslf just in the savings part of the book.

    So run it 3 days in a row but then should i hit them again in 2 weeks with a follow up? Thank btw, appreciate the help.

    Yes, 3 days in a row. I worm mine as pups at 6, 8, 12 and 16 weeks then its unlikely I'll do it again unless theres a reason to other than maybe every few months for prevention unless I see signs it's necessary or i have a litter on the ground. Getting a fecal float is cheaper than constantly worming and if theres no reason to, i prefer to not give meds. You can worm with safe guard pretty much as much as you want bro. Leathal dose is ridiculously high.

    Definitely agree with the bible. It is a great book filled with useful info.

    That's no way a vouch for Cali jack or saying it' even his actual work. But none the less a great collection of useful tips

    Same as I use. Very cost effective
    I was told to use the increment or dosage per lb. On bottle.
    I think near a ml per 50lbs.
    1.2 ml if not mistaken.
    I adjust a bit for sampler ones.

    That is what I use. Safe guard brand.
    And the Ivermec(black label with horned bull)

    Im not sure on the cc conversion..may be a tenth.

    That is how I do the Ivermectin.
    .1 cc per 10 lb..
    Is it 10 cc per ml??

    I think the Pups get the 5 available..when i started giving shots..it was a 3 way..which no longer available...5..7..9..and 10.
    And i use an easier wormer the 1st time for pups...happy jacks..then hit em with the fenbendazole next.

    Yeah i totally agree on how often you worm and i do my pups the same, every 2 weeks until they are 8 weeks and then spread it out to every 4, i even do that with the 7 in 1's. I was thinking only my outside dogs might get hit more often and maybe every 2 months instead of 3 when the weather breaks and warms up or if like you said there is a reason for it.
  12. pitbulld0gs

    pitbulld0gs Top Dog Staff Member

    Yeah, it's 1.2 on the bottle and i think 1cc = 1ml, i could be wrong though. i know with the ivomec it's .1 per 10 pounds so a 50 pound dog would get .5 cc's or .5 ml. We also use the easy stuff but after my buddy hipped me to the goat wormer i am def switching.

    Does everyone usually use intravenous when hitting them with Ivomec? or do you squirt it in their mouth? im curios if you can use the intravenous orally instead? We use the same bottle McCoy is talking about and it says intravenous but i know a few guys who just squirt it down there throats?

    Cool, i wanted to ask and make sure as sometimes people think they are doing the right thing because they seen other people do it, which doesn't mean it's ok lol. I wasn't sure if the stomach would absorb it like it should V.S intravenous.

    It' how I was taught. Works for us.

    We do give some intermuscularly in horribke cases of babesia(I haven't but ppl I know have). Otherwise it's the 1/10 a cc per 10lbs orally.

    That sounds the same as I was instructed.
    I did some initial research when I switched to the Ivermec and I just remember the .11c per 10#..
    The mark after .9 on my syringe is wore off..but I think it was .10cc and 1 ml are equal.
    The decimal point was the thing to watch.
    .1cc..... And 1cc are different.

    I give over food. I know 1 person who injects. Says no issues. A heartworm check is recommended prior obviously.

    The goat wormer(fenbendazole)....for sure..best bang for buck. In combination with Ivermec should cover you.
    I am also going to use the apple cider stuff.
