Parasitic diseases are common in animals. Parasites can affect the skin, ears, stomach and intestines, and the internal organs including the heart, lungs and liver. Several drugs have been developed to kill or prevent parasites such as fleas, ticks, mites and worms. Ivermectin and related drugs are among the most effective of these.
Ivermectin is a parasite control drug. Ivermectin causes neurologic damage to the parasite, resulting in paralysis and death. Ivermectin has been used to prevent parasite infections, as with heartworm prevention, and to treat infections, as with ear mites.
Ivermectin is a prescription drug and can only be obtained from a veterinarian or by prescription from a veterinarian.
The injection is mainly applied to treat domestic animal’s diseases of gastrointestinal nematodes, hypoderma bovis, hypoderma lineatum, sheep nose bot, psoroptes ovis, sarcoptes scabiei var. Suis,sarcoptes ovis, fasciola(Liver Fluke), oestrus spp and the like.

Medication should never be administered without first consulting your veterinarian. The dose for ivermectin varies from species to species and also depends on the intent of treatment. General dosing guidelines follow.
For dogs: Dose is 0.0015 to 0.003 mg per pound (0.003 to 0.006 mg/kg) once a month for heartworm prevention; 0.15 mg per pound (0.3 mg/kg) once, then repeat in 14 days for skin parasites; and 0.1 mg per pound (0.2 mg/kg) once for gastrointestinal parasites.
For cats: Dose is 0.012 mg per pound (0.024 mg/kg) once monthly for heartworm prevention.
The duration of administration depends on the condition being treated, response to the medication and the development of any adverse effects. Be certain to complete the prescription unless specifically directed by your veterinarian. Even if your pet feels better, the entire treatment plan should be completed to prevent relapse or prevent the development of resistance.
Side effect and contraindication:
While generally safe and effective when prescribed by a veterinarian, ivermectin can cause side effects in some animals. Ivermectin should not be used in animals with known hypersensitivity or allergy to the drug. Ivermectin should be used with caution in collie breeds or collie mixed breeds due to potential toxic effects. This is particularly true when using higher doses. Ivermectin should not be used in dogs that are positive for heartworm disease except under strict supervision of a veterinarian. Prior to starting a heartworm prevention containing ivermectin, the dog should be tested for heartworms. Ivermectin generally should be avoided in dogs less than 6 weeks of age. Ivermectin is relatively safe, but overdoses can occur if massive amounts are given or if the drug is given to heartworm positive dogs. Signs of overdose, including stumbling, tremors, blindness, disorientation or weakness, generally occur within 12 hours of overdose.
In heartworm positive dogs, supportive treatment for shock may be required. Ivermectin should be used with caution at high doses, a drug used to treat or prevent flea infestations.
The withdrawal time of 49 days has been established for ivermectin and clorsulon in cattle and sheep for slaughter. A withdrawal period for milk has not been established.
Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children.
Storage and expired time：

Here are 10 common things that could k*ll you!
10 – Raw almonds
And now we’re back to raw foods. With vegan and organic food becoming extremely mainstream these days, many have turned towards nuts and almonds as probably an all-time favorite – they’re the superfood of the modern world. These nuts are praised, okay okay, yes, I just said these nuts, but I’m just talking about almonds okay? ANYWAYS, almonds have a high amount of protein, minerals, and nutrients, so it seems like you can’t go wrong with almonds…..or can you?
Well, it turns out that almonds may have a couple of bad sides no one has warned us about. Before freaking out, be aware that there are two types of almonds – sweet and bitter. Yeah, I didn’t know that…..I’m gonna guess most people are oblivious to this fact when shopping for raw almonds! The bitter ones are the ones you should watch out for – they’re full of glycoside amygdalin. Since that probably doesn’t mean much to you, just know that your body will transform it into hydrogen cyanide. If hydrogen cyanide sounds familiar, it’s probably because it was the key ingredient used in the Nazi gas chambers.
Even worse, you wouldn’t need that big of a dose to k*ll you – just a couple of handfuls of raw bitter almonds would be enough to take out an adult. Well, I guess this means that I’m sticking to roasted almonds!
9 – Escalators
Billions of people are using escalators all around the world, it’s the perfect invention for the laziest of us. In fact, some places have completely eliminated the good ol’ stairs and introduced escalators only because, who needs to waste precious time walking up stairs?
However, after hearing this, you might favor the stairs a little bit more. Each year, around 17,000 people are injured due to escalator accidents in the USA alone. Are you f*cking serious? Who ARE these poor unfortunate people?! Anyways, out of those 17,000, around 30 actually die in an event where an innocent escalator ride turns into something worse. At the end of March 2017, an escalator in Hong Kong malfunctioned and suddenly started going backwards at double the speed! Around 20 people were hurt in this incident alone! Also, there are the events of certain clothing items, such as shoe laces or longer skirts, getting stuck in the escalator. There was a bizarre case in Singapore, where a young boy was wearing Crocs on the escalator, and lost his toe!!! To be honest, I make fun of anyone that wears crocs, but I’m not gonna do that for this poor little guy!
Experts suggest that escalator accidents may happen because they’re not serviced regularly. Some people complain that the design hasn’t changed much since it’s been invented; whatever the reason, you may want to pay a bit more attention to where you step next time. Annnnd just a tip, don’t wear Crocs, no matter if you’re gonna ride an escalator or not!
8 – Doctor’s handwriting
Not many of us can brag about our penmanship skills – not that anyone does much handwriting anyways with all the technology that we use. However, there are some people who still need to be a bit more aware of it. For example, doctors and their messy prescription handwriting!
It’s happened to all of us, the handwriting on the prescription was so sloppy, you might as well hire an expert to decode it! It’s been estimated that doctors in the United States write around 3 billion prescriptions per year; out of those 3 billion prescriptions, around 1 million patients suffer a consequence of some kind due to the bad handwriting. Some studies that have been carried out suggest that sloppy handwriting on prescriptions are the reason behind 7,000 deaths each year in the USA alone. The prescriptions were either completely misread or couldn’t be read at all!
In order to prevent deaths by handwriting, doctors are being encouraged to do e-prescriptions so mistakes would be minimized. 7000 deaths each year because of bad handwriting?! Make typing out prescriptions a law c’mon!!
