ivermectin dose

My vet in Georgia, where mosquitoes were worse than St. Louis, was having me give my dogs .1cc of the 1% sterile solution of Ivermectin orally to my 65lb dog each month for heartworm preventive. Do you think this is an accurate dose? Thanks.

Ivermectin (Stromectol)
(eye-ver- MEK-tin)
Pregnancy Category: C Stromectol (Rx)

Classification: Anthelmintic

Action/Kinetics: Binds selectively to glutamate-gated chloride channels that occur in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells. This leads to increase in permeability of cell membrane to chloride ions and hyperpolarization of nerve or muscle cell, resulting in paralysis and death of parasite.

Uses: Intestinal strongyloidiasis due to Strongyloides stercoralis. Onchocerciasis due to Onchocerca volvulus.

we have an understanding with them and I'm not to bheotr them. I'm very impressed that you're a mommy already. I get my turn at that job next spring. Mum is very excited about it. She says I'll do a good job but that it's about time I found out what's it's like to have a baby nursing ME all the time. (She's put out with me over the fact that I'm over a year old and still enjoying my milk.) She says I should ask you for advice on mommyhood next spring!Mum just told me that your name comes from the movie with that song she's ALWAYS listening to while she milks Gretel-Mommy it goes like this: Dum Duuuh Duuuh Da-da-da-DUUUUUH! Mum makes her Singing-Camera-Thingy-Dingy play it and sometimes she even HUMS IT. Our humans are so funny (*giggle*).
