That is coming from my vet. I know the back of the bottle says that, but she has told me that its not strong enough to get rid of them. All I know is that it works.

Both Ivomec and Ivomec PLUS deliver 200mcg of Ivermectin per kilogram. The strength is the same. The only difference is that the "Plus" also delivers 2 mg clorsulon per kg.

My vet uses Ivomec in our part of Illinois (northern).



Product Description



Ivermectin is derived from the avermectins, a family of potent, broad-spectrum antiparasitic agents isolated from fermentation of Streptomyces avermitilis.



IVOMEC Injection is a clear, ready-to-use, sterile solution containing 1% ivermectin, 40% glycerol formal, and propylene glycol, q.s. ad 100%. IVOMEC Injection is formulated to deliver the recommended dose level of 200 mcg ivermectin/kilogram of body weight in cattle when given subcutaneously at the rate of 1 mL/110 lb (50 kg). In Swine, IVOMEC Injection is formulated to deliver the recommended dose level of 300 mcg ivermectin/kilogram body weight when given subcutaneously in the neck at the rate of 1 mL per 75 lb (33 kg).



IVOMEC Plus is a ready-to-use sterile solution containing 1% w/v ivermectin, 10% clorsulon, 40% glycerol formal, and propylene glycol, q.s. ad 100%. It is formulated to deliver the recommended dose level of 200 mcg ivermectin/kg and 2 mg clorsulon/kg given subcutaneously behind the shoulder at the rate of 1 mL per 110 lb (50 kg) body weight.

My large animal Veterinarian also replied to me a moment ago, so I'm sharing his thoughts on the subject as well:



Either one will work the same on lungworms(Dictyocaulus sp.). The only difference is that the ivomec plus has clorsulon in it, which is for killing liver flukes. But it's the ivermectin portion of the medication that kills lungworms, and both have the same concentration of that in them.

hey, we let them have free rain at psu lab full neo. found nothing that lead us to an answer so we had our own vet do fluid draws on the lungs nothing grew on 3 dif samples. only the cough was still there. we did not loose a deer to its just the one that we had to sacrifice for the better, all seem to have gotten over it now its still a mystery. How are all the deer doing for you guys?

Ive seen those worms coughed out of the deer and onto the snow on more than one occasion. The adult stage of one of the worms has it in the sinus. As a taxidermist I have also seen these worms (more like nasty grubs) attempting to crawl from the nose and mouth of the dead heads brought to me.



Scott, is there any harm in running them through the squeeze and giving them both a IvoPlus shot sq AND poly serum, as a safe guard?

Im no vet by all means. All I know is my deer, and other farms in our area are having this same problem. Ivomec PLUS is all that is helping us. I dont know if its lungworms, flukes or what. My vet was out here and told me lungworms was the problem, so thats what ive been going off of. I have tried regular Ivomec and they still have the same cough. Ivomec PLUS is getting rid of it within 2 days of when I inject them. Anyone who tries this let us know what the outcome is.

For the typical parasite issues experienced in Northern Illinois (lungworm, mites, etc.), my well-trained Deer Vet advises administering IVOMEC (not Plus, because we don't have issues with Liver flukes up here- so why risk poisoning the animal further?) and then to follow up within a month again with another SQ injection in the neck (above the shoulder blade). Timing is important- and this has already been discussed on the forum ad naseum. Good luck PA farmers! Sorry to hear about coughing deer- hope it clears up real soon! Best wishes to all.
