This is from Dr. Kemmerer's article on heartworms on my website. Dr.
K has quite a bit of experience with heartworms in ferrets and I take
her word as gospel on this topic.

"...add 0.3 ml's of 1% Ivermectin injectable to one ounce of
propylene glycol, making a 100 microgram/ml solution. Dose this at
0.1 ml per pound of body weight (10 micrograms per pound) once

This is an oral solution, not injectable.
