Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] using ivermectin, questions

You have a smart vet!! I think Ivermectin is excellent to use to kill ear
mites, I have used it for years. 1 to 2 drops per ear for a ferret weighting
2 pound to 5 pounds has worked well for my bunch. As far as putting it in
their mouth, forget that idea, they don't like the taste and probably will
spit it out. After you apply Ivermectin (rub ear for 1/2 to 1 minute) ..
and then repeat in 4 to 6 weeks and then yearly.(this is suppose to keep
heartworms away too..yes even by putting drops in the whole body
absorbs it...I truly believe it works!! you are doing your ferrets a
real favor by having them treated, good for you!)
