I currently have 6 dogs in the kennel on trifexis . Itís pretty expensive and I was talking to an older gentleman who recommended giving them ivomec. Was wondering what thoughts and opinions are out there regarding giving ivomec as a heart worm preventive. I can and will continue to give them the trifexis but if ivomec is a sufficient med to do the job I would consider switching since it would be a lot less expensive. Thanks in advance.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

Ivamec is the active ingredient in heart guard. Just be 100% positive that your dog doesnít have heart worms.

I've been using it since 1992. I put .3 on a piece of bread each month.

Thanks for the replyís . Iíve been told to use .1 cc to 10lbs of body weight. Looks like the rate has room to very some as long as your consistently doing it once a month. Glad to hear itís been working for yíall and appreciate the info.

Been using Ivomec since it came on the market. Have not lost a dog to heart worms since. Over the years I've had a few dogs that would not take it willingly but have found if hidden in some canned dog food and fed prior to daily feeding even the picky eater's gobble it. I give a half CC to my Brittany and 3/4 CC to my Pointer's and Setters. Every month all year.

That is what I have been doing for 25-30 years. Never had heartworms in a dog.
