Off-Label Usages of Ivermectin in Dogs:
We do not encourage the off label usage of any medication, however, we believe you should be aware of them.
Ivermectin is used in higher dosages to treat both demodectic and sarcoptic mange in dogs. Ivermectin used in these dosages is considered to be an off-label use of ivermectin as the drug is not approved by the FDA when used at these dosages. Off-label usage is common and ivermectin is frequently used by veterinarians to treat mange in dogs but dog owners should be aware that the dosages are much larger than those dosages used for monthly heartworm prevention. We have also found that when dogs are treated with Ivermectin for mange, they are less susceptible to ticks and ear mites.
PLEASE NOTE: Some dogs have a Genetic sensitivity to Ivemectin and some breeds of dogs: Collies, Shelties, Shetland Sheepdogs, and Old English Sheepdogs have a genetic sensitivity to Ivermectin. Heartworm preventive dosages of ivermectin are normally low enough to be safe for these high-risk dogs.
