An oral liquid form of ivermectin was administered to 14 purebred Collies (12 rough coated, 2 smooth coated). All Collies were given ivermectin at dosages of 100 and then 200 micrograms/kg of body weight. Three of the dogs developed mild clinical signs of toxicosis (salivation, vomiting, confusion, ataxia, and tremors) with the 100 micrograms/kg dosage.(More)
Twenty-four Collies sensitive to the toxic effects of ivermectin, when administered at high dosages, were studied to evaluate the effects of repeated monthly treatment with an ivermectin beef-based formulation at amounts up to 10 times the dosage recommended for heartworm prevention in dogs. Collies were treated 3 times at 30-day intervals at rates of 12,(More)

Group 1 served as nonmedicated vehicle-treated controls; groups 2 through 5 were given an oral tablet form of ivermectin at dosages of 0.3 micrograms/kg, 1.0 micrograms/kg, 2.0(More)
In 2 trials, the efficacy of an in-feed preparation of ivermectin was evaluated in 40 pigs naturally infected with endoparasites and Sarcoptes scabiei var suis. Treated pigs (n = 10 in each trial) were fed a ration containing 2 ppm ivermectin for 7 days, followed by consumption of a nonmedicated ration for the remainder of the trial.

The efficacy of 0.5% moxidectin pour-on at two dosages was evaluated in 30 cattle with naturally acquired gastrointestinal nematode infections. The cattle were ranked according to pretreatment fecal egg counts and body weights, and were randomly assigned from replicates to three treatment groups. The mean number of trichostrongyle eggs in pretreatment fecal(More)
The bioequivalence of Strongid C and generic pyrantel tartrate was determined in a controlled study using 30 horses with naturally acquired endoparasitic infections. Three horses were randomly allocated to each of ten replicates based on quantitative nematode and ascarid egg counts and fecal larvae culture results. Horses within each replicate were randomly(More)
Twenty ponies less than 18 months of age and infected with Parascaris equorum were treated with either 0.2 mg of ivermectin/kg of body weight (n = 10) or a placebo (n = 10; controls). Five control and 5 ivermectin-treated ponies were euthanatized 14 and 35 days after treatment, respectively. At necropsy, the small intestinal contents, lungs, and liver were(More)
