AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Ivermectin liquid injections.
Being among a special class of parasiticides, Ivermectin can be used to treat and prevent heartworm and intestinal worms (except tapeworms) in small animals. Also, it can be used to deal with some external and internal parasites such as mites.
Ivermectin works by attacking the nervous system of a parasite and paralyzing it. The parasite dies when it can no longer feed off of the dog. Although it can be available in several forms, AdvaCare has made it available in tablet or liquid as it is proven to work well in such forms.
It is important to note that AdvaCare’s ivermectin injection is for veterinary purposes only, and altho’ there are similar medications available for human use, you should only use medications prescribed by a veterinary doctor or animal care specialist for an animal.
As with all veterinary medicine, some unwanted effects can occur from the use of ivermectin. Always consult a veterinary physician or animal care specialist for medical advice before use.
The difference between the safe use of ivermectin and poisoning is all about the dose and an animal’s inherent sensitivity to the drug. For instance, some dog breeds have in them a kind of gene such as MDR1 or ABCB1 that makes doses of ivermectin becomes so dangerous while it is safe for other animals.
Ivermectin’s side effects range from agitation, dilated pupils, crying, paralysis of hind legs, lack of appetite, muscle tremors, blindness, disorientation, to other neurological signs, such as head pressing or wall climbing.
For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult a veterinary physician.
If any symptom persists or worsens, or you notice any other symptom, then please seek veterinary medical treatment immediately.
