Features of Ivermectin Injection For Dogs

Ivermectin is most commonly used as a heartworm preventive in dogs and cats. It also used ‘off label’ or ‘extra-label’ for treating a variety of internal and external parasites. For example, in dogs, ivermectin may be used in the treatment of mites (demodectic mange, scabies, and ear mites), intestinal parasites (hookworms, roundworms), and capillaria. In cats, ivermectin may be used to treat ear mites and cat scabies. Many drugs are commonly prescribed for off label use in veterinary medicine. In these instances, follow your veterinarian’s directions and cautions very carefully.

Ivermectin may be combined with other deworming medications. Ivermectin is available as tablets, chewable tablets, a topical liquid (for ear mite treatments), and an injectable that your veterinarian will administer. It may be given with or without food. If your animal vomits or acts sick after getting the medication on an empty stomach, give with food or a small treat to see if this helps. If vomiting continues, contact your veterinarian.

Side Effects of Ivermectin in Dogs

When used at a low dose for heartworm prevention in a dog free of heartworms, Ivermectin is relatively safe. At higher doses which may be used for treating other parasitic infections, the risk of side effects increases. Potential side effects include:1

  • Vomiting
  • Dilated pupils
