My dad bought this stuff that if like EquiMax, but it's called Zimecterin...
Does anyone happen to know the dosage for this treatment on dogs? Or the % of Ivermectin in the EquiMax, so we can compare? The % in the Zimecterin is 1.55%.
We just wanted to get a save guess before we gave it. :]

Thanks,

I missed this until now. Zimmermectin and Equimax are both good stuff.

Just squirt out a pea sized blob for pups and a Lima Bean size blob for dogs on your finger and rub it on the roof of their mouths.

Okay, good. Thanks, Steve. :)

We did exactly that on our pit and figured that if he was fine, we'd put it on the Lacys. lol. That medication worked wonders one the pit, who we picked up from a guy who wasn't feeding him well or keeping him healthy. Hewas nothing but skin and bones when we got him, but he's putting on some muscle now that he's been wormed properly.
