    Except there are numb nuts out there taking the 3% and ending up with Liver issues...
    Also struggling to get Ivomec for the cattle, getting it in drips and drabs. Luckily we have a good relationship at our local co-op so we have been able to get for the cattle.

    Just saw on eNCA that Ivermectin has been approved for topical use in SA. It has been shown that Ivermectin consumed internally is what works, so why only for topical use.......

    It seems that topical application works at least just as well.

    Different experts have different opinions.

    My local Co-op has 1% 50ml in stock for R200 and 500ml for R500. My math can't explain this.

    Every pack size is regulated and the costs differ because of this.

    I spoke to K again yesterday for a moment, he is a man in a rush at the moment. It is believed that the worms in Keven are of the same family as the bilharzia worm/parasite.
    There is considerable damage to his liver from this, and he has been told that he must eat once a day and drink nothing but water outside that time. The way i understand it his liver must rest 16 hours a day and work no more than 4.
    ???
    KK (Mod on GS)may be able to inform us better on subject later as it turns out that K knows Dr M who is KK's cousan. It has been mentioned that they will all be communicating on professional level regarding matter in due course. (Both being pharmacist etc)
