Can this be used on pregnant and nursing does

Andy Bowes

  • VioVet customer since 2009
  • From: Essex, United Kingdom

Can this be used on both pregnant and nursing does. ? thankyou

  • Brand Manager

Hi Andy,

Unfortunately there is no data showing whether this product is safe for use in pregnant and lactating does, and the manufacturer recommends that it is not used during pregnancy/lactation.

If you can confirm what parasites you need to treat (internal such as worms, or external like mites), we will try to recommend an alternative for you. Alternatively, your vet will be able to tell you which they think is best for your doe.

How often should I use Ivermectin

How often should I apply Ivermectin as a preventive method?

  • Non-Executive Director

This depends on the level of risk which will vary from one location to another. Many people do not use anything like this at all unless there is a new reason to. More usually people will look for signs of trouble and then treat accordingly at the first signs.

Egg withdrawal.

Frances Girling

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Devon, United Kingdom

I have a chicken with a bad infestation of lice. I was considering using ivermectin spot on to treat it. I want to know what length of egg withdrawal I should use if I treat all the birds.

  • Brand Manager

Unfortunately, there isn't an ivermectin based product licensed for use in chickens, so in order for us to be allowed to supply it, you would need to speak to your vet and ask for a prescription. Your vet would be able to advise you of a suitable withdrawal time for the product but the eggs shouldn't be sold or given away to friends.

If you wanted to try a product approved for use in chickens first, Johnsons Poultry Mites & Lice Powder would be a good place to start. This can be used on the chickens and the coop, and you can continue to eat the eggs after and throughout treatment if you wish.
