Each ml contains 10 mg Ivermectin
As an avermectin anthelmintic, ivermectin enhances the release of GABA at presynaptic neurons. GABA acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter and blocks the post-synaptic stimulation of the adjacent neuron in nematodes or the muscle fiber in arthropods. By stimulating the release of GABA, ivermectin causes paralysis of the parasite and eventual death. As liver flukes and tapeworms do not use GABA as a peripheral neurotransmitter, ivermectin is ineffective against these parasites.
There is great bioavailability after SC administration and distribution to most tissues, but does not readily penetrate into the CSF, thereby minimizing its toxicity. Collie-breed dogs apparently allow more ivermectin into the CNS than other breeds/species.
Ivermectin has a long terminal half-life in most species. Less than 5% of the drug is excreted in the urine.
Ivermectin is approved for use in control of roundworms, strongyles, pinworms, ascarids, hairworm, large-mouth stomach worms, threadworms, bots, lungworms, summer sores, eye worm, lice, mange mites and heartworm as an anthelmintic.

This drug formulated to be administered SC, do not give it IM or IV.
Use in Collie-breeds with caution and less than routine dose. Observe this breed for at least 8 hours after administration.
