Promectin

I have bought promectin to treat my dogs mange, and I know the dose but no where can I find how frequently to give it to him. Do I give it every day?

What did the vet say about frequency of dosing, hali? We're not vets here and don't know enough about your dog to give you good advice. The dosing might differ depending on weight and general health of your dog.

That stuff isn't very forgiving if you make a mistake in the calculation of the dosage.

Also, if the dog has the mdr1 genetic mutation, there can be very serious side effects.
