What is the correct Ivermectin Dosage for Demodex?

My puppy has demodex. Took him to the vet. He is 32lbs Vet said 0.3cc daily, but this seems like a very low dose. Please help.

I fostered a lab pup with severe demodex about 2 years ago. For the life of me I do not recall the dosage as it depends on the weight.

Regardless, follow the vet recommendation and if not certain, give him/her a call and ask if you understood the dosage correctly. This way you are not sounding like you are questioning, but confirming.

You will notice a difference gradually. Take a picture of now, review the picture in one weeks time and you will see a difference. Keep pictures going every once a week to monitor progress.

No the vet keeps saying 0.3cc but that dosage cannot be correct. My dog who is 10 lbs took 0.3 cc of the same medication so how could a 32lb dog take the same dose? Doesnt make any sense at all.

That dosing chart in that link is very confusing to me. Can somebody please just tell me how much ivermectin to give a 32lb dog for demodex? Please and thank you.

only information i could find was 1/10 cc per 10 lbs so 10 lbs would be.1cc..so at 32 lbs .3cc would be correct. You could always call another vet clinic and just ask to make sure.
