 Deworming your Piggie, Dogs and Cats. Dog and cat info willl be at the bottom of the Piggie info.

Deworming your Piggie:

Ivermectin 1% solution is 300 mcg/kg. Which equates to 1cc per 75 lbs. 0.0133 cc per lb. Multiply the weight by 0.0133 to get the dose by cc.

Piggie weight x 0.0133= dosage

A Piggie weighing 55 lbs would get 0.73 of a cc. So a little over 7/10 of a 1 cc syringe injected.

A 50 ml bottle treats 3,750 lbs of Piggies. (roughly $0.01 per lb)

Cattle dosaging is 200 mcg/kg treating 5,500 lbs of cow (50 ml bottle)

A bottle of Ivermectin is roughly $38.00.

You can buy a tube of Ivermectin 1.87% Horse Paste dewormer for $3-8.00 depending upon the brand. It is a 0.21 oz tube which equals 6 cc. The dosaging is 91 mcg/lb and the tube treats 1250 lbs. (200 mcg/kg) Pigs require a dosage of 300 mcg/kg (136 mcg/ lb). So the tube will treat 836 lbs of Piggies. (A $3.00 tube is $0.003 per lb)

1 cc will treat 140 lbs of Piggie.

Piggie weight x 0.0071 = dosage

**It is easier if you squeeze the paste out into a 3 cc syringe or bigger and then into the 1 cc (Tuberculine syringe)

Pyrantel Pamoate (Strongid brand)

A 20 ml tube of Horse paste dewormer contains 180 mg/ml. Piggie dosage is 22 mg/kg or 10 mg/lb. Treating 360 lbs of Piggies.

1 cc will treat 18 lbs of Piggie.

Piggie weight x .0556 = dosage

Fenbendazole (Safegaurd brand)

A tube of Safegaurd horse paste has 25 g of paste containing 100 mg of Fenbendazole per gram. Piggie dosage is 5 mg/kg or 2.27 mg/lb. This will treat

1,100 lbs of Piggies.

1 cc will treat 25 lbs of Piggie.

Piggie weight x 0.04 = dosage.

DOGS & CATS

The Dog dosage is 2.27 mg/lb

Dog weight x 0.0167= dosage

Pyrantel Pamoate (Strongid Horse Paste)- Cat

The Cat dosage is 9.09 mg/lb

Cat weight x 0.0505 = dosage

Fenbendazole- Dog and Cat

22.7 mg/lb - Believe it or not - these dosages are high enough to kill a horse!

So, a Horse paste would not be financially beneficial.

Dog- 2.72 mcg/lb

Cat- 10.91 mcg/lb

1 cc = 6,970 lbs of Dog

Dog weight x 0.0116 = dosage solution given orally

A 50 lb dog (50 x 0.0116 = 0.58) So they would get almost 6/10 of a cc

Cat- if you take 0.25 cc of paste and dilute it in 20 cc of water (shake well)

1 cc of solution will treat 21.45 lbs of cat

Cat weight x 0.0466 = dosage solution given orally

An 8 lb cat (8 x 0.0466 = 0.3728) So they would get almost 4/10 of a cc

A 1 cc syringe (TB) has graduated markings 1/100. So you can get an accurate dosage.
