Subcutaneous Ivermectin injection~
Hi, I was just wanting to make sure it is okay in proper doses to inject Ivermectin 1% into myself as well as my cat subcutaneously. It is sold for primarily cow and swine.

Hello,

I would defer your question regarding your cat to a veterinarian.

For humans, there is an FDA (US) approved formulation that is oral and I would not recommend subcutaneous administration of the large animal preparation (1% ivermectin).
