Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi there, you are through to Dr Linda. Just a few minutes while I type my reply
Ivermectin should be used under the supervision of a vet and ideally a vet or nurse will apply the treatment for you. It is not only important for a vet to confirm the diagnosis and rule out underlying causes but also to assess for secondary bacterial infections and to ensure the therapy is working adequately.
The recommended dose for mice can be found in this table: http://www.noahcompendium.co.uk/?id=-450528
Use the xeno mini spot-on.
The average mouse weighs 30g so requires 3 drops. Apply to the skin on the back of the neck where it cannot be ingested.
Use a kitchen weighing scales to weigh your mouse and be very slow and careful when apply drops. They are given every 7-14 days as needed.
Here is an example of a link to the drops: https://www.animeddirect.co.uk/xeno-50.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAmuHhBRD0ARIsAFWyPwilL3NGTMsyfp3zw8wSvIwIwN6td4TK_p7m79hnWgUL9a93ih5lbicaAlXiEALw_wcB
