Ivermectin - (Ivomec) and Collies
Ivomec is a trade name for the drug Ivermectin, which is licensed for use on large animals and other species to treat skin infections and parasites.
It is NOT recommended for use in dogs, and the manufacturers go to great lengths to tell vets not to use it on collie type dogs, as it can have particularly disastrous consequences, even coma and death.
Despite this, collie dogs taken to the vet for itches or scratches, may sometimes be injected with this potentially lethal drug. We expect our vets to know this, - but they are only human, and may not remember everything all of the time , - so remember the name, and check that your vet is aware of the situation if you own a collie dog!
