FARMR wrote:Has anyone seen unexpected cattle deaths after administering Ivomec or ivermection? I have had 3 occasions where my healthy calves were administered Ivomec. Beginning 4 days after administration the calves would suddenly die or would experience some paralysis and then die. I have done research and found that cattle should not be dewormed with Ivomec when the heelfly is in the bot stage and migrated to the spinal or tracheal areas. The Ivomec will kill the bot that will in turn kill the animal. This happens in Missouri mainly during the months of December thru February. Merial labs has been dishonest and uninformative to me by saying that their product cannot be the cause of this. I have lost 25% of my treated cattle (19 of 72) and another 25% affected on one occasion. If anyone has experienced this please contact me. I would especially like to hear from a veterinarian. Thank you
I've lost one that suspect was from the use of ivomec. But its pure speculation . Coulda been several things. I lost way more to hayrings
You can all go to he// . I'll go to Texas.

Cattle CAN die from Ivomec - but, it is a MANAGEMENT problem, not a product problem. If grubs are migrating in the wrong area of the cattle, and you kill the grubs, you kill the cow.
