I was in the process of giving my 140 pound  10 yr old doe her ivermectin wormer (I have used these wormers many of times and know how they work) but when I put it at the dosage she was supposed to get, practically the whole thing went in her mouth   enough for a 1000 pound horse   whats gona happen to her and what do I do   I tried to grab some out of her mouth but she swallowed to soon

She'll probably get the runs.  Give her some fresh hay and also some baking soda.  That should help.

Would help her if her tummy gets upset----but I don't think she'll have a problem.

Ivermectin is a pretty safe and forgiving wormer. If nothing else, it will kill everything that is sensitive to it and then some! She certainly won't have lice or mange.  Wink (and no, I'm not saying she does, I am being a smart alec.  Roll Eyes)

a one time overdose that big will not do permanent damage as was said she may get the runs or a little tummy upset.  if it was dosed that big all the time it would eventually cause liver and kidney damage but a one time oops dose isn't going to be a big deal with ivomec.

I think what I would do, is pull her grain for 3 days, and offer it back slowly, half portions for a few days, increase it by small amounts until she's back to normal protions.

Ivermectrin horse paste wormer goes through them pretty fast, within 3 days it's about run it's course..only residue would remain.  Good thing she's not nursing kids, they to would get the scoots.

I think soft diarrhea is about all that's going to happen to her..she may display some hefty thirst..which is ok too.  Baking soda is what I would give her..if the diarrhea gets really bad and uncomfortable for her, a little pepto to help ease the stomach cramping.  It should run it's course in 3 days though.
