Information for Horse Owners: Swelling and itching reactions after treatment with Bimectin® (ivermectin) Paste have occurred in horses carrying heavy infections of neck threadworm (Onchocerca sp. microfilariae). These reactions were most likely the result of microfilariae dying in large numbers. Symptomatic treatment may be advisable.
Consult your veterinarian should any such reactions occur. Healing of summer sores involving extensive tissue changes may require other appropriate therapy in conjunction with treatment with Bimectin® (ivermectin) Paste. Reinfection, and measures for its prevention, should also be considered. Consult your veterinarian if the condition does not improve.
