I would take that with a grain of salt.

Ivermectin is contra-indicated by the manufacturer ( Merck ) for use in herps. Ivermectin is a highly toxic and may cross the blood-brain barrier in many herp species. It is immediately fatal in many species by paralysis and respiratory failure, or can result in long term neurological damage or blindness.

I will say again, as I have said in the past numerous times - stay away from Ivermectin in your herps. Fenbendazole is much safer and has a broader effective range anyway.

I have never used Ivermectin and never will.
