Levamisole or diethylcarbamazine (the old heartworm daily preventative) were used before the avermectins. (So were organophosphates, but I'd not suggest that class of drug.)
As for fecal...
Ppm *is* mg/kg. no need for a calculator there.
Here's hoping you don't arrive home to some unpleasant parting gesture!
Authorizing deadly force to protectschool property is a little over the top, don't you think?
OP, I don't blame you for not saying who the mill was.
No need for people not involved to jump on them.
However, I'd certainly be pretty damned annoyed with them that they think they behaved...
It's so poorly effective against ticks that I wouldn't risk injecting it.
Ever wonder why those numbers are so low?
Might just have something to do with the testing.
Take a look at the incidence maps over a 20 year period and the trend downward is obvious.
That was the first thing that came to mind here, too!

If that was botulism, it sounds like an atypical case.

BO may even have a custom mix...
This happens in Boston, as well.
I would be switching feeds forthwith.
And notifying the company as to why.
I'd also love to know who these morons are.
OP, I wish you the best, but I totally understand why you do not want to transport this horse without the owner's permission.
I would suggest that you not do so even *with* her permisssion,...
There is so much wrong with the director's plan, one wonders where to start.
Perhaps a good place would be with a systematic assessment of the horses' current conditions, using the Henneke BCS...
How do you know they haven't?
Just because *your* pants don't have demons in them...
20 mg/kg PO of ranitidine is roughly the overall *daily* dose, but it should be divided into 3, and given at 8 hour intervals.
That works out to 6.6 mg/kg, or 3 mg/lb.
So long as no unwilling party is being harmed by some belief or other, and those beliefs are not being forced on the populace at large, why on earth get one's knickers in a twist about what somebody...
If you want a vegan pet, get a rabbit. Seriously.
Yes. It *did* raise my eyebrows when I saw that.
Made me wonder whether they were doing a bt of weasel-wording wrt other species. "No cattle feed" vs. "only horse feed"...
