Ivermectin used for the Malaria parasite was the reason for one of the most recent Nobel prizes. It's wonderful stuff and has save a lot of canine lives too.

No. Fortunately we don't have heartworms here. But it's good and cheap stuff to use, especially if one got more dogs.

Those were the days.

But there are quite a lot controversy among vetsabout ivermectin here in Finland .... There are growing number of them who wouldn't write prescriptions for ivermectin. Don't ask why. I find this very absurd.

Yes, and the money made off western veterinary use helps subsidize human use against river blindness.
