Ivermectin Dosage Calculator for Dogs – Safe Medication Guide

Our ivermectin dosage calculator for dogs swiftly determines the appropriate medication amount for your canine based on their weight.

Ivermectin Dosage Calculator for Dogs

This calculator is designed to give you an estimate of the correct dosage of Ivermectin for your dog. Please enter your dog’s weight in pounds and the desired dosage in micrograms per pound, then click “Calculate”.

How to Use the Ivermectin Dosage Calculator

Enter the weight of your dog in pounds in the first field. Then, enter the desired dosage of Ivermectin in micrograms per pound in the second field. The typical dosage range for Ivermectin is between 6 to 12 µg per pound. Once you enter these values, click the “Calculate” button to receive the dosage result in milligrams.

How It Calculates

The calculator multiplies the weight of your dog by the desired dosage to get the total micrograms needed. It then converts this value from micrograms to milligrams (since 1 milligram equals 1000 micrograms) to give the final result. For example, if your dog weighs 25 pounds and the desired dosage is 6 micrograms per pound, the calculation would be: 25 lbs * 6 µg/lb = 150 µg, which is equal to 0.15 mg.
