    Also, I'd say it's a medium sized squirrel.

    INDEED!!!
    Patchy needs help, and with the help of this forum, I'm just the guy to help him out! ;-) (if that makes any sense at all...)

    And, I must say, I don't do this for any reason other than I feel bad for the little guy, but the side bonus is I'm earning unexpected points with my wife, too! Listen up, guys! :-P

    Thanks for all your assistance, it's truly appreciated.

    Hopefully someone is still following this thread: there's been some implication that one could put the required dosage on a single pecan or walnut. My dosage instructions are 1 ml, three times, once every 10 days. But when I tried to put one ml on a pecan, I found I needed about five pecans (shelled, so I suppose it's half a pecan). Does that sound right, or am I doing it wrong? I do have a syringe marked mL, and google tells me that's another way of saying ml, so I think I'm doing it right, just want more confirmation.
    Thanks,
    mjc

    Apple Corps helped me straighten this out. 1/100'th of a CC is the prescribed amount for a 1% dilution of Ivermectin and a 1 lb squirrel. About the size of a pin head. Thanks.

    All for the love of fuzzers and helping each other out

    With some luck - Ivermectin will start to work its magic quickly and some improvement may be seen within - 7 days maybe ????

    I gave 1 drop Ivermectin to Pookie last Tuesday evening in a strength of 1 drop of 1% ivermection to 12 drops of PG. (I don't have a syringe to measure pinheads so I used an eyedropper.) Pookie seems to have more energy and leaves her nest more now and the patches have not increased, but they are looking somewhat scabbier than they were before. I don't know if this means she is getting better or worse. Attached are some pictures I took several weeks ago and then tonite. She has had a bad left eye and a torn ear since I've known her. In fact, her eye looks better now. Can someone comment on whether this is mange or does she have a fungus?

    Its mange and mange will affect the eyes, making it difficult for them to see well.
