Can someone please give me a link for the ivermectin they buy, and a description of proper dosage and how to administer? My piggies would truly be thankful :)

This is the kind I got: http://www.amazon.com/Durvet-Ivermectin-Pour-On-250/dp/B000HHOEIU
It's the 0.5 pour-on% solution.
The syringe it comes with is too big to use to dose, you'll need a 1CC (mL) syringe to accurately measure the dose.
Your piggies need to weigh at least 350 grams before they can be treated.

These links will help you calculate the dose, but check with a vet or ask on here to make sure the dose you're giving is correct.

The .5% pour-on is the easiest to use, but the most expensive. The 1.87% livestock paste is cheaper, but requires a lot of dilution. You can google them up, find them at a feed store or at someplace like Walmart, at www.tlpmarketplace.com, or on Amazon.
