Ear Flushes that Work

Today I noticed that two of our three studs that are in the same pen were shaking their heads and sneezing. It has been my experience that there is usually a tick or some other small irritant down in one of their ears. I have a great solution for this brought to me by Dr. Rob Pollard. He has put together an ear flush that actually works. It comes in an 8 ounce bottle and for mites or ticks you add 2ccs of ivermectin directly into the 8 ounce bottle. You then shake it up and draw up in a syringe enough for 3ccs per ear for each animal. We squirt the liquid into each ear and they shake like crazy. But in about ½ hour you will see total improvement. No head shaking, no sneezing, you're done. Your animals will thank you. Use gloves and cover your eyes; this stuff can cause a reaction if it gets in your eyes.
