    What you need is:

    CYDECTIN Pour on for cattle

    1 cc / 25 lbs BY MOUTH (even though it says pour on...DO NOT POUR IT ON!)

    It is purple and smells like kerosene but that is the right stuff...it kind of freaked me out the first time I used it, but that's what it looks and smells like.

    I reworm them 19 days later to break the life cycle of the worms. I also slightly overdose them rather than underdose them as underdosing will lead to the worms becoming resistant to the wormer.

    The injectable is new and costs more so keep with the pour on until we know more about it and dosage.
