    The question would be what the "plus" is and whether or not it is safe for dogs. Ivermectin itself has been pretty well tested on dogs even though the cattle variety is not actually approved for dogs. I'd be hesitant to use something else without a lot of research. Golden Mom has a bunch of things listed up under the sticky thread for worming. See if you can figure out what the "plus" is and see if it is listed in that thread.

    The "plus" is clorsulon. It's not used in pets from what I can find. Personally I would stick with regular Ivermectin.
