I've not had to deal with it and I do live in an area that is conducive to this parasite.
I've previously used Ivermectin but now use Dectomax. The change was not due to dissatisfaction.

Do you treat prophylactically for this worm and what do you use?

I haven't used anything yet, just got my boys in July. But I suppose it is time.

I use Ivermectin on the sheep, so I will most likely use this on the 'Paca Boys as well.
I am curious though, do you apply topically, or as an injection, like with the sheep.
Dosage?

In order for it to be effective it needs to be injected sub q. With the Dectomax I use 1cc per 50#. When I used Ivermectin, I used 1cc per 80#.
