    My head says to just cut the dose from the chart in half and it's close enough, under dosed, but that's better than over done.

    IDK why they didn't make a chart for the others as well...I'm not buying yet a 4th bottle of ivermectin...

    https://www.guinealynx.info/topical_ivermectin_pour-on.html
    0.5% solution
    Each ml contains 5 mg ivermectin (5 mg/ml).
    Guinea pigs are dosed at 0.5mg/kg. This amount of ivermectin is found in 0.1 cc of this solution.

    But I have the 0.8% solution. I need help getting a chart made for this dosage instead.

    http://www.guinealynx.info/ivermectin_products.html

    0.8 mg /ml meaning a 0.25ml dose will contain about 0.2 mg ivermectin. Topically - at 0.5 mg/kg

    Ivermectrin has a LARGE overdose safety factor. I'd give it as you say & again in 10 days, and be done.
