Animal De-wormer for COVID?

August 30th, 2021 at 11:27 am EST
Hello Friend,

Welcome to Monday

I hope that you, and all of your family...dogs/cats/other critters and the other humans are doing well...

DO you have a bit of Pandemic fatigue?

Tell me about it...

Before we get into the Ivomec/COVID story, how about something that can take you away from all of that..good for pets/people that have anxiety... ( say from seeing too much about COVID..)

Our dog Tula gets in a 'bit of a state' with loud noise- there was a big street event outside last night with LOUD BOOMING music.. she was a shaking mess..

What did I pull out..

Dr Jones' ULTIMATE CBD for Dogs and Cats

I gave her 5 drops, and in about 20 mins she was sleeping :-)

Also working well for many dogs/cats with joint stiffness/pain

It's here:

So is this FACT or FICTION?

A new story in Canada says this..

'Alberta feed stores inundated with calls for ivermectin over false claims livestock dewormer treats COVID'

But WebMD published this story a little over a year ago..

Veterinary Drug shows promise against COVID-19

An inexpensive drug used to treat parasitic infections killed the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 in less than 48 hours in a laboratory setting, Australian researchers say.

The drug, ivermectin, has been used widely used for decades. It was introduced as a veterinary drug in the 1970s. Doctors also prescribe it to treat head lice, scabies, and other infections caused by parasites. According to a report published online in the journal Antiviral Research, the drug quickly prevented replication of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The study has been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication, although it is not yet a "definitive" version of record.

Researchers infected cells with SARS-CoV-2, then exposed them to ivermectin. "We showed that a single dose of ivermectin could kill COVID-19 in a petri dish within 48 hours, indicating potent antiviral activity," says study co-author David Jans, PhD, a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at Monash University in Melbourne.

Even at 24 hours, "there was a really significant reduction" in the virus, study leader Kylie Wagstaff, PhD, a senior research fellow in biochemistry and molecular biology at Monash University, said in a statement.

But experts say more testing is needed to know if it works well in people and if it’s safe to use.


The Canadian story on IVOMEC for COVID says this..

'Touted as possible cure'

The largest study in favour of ivermectin as a COVID-19 treatment was retracted after concerns about data fabrication, plagiarism and ethical breaches.

No clinical studies have proven whether ivermectin can slow or stop the novel coronavirus from growing in human cells — but that hasn't stopped right-wing media personalities and politicians from touting it as a possible treatment or cure for COVID-19.

But then look at this recently published review article..


Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infection: A Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Trial Sequential Analysis to Inform Clinical Guidelines

Moderate-certainty evidence finds that large reductions in COVID-19 deaths are possible using ivermectin. Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease. The apparent safety and low cost suggest that ivermectin is likely to have a significant impact on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic globally.

So WHO do you believe?


Here is how I make sense of it...

1. Be as informed as possible- and read from multiple sources..
2. Take it all with a healthy dose of skepticism
3. COVID is a serious pandemic, in my opinion best prevented with vaccines, but there are likely many options to treat it.. and Ivermectin may be one..
4. People take shortcuts, not putting in the time to make their own informed decision..hence the blanket 'Ivomec does NOT work' statement from the 'trusted' CBC news here in Canada..
5. Question what I am saying as well.. trust your dog/cat  :-)

Heal Your Pet At Home!

Best Wishes,

Dr Andrew Jones, DVM
P.S. Take care of yourself and your family. 

Stay well. 

Avoid people. 

But spend time with your pets. If you are to get COVID-19 it will be from humans.. NOT your dogs or cats..

P.P.S.  For the COVID/News Anxiety... or your dog or cat with joint pain..
