Ivemectin killed the virus in a culture. A bullet would also do the trick. Point being, what works in-vivo often doesn't for in-vitro. Ivemectin works against parasites because they occupy the digestive tract and that's the route of administration. I don't imagine an ivemectin nebulizer is going to catch on.
Besides, we already have a looming issue with parasitic resistance to our dewormers, ivemectin being one of the last varieties with low resistance. We don't need to go screwing that up(any more than we already are) by giving it monthly.
I am on this ^^^ side of the Ivermectin fence.
Here’s my “dog doesn’t have worms” story:
Rottweiler came to live with me December, 2018. She had had all of her shots and de-worming in October, 2018.
I am not that diligent about the dogs to begin with but, life got ahead of me and suddenly it is early April, 2020 - neither dog has been to the vet, neither dog has had a fecal done.
I had to take the Rottenweiler to a specialist for back & hip x-rays on April 3, 2020.
They did a fecal while she was there. She did NOT have a single worm - nothing.
What is miraculous about that is this dog has a real penchant for horse manure. The “leave it” command and horse manure are synonymous with her.
That means my horses must not have worms and I only de-worm them twice yearly - maybe three for one horse if I think he has picked up pinworms.
I have been cautioned, for several years, by vets at different facilities to NOT over worm my horse due to the resistance worms are developing. Fine by me because I never was one to shove stuff down their throats unless I had/have to.
I have also heard about, then read up on studies regarding Ivermectin for Covid19. A seems a handful of old medicines are being resurrected and studied as a possible vaccine.
I am not one to jump right on any bandwagon, so I will watch, read, wait, and hope to heck something is developed soon IF something can even be developed, like was done for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, etc. I recently had a holistic vet tell me not to get to excited about a vaccine for Covid19.
Far as developing a vaccine for EIA, I’ve wondered that since I first heard about it in the 70’s ——-
