    Question expired de-wormer?

    I found a great deal a dollar a tube (ivermectin 1.87%) including shipping BUT they expire may '08...

    are they REALLY expired?

    I would use them within this year...

    I've got some expired dewormer too. I'm afraid to use it. In my opinion, totally not worth it.

    If you're going to order it and use it in the next say 2 months, you'll likely be fine.

    Outside of that, who knows. Some products simply lose effectiveness after expiration. Some become toxic.

    Considering how cheap non-expired ivermectin is, not worth it.

    We operate a Tack shop and I will not sell expired to anyone but I have used it within a year and had no problems and still found it to be effective. However, that has been my experience, you should make up your own mind. Again, if I were going to use it this year, I would have no problems.
