Right now injectable ivermectin is out of stock at most online retailers. If you are super desperate for ivermectin, then there's the Ukrainian option. HomeLabVet.com sells Brovermectin.
- Ukrainian veterinary regulations may be substantially different than other countries.
- Injectable ivm requires syringes to get ivm out of the bottle and into a spoon, which is inconvenient.
- Injectable ivm contains glycerol formal, which sees very little use in humans. Not recommended for pregnant people.
- 2% concentration instead of 1% means that you can accidentally get the dosage wrong
- Shipping took 2.5 weeks to North America
- HomeLabVet doesn't seem to sell disposable syringes.
- Cheap, if you need a lot of ivm (e.g. for prophylactic use and/or long haul)
- It's available
- It comes in multiple 10mL vials (equivalent to 20mL 1% ivermectin)
- Seller places low value on the shipment so the buyer avoids brokerage fees and taxes
Excipients: glycerol formal, propylene glycol, polysorbate - 80.
Some people are allergic to polysorbate (similar to PEG) or propylene glycol. And of course, some people are allergic to ivermectin. Don't eat this if you're allergic.

Taste and smell: Similar to Ivomec. It tastes bitter and has a subtle smell. I don't have any other way of figuring out if this is real or not.
Bottom line: When Ivomec is back in stock, I would just buy that. It's from a French company called Merial that was acquired by the German company Boehringer Ingelheim. It's gone through the regulatory route in US and Canada so you're dealing with regulations that you're familiar with.
