Dude, it's horse dewormer, not pig dewormer.

If only a veterinarian had been consulted, this tragedy could have been avoided 👮‍♂️

Some of those who work forces, take the paste that's for horses.

His immune system: "F*** you, I won't do what you tell me!"


u/VoidQueenK423 Team Pfizer Oct 23 '22

Honestly I don't know why these people expect their immune systems to obey their brain government.

I have horses, but ivermectin is also used for cattle and pigs, though it’s administered differently.


u/Cum_on_doorknob Oct 23 '22

I mean, it’s ivermectin. As a doctor, I hate seeing it called anything but it’s proper drug name. It’s an ineffective medication for Covid. That fact is enough, no need to get hyperbolic and make it sound even worse, just hurts our credibility.

But it is a horse dewormer. That's like saying "I hate it when people call a banana a fruit... it's a banana!"

It's an anti-parasitic. It's the first line treatment for many parasitic infections in humans.

It's like calling amoxicillin "cat uti medicine." Yea, it's given to your cat, but it's also a standard antibiotic for humans.

I'm not a part of anyone's "our". And calling out bastards is a pretty routine activity of mine, so my credibility isn't going to be particularly damaged by calling them a "pig" once, for a joke.

Absolutely, in a more formal context, I'd speak with more propriety. On occasion it is useful to provide citations to support an argument about both the recklessness of advocating the use of ivermectin, as well as the advantages of reducing police funding in favour of social services. But this is not that time.

This. is. Sunday!

p.s. Unrelated to any of the rest of it, if you are an M.D., thank you. You lot have been through absolute hell, and the work you do to provide health care and save lives is deeply appreciated.


u/Cum_on_doorknob Oct 23 '22

Your point on it being Sunday is fair. I just see it so often all the time, and it gets on my nerves.

And thanks for the kind words. Covid has made this job pretty rough.


u/Visible-Secretary121 Oct 23 '22

Doc...gotta ask "cum on doorknob" doesn't hurt your credibility?


u/Cum_on_doorknob Oct 23 '22

lol, that was made when I was a little premed shit
