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

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.
