Default Please help urgent! Vet gave my hedgehog ivemectin without telling me what she was gi

Please can anyone help me. My hedgehog Alfie is 1 year old I brought him to the vet today as he has been having green poos and his behaviour has got a bit more aggressive so she gave him a antibiotic which I have to keep giving him and an injection which she told me was anti parasitic. After she gave him the injection she told me it was ivermectin and I started to panic because of all the things online about hedgehogs dying from it and now I am so scared for Alfie! Please help is ivemectin safe for him will he be ok after only 1 dose? It was only about an hour ago so he is just sleeping but seemed fine straight after being injected. I will make sure to keep checking on him but any advice is hugely appreciated thanks

Ivermectin shots are usually worse the more injections they are given. Reactions don't happen as often with just the one dose. Watch for anything unusual like, lethargy, loss of appetite or trouble moving around. If any thing unusual happens take him back in immediately. You might also want to call the vet and have them put in your file that you refuse all treatment with Ivermectin.
