In brief: No

There are differences in the way humans metabolize and react to some drugs compared to animals.

In brief: Ivermectin...

...Is off-label for human use - meaning it's not approved, but it's been used.
Some breeds of dogs and cats are easily poisoned with ivermectin, so caution is in order for people.
