There are many drugs that have different uses. At one time my mother-in-law was prescribed the same drug as her dog.
I think that the constant calling of this medication as”horse dewormer” is political and specifically US politics.

It has also shown serious promise as an anti-viral.  Many drugs have more than one useful effect.  Viagra was first developed as a heart medication.

Not everything the alt-right supports is nonsense.  Even a stopped clock is right sometimes.
