DOSING PROGRAMME:

Routine treatment (Areas of heavy fluke infection)

As a guide, dose all cattle exposed to fluke infected pastures preventatively at regular intervals of 10 weeks from March/April through to October/November. In situations where stock are out-wintered another dose in January may be required. All animals grazing the pasture should be treated at these times. All bought in animals should be dosed before joining the main flock. Veterinary advice should be sought with regard to specific preventative dosing regimes.

Routine treatment (Areas of moderate fluke infection)

Dose all cattle on fluke infected pastures at intervals of 10 weeks throughout the fluke season, usually September to January/February. An additional preventative treatment in Spring will assist in reducing the amount of new infection on the pastures in the following Autumn. All bought in animals should be dosed before joining the main herd.

In-wintered Cattle

Where cattle are in-wintered, a single dose of Tribex 10% should be given 2 weeks after housing.

Treatment of sub-acute and acute outbreaks

Affected cattle should be treated immediately after diagnosis and veterinary advice should be sought for subsequent dosing intervals. If a preventative fluke dosing programme is employed the occurrence of acute fluke is greatly reduced. Retreatment may not be carried out within 8 weeks.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Do not use in cases of known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient.

Only use for liverfluke strains susceptible to triclabendazole. Care must be taken not to damage the mouth or pharyngeal region when dosing. Clean drenching equipment before and after use. Shake container well before use. Use unaltered product from the original container. Frequent and repeated use may lead to the development of resistance.

Tribex 10% can be safely given to pregnant cattle. Do not administer to cattle producing milk for human consumption.

No adverse effects were reported following a 3-fold overdose in cattle. A single dose of 200 mg/kg causes inappetence, transient weight loss and slight effects on motor activity and serum glucose lactate dehydrogenase (GLDH) in calves.

Withdrawal periods

Meat and offal: Cattle should not be slaughtered for human consumption within 56 days of the last treatment.

Not authorised for use in cattle producing milk for human consumption including during the dry period. Do not use during the last trimester of pregnancy in heifers which are intended to product milk for human consumption.

Operator warnings

Treatment of acute outbreaks

The flock should be treated immediately after diagnosis and veterinary advice should be sought for subsequent dosing intervals. If a preventative fluke dosing programme is employed, the occurrence of acute fluke is greatly reduced. Retreatment may not be carried out within 8 weeks.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Do not use in cases of known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient.

Anthelmintics are agents that destroy or result in the expulsion of susceptible parasitic worms. Parasite resistance to a particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent, repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class. To reduce this risk, dosing programmes should be discussed with a veterinary surgeon.

Tribex contains the anthelmintic Triclabendazole. Fluke (Fasciola hepatica) resistance to triclabendazole has been identified and losses associated with resistant strains of fluke in sheep flocks treated with triclabendazole can be significant. If signs of fascioliasis continue after treatment with Tribex, DO NOT REPEAT THE DOSE and do not dose with other products containing triclabendazole. Seek veterinary advice. If resistance is suspected or confirmed, an alternative product should be used on veterinary advice.

Tribex 5% can be safely given to pregnant sheep. Do not administer to sheep producing milk for human consumption.

No adverse effects were reported following a dose of 12.5 times the recommended dose. At higher doses (up to 20-fold), mild transient ataxia and weight loss were observed in some animals 3 - 6 days after treatment.

Withdrawal periods

Meat and offal: 56 days.

Not permitted for use in lactating animals producing milk for human consumption.

Operator warnings

When using the product do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash splashes from eyes and skin immediately. Take off any contaminated clothing immediately. Wash hands and exposed skin before meals and after work. In cases of hypersensitivity and contact allergy, direct skin contact and inhalation should be avoided. Wear gloves.
