A sterile non-aqueous solution for injection containing 1%w/v ivermectin.
IVOMEC Classic Injection for Cattle and Sheep is indicated for the effective treatment and control of the following parasites of sheep and cattle:
|Sarcoptes scabiei var. bovis||•||•|
IVOMEC Classic Injection for Cattle and Sheep may also be used as an aid in the control of biting lice (Damalinia bovis) and the mange mite (Chorioptes bovis), but complete elimination may not occur.
Persistent Activity in Cattle:
When cattle have to graze on pasture contaminated with infective larvae of cattle nematodes, treatment with IVOMEC Classic Injection for Cattle and Sheep at the recommended dose rate of 1ml per 50kg bodyweight controls re-infection with the following parasites of cattle:
|Dictyocaulus viviparus||up to 28 days|
|Ostertagia ostertagi||up to 21 days|
|Oesophagostomum radiatum||up to 21 days|
|Cooperia spp.||up to 14 days|
|Trichostrongylus axei||up to 14 days|
|Haemonchus placei||up to 14 days|
To obtain optimal benefit from the persistent activity of IVOMEC Classic Injection for Cattle and Sheep for grazing animals, it is recommended that calves which are set-stocked in the first grazing season should be treated 3, 8 and 13 weeks after the day of turn-out. This can protect the animals from parasitic gastro-enteritis and lungworm disease throughout the grazing season, provided they are set-stocked, all the calves are included in the programme and that no untreated cattle are added to the pasture. Treated animals should always be monitored according to good husbandry practices.
For the treatment and control of sheep scab Psoroptes ovis, two injections with a seven-day interval are required to treat clinical signs of scab and to eliminate mites.
Benzimidazole-resistant strains of Haemonchus contortus and Ostertagia circumcincta are also controlled.
IVOMEC Classic Injection for Cattle and Sheep should be given only by subcutaneous injection, using aseptic precautions, at the recommended dosage level of 200 mcg ivermectin per kg bodyweight under the loose skin in front of, or behind, the shoulder in cattle and in the neck in sheep.
To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.
When treating sheep of less than 16kg, seek veterinary advice regarding the use of 1 ml disposable syringes graduated in increments of 0.1 ml. For the treatment of individual sheep, a syringe not exceeding 2.0 ml and calibrated in increments of 0.1 ml should be used.
