Indications for use

For the treatment and control of gastrointestinal nematodes, lungworms, eyeworms, warbles, chorioptic and sarcoptic mange and sucking and biting lice in beef and non-lactating dairy cattle.

The product at the recommended dosage level of 500 μg ivermectin per kg bodyweight effectively controls the following parasites of cattle:

Gastrointestinal Roundworms (Adult, L4 and Inhibited L4)

Ostertagia ostertagi

Gastrointestinal Roundworms (Adult and L4)

Haemonchus placei

Trichostrongylus axei

T. colubriformis

Cooperia spp.

Oesophagostomum radiatum

Gastrointestinal Roundworms (Adult)

Strongyloides papillosus

Trichuris spp.

Lungworms (Adult and L4)

Dictyocaulus viviparus

Eye Worms (Adult)

Thelazia spp.

Warbles (parasitic stages)

Hypoderma bovis

H. lineatum

Mange Mites

Sarcoptes scabiei var. bovis

Chorioptes bovis

Lice

Linognathus vituli

Haematopinus eurysternus

Solenopotes capillatus

Damalinia bovis

The product given at the recommended dosage of 500 μg/kg bodyweight, controls infections with Trichostrongylus axei and Cooperia spp. acquired up to 14 days after treatment, Ostertagia ostertagi and Oesophagostomum radiatum acquired up to 21 days after treatment, and Dictyocaulus viviparus (lungworm) acquired up to 28 days after treatment. It also controls horn fly (Haematobia irritans) for up to 35 days after treatment.

The timing of treatment should be based on epidemiological factors and should be customised for each individual farm. A dosing program should be established by a qualified professional person.

Contra-indications

Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient or any of the excipients.

The product has been formulated for topical application specifically in cattle. Do not apply or administer to other species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may occur.

Do not apply to areas of skin which have mange, scabs or other lesions or to areas contaminated with mud or manure.

Special warnings for each target species

Rainfall before or after treatment will not affect the efficacy of the product. Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:

Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.

Resistance to macrocyclic lactones (which includes ivermectin) has been reported in Cooperia spp. in cattle within the EU. Therefore, the use of this and other similar macrocyclic lactone products should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.

Special precautions for use in animals

For external use only.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

HIGHLY FLAMMABLE – KEEP AWAY FROM HEAT, SPARKS, OPEN FLAME OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION.

May be irritating to human skin and eyes and the user should be careful not to apply it to himself or other persons. Operators should wear nitrile rubber gloves and boots with a waterproof coat when applying the product. Wash all protective clothing after use.

If accidental skin contact occurs, wash the affected area immediately with soap and water. If irritation persists, seek medical advice and show the package leaflet or label to the doctor. If accidental eye exposure occurs, flush the eyes immediately with plenty of water and get medical attention.

Do not smoke or eat while handling the product. Wash hands after use. Use only in well-ventilated areas or outdoors.

Adverse reactions

Undesirable effects are not expected when the product is used at the recommended dose rate.

Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

The product can be administered to beef cows at any stage of pregnancy or lactation provided that the milk is not intended for human consumption. It will not affect the fertility of cows and bulls and can be given to all ages of animals including young calves. Please also refer to ‘Special warnings for each target species’.

Interactions

Not known. May be used concurrently with foot and mouth disease vaccine or clostridial vaccine.

Amounts to be administered and administration route

Dosage: 1 ml per 10 kg bodyweight (based on a recommended dosage level of 500 μg/kg bodyweight).

Administration: The formulation should be applied along the mid-line of the back in a narrow strip between the withers and tailhead. To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.

Dosing cup with Measure-Squeeze-Pour System (250 ml bottle and 1 litre pack)

The 250 ml pack contains one 25 ml dosing cup and one dip tube. The 1 litre pack contains one 60 ml dosing cup and one dip tube. Insert the dip tube into base of the dosing cup. Leave the "slotted end" of the dip tube exposed in the bottom of the bottle. Unscrew bottle cap from the top of the bottle. Screw the dosing cup onto the top of the bottle.

Measure: To select the correct dose rate, rotate the adjuster cap at the top of the cup in either direction to position the dose indicator to the weight of the animal you want to treat. When body weight is between markings, use the higher setting.

Squeeze the bottle gently to fill the dosing cup to the required dose. Release your grip and any excess will return to the bottle.

Pour: Apply the full dose by tipping and pouring along the back line of the animal until the dosing cup is empty. The dosing cup should not remain attached to the bottle when not in use. Detach the dosing cup after each use and replace the bottle cap.

Collapsible Pack (2.5 litre pack x 2 in a carton)

If the carton is opened for purpose of sale in single 2.5 L units, a package insert must be provided with each transaction. Connect the pour-on applicator to the collapsible pack as follows:

** An applicator compatible with the formulation is available for use with the 2.5 litre pack of IVOMEC Pour-On. Other applicators may be incompatible with the formulation, resulting in locking, incorrect dosage and leakage.

Overdose

No sign of toxicity appeared in trials up to 5 mg/kg (10 times the recommended dose rate). No antidote has been identified.

Withdrawal periods

Meat and offal: 15 days.

Do not use in cows producing milk for human consumption. Do not use in non-lactating dairy cows including pregnant heifers within 60 days of calving.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Ivomec Pour-On For Cattle, including answers from our team.

15 June 2018 at 2:58pm

Can it be used in the wet?

F Johnston

I want to use Ivomec pour on with cattle when they are gathered for a TB test, but the forecast is giving rain. Can I still use it even in the rain?

  • Veterinary Advisor

Yes, thats fine. Rainfall before or after treatment will not affect the efficacy of the Ivomec.

8 April 2017 at 7:55am

Eprinex

Sharon Staple

Is this product the same as eprinex?

  • Veterinary Advisor

EPRINEX is the new endectocide from Merial, developed by the scientists who discovered IVOMEC. It is based on a new molecule, eprinomectin, which gives it greater potency, killing even more species of parasites than ivermectin (Ivomec). This also means that EPRINEX is able to kill more worms for longer than any other pour-on. Other unique properties of the product mean that it is the only endectocide with a zero milk withdrawal period and it can be used in all weathers, including heavy rain.

Use on horses

dean

can I use ivomec pour on on horses

  • Non-Executive Director

This is not licensed or recommended. It has been tested and found not to be very effective unless you increase the dose quite a lot. Under-dosing will encourage the development of resistant strains of parasites. Generally it is not regarded as a good idea and we would not advise this product is used on horses.
