When cattle have to graze on pasture contaminated with infective larvae of cattle nematodes, treatment with IVOMEC Super Injection for Cattle given at the recommended dose rate of 0.2mg per kg bodyweight controls re-infection with the following parasites of cattle:

Prolonged activity

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 Super 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.

Dosage and administration

Dosage

1 ml per 50 kg bodyweight (based on a recommended dosage level of 200 micrograms ivermectin and 2 mg clorsulon per kg bodyweight).

To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.

Administration

IVOMEC Super should be administered only by subcutaneous injection at the recommended dosage level of 1 ml/50 kg bodyweight (based on a dosage level of 200 micrograms ivermectin plus 2 mg clorsulon per kg bodyweight) under the loose skin in front of, or behind the shoulder. A sterile 17 gauge ½ inch (15-20 mm) needle is recommended. Replace with a fresh sterile needle after every 10-12 animals or sooner if the needle becomes soiled. Divide doses greater than 10 ml between two injection sites. Different injection sites should be used for other parenteral products administered concurrently.

When the temperature of the product is below 5°C, difficulty in administration may be encountered due to increased viscosity. Warming the product and injection equipment to about 15°C will greatly increase the ease with which the product can be injected.

When using the 200 ml, 500 ml and 1000 ml pack sizes, use only automatic syringe equipment. For the 50 ml pack size, use of a multidose syringe is recommended.

IVOMEC Super Injection for Cattle can be administered to beef cows at any stage of pregnancy or lactation provided that the milk is not intended for human consumption. IVOMEC Super Injection for Cattle will not affect the fertility of cows and bulls and can be given to all ages of animals including young calves.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

For animal treatment only.

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:-

- Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.

- Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of bodyweight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any).

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 product 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.

This product is not for intravenous or intramuscular use. Do not smoke, eat or drink while handling the product.

Wash hands after use.

Take care to avoid self-injection: the product may cause local irritation and/or pain at the injection site.

IVOMEC Super Injection for Cattle is a low-volume product registered for use only in beef cattle and non-lactating dairy cattle. It should not be used in any other species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may occur.

Transitory discomfort has been observed in some cattle following subcutaneous administration. A low incidence of soft tissue swelling at the injection site has been observed. These reactions disappeared without treatment.
