Dosing programme
Ewes and gimmers
Dose ewes 2–6 weeks before lambing and again soon after lambing to reduce the periparturient rise of roundworm eggs and control chronic fluke disease. On heavily stocked pastures, monthly treatments may be necessary until autumn. Otherwise treat prior to tupping and at housing.
Care should be taken not to exceed the recommended worm dose especially during the first month of pregnancy. Ewes should not be treated at the fluke and worm dose during tupping and until one month after the tups are removed.
Ensure careful handling if used near lambing time.
Lambs and wetherhoggs
Dosing of lambs for Nematodirus infection should be based on the likely severity of the challenge. Otherwise treat in late May and repeat at 3 week intervals until August. Dose at weaning and move to clean pasture. If clean pasture is unavailable, dose monthly until sold or until early winter.
Dose all sheep in August/September and repeat at 4–6 week intervals depending on the severity of the challenge. Treat all bought-in sheep before allowing to mix with flock.
