Contains

A macrocyclic lactone (ML) and a levamisole (Lev) (7 g/L eprinomectin and 223 g/L levamisole phosphate). This means that the product contains two different drench actives that work in different ways to kill parasites.

The trace minerals selenium (2.8 mg/mL) and vitamin B12 (1.4 mg/mL).

Indications

INTERNAL WORMS: For the treatment and control of susceptible roundworms, including Ostertagia, Cooperia, and lungworm. Ostertagia and Cooperia larvae that are hibernating in the gut (L4) will also be killed with this product.

PASTURE SELENIUM AND COBALT DEFICIENCY: Selenium is an essential trace mineral, critical for animal growth, reproduction, and immunity. Cobalt is also an essential trace mineral. Ruminants take up cobalt in their diet which is converted to vitamin B12 by rumen microbes. Deficiency in pasture cobalt leads to vitamin B12 deficiency in livestock. Vitamin B12 is required for two major enzyme pathways in ruminants, crucial in the production of energy and DNA. It’s also vital in many functions of the animal’s body, supporting growth, reproduction, and milk production.

ECTOPARASITES: There is no lice claim for this product. When sucking lice suck blood from a treated animal they will ingest the drug in the blood. However, as biting lice do not suck blood they don’t come into contact with the drug when a product is injected into an animal (as the product circulates in the blood) – no injectable product can fully control lice.

If you’re drenching with an oral or an injectable product it may be necessary to treat for lice with a pour-on lousicide at least once a year.

Advantages

  • Dual active internal parasite control – necessary for R1s and R2s in New Zealand farming conditions
  • Trial work in New Zealand shows excellent efficacy
  • Safe to use in calves over 88 kg
  • 24/7 technical support
  • Vitamin B12 and selenium dosed at an appropriate kg dose rate
Recommended use

Young cattle (<18 months) should always be drenched with a product containing at least two different drench family active ingredients to make sure the important internal worms are killed. Drenching should be started 4-6 weeks following the likely ingestion of significant larvae from pasture – this is usually 4-6 weeks after weaning. Depending on parasite challenge, drenching should then continue every 4-6 weeks until the animals are at least 18 months of age.

Useful Information

DIRECTIONS: Estimate weights as accurately as possible or better still weigh each animal before injecting and adjust dose accordingly. Do not under-dose as this can increase the chance of resistance developing. Check the accuracy of dose guns regularly. Change the injection needle regularly.

STORAGE: Prior to use, store in a fridge between 2 °C and 8 °C. Storing in the fridge reduces the natural breakdown of the active ingredients in the product to maintain excellent efficacy and quality right up to the expiry date. However, this product is not as sensitive to temperature as most vaccines if left at room temperature for a short period of time. Once the product is opened it doesn’t have to be refrigerated anymore but it must be used within 3 months and may be stored at room temperature (below 25 °C).

PRECAUTIONS: Don’t use in animals that are stressed or dehydrated – they are more likely to show signs of levamisole toxicity. Do not use at the same time as any other selenised fertiliser, prill or product without consulting a veterinarian. Get advice from a veterinarian if you are unsure whether to supplement with minerals.
