Persistence of the effect in cattle:
The effect of the product preventing the spread of Haemonchus placei and Cooperia spp. will last 2 weeks, provided that the recommended dose of 1 ml per 50 kg live weight was administered. For Ostertagia ostertagi and Oesophagostomum radiatum the efficiency period is 21 days, and for Dictylocaulus viviarus, 28 days after treatment.

Nasal bot flies (all parasiting stages):
Psoroptes conmmunis var. ovis (1)
(1) When treating sheep against Psoroptes conmmunis, administer two injections within 7 days. A single administration may only reduce the number of the parasites, making the impression that mange was eradicated.

Hyostrongylus rubidus (adults and L4)
Oesophagostomum spp. (adults and L4)
Strongyloides ransomi (adults and somatic larvae)*
Metastrongylus spp. (adults)
Stephanurus dentatus (adults and L4)
The product does not act against lice egges, whose development takes 21 days. Thus their elimination may require repeated treatment.
Sarcoptes scabiei var. suis
* Administered to pregnant sows 7 –14 days before parturition, the product will efficiently prevent the transfer of S. ransomi from the sows to the piglet in milk.
Cattle, sheep, pigs.
Do not administer intravenously or intramuscularly.
Not to be administered during lactation and 28 days before labour in animals producing milk for human consumption.
Dosage and application
Recommended dose is 0.2 mg ivermectin per kg live weight (corresponding to 1 ml of the product per 50 kg live weight). Administer the product subcutaneously into loose skin in front of or behind the shoulder blade.
If the animals suffer from hypodermosis, treat the cattle as soon as possible after the warble attack.
Treatment of cattle affected by hypodermosis:
Ivermectin is efficient against all stages of subcutaneous warbles in cattle, the time of treatment, however, is a critical factor. Cattle should be treated immediately when the warble attack is over. In fact, action against the larvae while they are present in the animal's vital organs may induce adverse reactions in the host. Action against Hypoderma lineatum when this parasite is present in the tissues of the oesophagus may result in tympanites. Action against Hypoderma bovis when this parasite is present in the vertebral channel may result in dizziness or paralysis. Thus, cattle should be treated before or after the finish of those developmental forms.
Recommended dose is 0.2 mg ivermectin per kg live weight (corresponding to 0.5 ml of the product per 25 kg live weight). Administer the product subcutaneously into the loose skin between the shoulders. When administering the product to sheep before shearing, make sure that the needle penetrated the wool and skin before injecting the dose.
If treating the animals against psoroptic mange, repeat the treatment in 7 days.
Recommended dose is 0.3 mg ivermectin per kg live weight (corresponding to 1 ml of the product per 33 kg live weight). The product must be administered subcutaneously, in the neck area, at the recommended dose.
