of 1 ml per 50 kg bodyweight.

 

-  Each ml contains 10 mg of ivermectin sufficient to treat 50 kg of bodyweight of cattle and sheep.

-  Use of a sterile 17 gauge x 1/2 inch needle is suggested.

-  Replace with a fresh sterile needle after every 10 to 12 animals.

-  Injection of wet or dirty animals is not recommended.

-  For the treatment and control of sheep scab, two injections with a seven day interval are required to treat clinical signs of scab and to eliminate mites.

-  Sheep scab (Psoroptes ovis) is an extremely contagious external parasite of sheep. To ensure complete control great care must be taken to avoid re-infestation, as mites may be viable for up to 15 days off the sheep. It is important that all sheep which have been in contact with infected sheep are treated. Contact between treated, infected and untreated flocks must be avoided until at least seven days after treatment.

-  In sheep, treatment of psoroptic mange (sheep scab) with one injection is not recommended because, although clinical improvement may be seen, elimination of all mites may not occur.

-  The product is not for intravenous or intramuscular use.

-  The product is specifically for use in the target species. It should not be used in other species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may occur.
