Do not underdose. Ensure each animal receives a complete dose based on a current body weight. Underdosing may result in ineffective treatment, and encourage the development of parasite resistance.
NOTE: Careful weight estimates are essential for proper performance of this product. Prepare solutions as needed. However, excess solutions may be stored at up to 25°C in clean closed containers for up to 90 days without loss of anthelmintic activity.
Cattle and sheep maintained under conditions of constant helminth exposure may require treatment within 2 to 4 weeks after the first treatment.
RESIDUE WARNING: Do not administer to cattle within 48 hours of slaughter for food. Do not administer to sheep within 72 hours of slaughter for food. To prevent residues in milk, do not administer to dairy animals of breeding age.
CAUTION: Muzzle foam may be observed. However, this reaction will disappear within a few hours. If this condition persists, a veterinarian should be consulted. Follow recommended dosage carefully. Consult a veterinarian before using in severely debilitated animals.
OTHER WARNINGS: Parasite resistance may develop to any dewormer, and has been reported for most classes of dewormers.
Treatment with a dewormer used in conjunction with parasite management practices appropriate to the geographic area and the animal(s) to be treated may slow the development of parasite resistance.
Fecal examinations or other diagnostic tests and parasite management history should be used to determine if the product is appropriate for the herd/flock, prior to the use of any dewormer. Following the use of any dewormer, effectiveness of treatment should be monitored (for example, with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test or another appropriate method).
A decrease in a drug’s effectiveness over time as calculated by fecal egg count reduction tests may indicate the development of resistance to the dewormer administered. Your parasite management plan should be adjusted accordingly based on regular monitoring.
STORAGE: Store at 20 °C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F), excursions permitted between 15°C and 30°C (59°F and 86°F).
