Consult Your Veterinarian For Assistance In The Diagnosis, Treatment, And Control Of Parasitism.
The maturation of some helminth species may be arrested at pre-adult stage when adult worm populations are heavy.
Cattle that are severely parasitized or maintained under conditions of constant helminth exposure may require retreatment with two to four weeks after the first treatment.
AdministrationThoroughly clean and disinfect syringes and needles by boiling in water for twenty minutes. Use 14 or 16 gauge 1/2 to 1 inch needles.
Do not remove rubber stopper from the bottle, but clean and disinfect it with 70% alcohol. With syringe attached to needle, insert needle through the rubber stopper and withdraw the required dose.
The proper method of injection site preparation by swabbing with 70% alcohol or other suitable disinfectant, and the proper method of administration under a fold of skin in the mid-neck region are demonstrated below. A clean, sterile needle should be used for each animal to avoid spreading infection.
Levamisole Phosphate CautionCareful cattle weight estimates are essential for proper performance of this product. It is recommended that Levamisole Phosphate be injected only in cattle in stocker or feeder condition. Cattle nearing slaughter weight and condition may show objectionable reactions at the site of injection. An occasional animal in stocker or feeder flesh may show swelling at the injection site. The swelling will subside in 7 to 14 days and is no more severe than that observed from commonly used vaccines and bacterins.
The mid-neck region is the preferred injection site. Always use sterile needles and syringes. Non-sterile equipment may cause abscesses at the site of injection. Contents should be used as soon as possible after the seal has been broken. It is recommended that the cap be wiped with alcohol prior to withdrawing solution. Also, skin at injection site should be swabbed with alcohol to avoid infection.
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.
Experience under field conditions indicates that stressful procedures such as vaccination, castration, dehorning, concurrent exposure to cholinesterase-inhibiting drugs, pesticides, or chemicals, may increase the risk associated with the use of this product. Such concurrent stress should be avoided when using this product.
Consult veterinarian before using in severely debilitated animals.
