Noromectin Drench for Sheep Indications
Noromectin Drench is indicated for the treatment of parasitic infestation due to:
GASTROINTESTINAL NEMATODES: Adult and larval (L4) forms of Haemonchus contortus(1), Ostertagia circumcincta(1), Trichostrongylus axei, T. colubriformis(1), Oesophagostomum columbianum and Cooperia curticei.

LUNGWORM: Adult and larval (L4) forms of Dictyocaulus filaria.
NASAL BOT: All larval stages of Oestrus ovis.
(1)Includes known benzimidazole-resistant strains.
Dosage and Administration
Noromectin should be given as a single dose treatment. Administer orally at a dose of 2.5 mL of Noromectin per 10 kg of bodyweight, with any standard drenching equipment which provides a consistent dose volume. Repeat treatment may be necessary when re-exposure to parasite infection occurs.
Studies indicate that when ivermectin comes in contact with the soil, it readily and tightly binds to the soil and becomes inactive over time. Drug containers and any residual contents should be disposed of safely (e.g. by burying or incinerating) as free ivermectin may adversely affect fish or certain waterborne organisms.

Coughing, which usually lasts for only a few minutes, may occur in a small percentage of sheep immediately after treatment; this passing response is of no consequence.
Store below 25°C, away from heat.
