Ivermax Sheep Oral Drench Caution

Ivermax™ Sheep Oral Drench has been formulated specifically for use in sheep only. This product should not be used in other animal species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result.


Refrain from smoking and eating when handling. Avoid contact with eyes. Immediately wash hands and any spills on the skin with plenty of soap and water following use.


Store at controlled room temperature between 15° and 30°C (59°-86°F). Keep tightly closed, protect from light.

ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY: Studies indicate that when ivermectin comes in contact with the soil, it readily and tightly binds to the soil and becomes inactive over time. Free ivermectin may adversely affect fish and certain water-borne organisms on which they feed. Do not permit water runoff from feedlots to enter lakes, streams or ground water. Do not contaminate water by direct application or by the improper disposal of drug containers. Spills should be contained and soaked up with absorbent towels or into loose soil. Gloves should be worn to prevent skin exposure. All the collected materials (contaminated towels and soil), as well as all empty drug containers should be placed in an impervious film (plastic) bag and disposed of by incineration or in an approved landfill.


Do not treat sheep within 11 days of slaughter.
