Ivomec Drench for Sheep Indications

IVOMEC® is indicated for the treatment of parasitic infestation due to:

Gastrointestinal Nematodes

Adult and immature forms of Haemonchus contortus(1), Ostertagia circumcincta(1), Trichostrongylus axei, T. colubriformis(1), Oesophagostomum columbianum and Cooperia curticei.

Ivomec Drench for Sheep Dosage And Administration

IVOMEC should be given as a single dose treatment. Administer orally at a dose of 2.5 mL of IVOMEC per 10 kg of body weight, with any standard drenching equipment which provides a consistent dose volume. Repeat treatment may be necessary when reexposure to parasite infection occurs.

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. Drug containers and any residual contents should be disposed of safely (eg. by burying or incinerating) as free ivermectin may adversely affect fish or certain water-borne organisms.

Ivomec Drench for Sheep Caution

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.
