Description

Albex 2.5% w/v SC Oral Suspension for Cattle and Sheep.

Uses:
Albex 2.5% SC is a broad spectrum multi-purpose anthelmintic for the control of mature and developing immature forms of gastro-intestinal roundworms, lungworms, tapeworms and adult liver fluke in sheep and cattle. The product is also ovicidal against fluke and roundworm eggs. The product also contains selenium and cobalt as nutritional supplements.

In sheep it is active against benzimidazole-susceptible strains of the following species:

Roundworms: Ostertagia, Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Nematodirus (including N. battus), Chabertia and Oesophagostomum. It is usually effective against inhibited larvae of Ostertagia. Lungworms: Dictyocaulus filaria. Tapeworms: Moniezia spp. Adult liver fluke: Fasciola hepatica.

In cattle it is active against the following species:

Roundworms: Ostertagia, Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Nematodirus, Oesophagostomum, Bunostomum, Cooperia, and Strongyloides spp. It is usually effective against inhibited larvae of Cooperia and Ostertagia. Lungworms: Dictyocaulus viviparus. Tapeworms: Moniezia spp. Adult liver fluke: Fasciola hepatica.

Albex 2.5% SC is ovicidal and will kill fluke and roundworm eggs, thus reducing pasture contamination.

Dosage and administration:
For oral administration only. To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. Estimate bodyweight accurately.
