Description

Depidex Drench 0.08% w/v Oral Solution for Sheep (Promo Pack)12.5L (5L x 2 & 2.5L x 1)

Uses:
For the treatment and control of gastrointestinal nematodes, lungworms and nasal bots of sheep.

Depidex Drench at the recommended dose rate of 200 mcg ivermectin per kg bodyweight effectively controls the following parasites of sheep.

Gastrointestinal worms (adult and immature)

Haemonchus contortus, Teladorsagia (Ostertagia) circumcincta, Trichostrongylus spp., Cooperia spp., Nematodirus spp., including N. battus, Strongyloides papillosus, Oesophagostomum spp., and adult Chabertia ovina.

Inhibited larval stages and benzimidazole resistant strains of H. contortus and Teladorsagia (Ostertagia) circumcincta are also controlled.

Lungworms (adult and immature)

Dictyocaulus filaria.

Nasal bot (all larval stages)

Oestrus ovis.

Dosage and administration:

Dosage:
2.5 ml per 10 kg bodyweight (based on a recommended dosage of 200 ug ivermectin per kg bodyweight).

Administration:
Give as an oral drench. It is recommended that a suitably calibrated dosing gun is used to allow accurate dosing especially in young animals. To ensure administration of correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc:
Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:

- Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.

- Underdosing which may be due to underestimation of body weight, misadministration of the product or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any).

Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.

Resistance to ivermectin (an avermectin) has been reported in teladorsagia in sheep and goats within the EU and it is common in Haemonchus in sheep outside the EU. Therefore, the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.

Depidex Drench has been formulated specifically for use in sheep. It should not be used in other species, as adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs may occur. The product is not for intravenous or intramuscular use.

Some animals may cough slightly immediately after treatment. This is temporary occurrence and of no clinical consequence.

For animal treatment only. Do not mix with other products.

Keep out of the reach and sight of children.

Do not smoke, drink or eat while handling the product. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. In case of accidental eye or skin contact, wash the affected area with clean running water immediately. Seek medical attention if irritation persists. Wash hands after use.

Withdrawal Periods:
Meat - 14 days
Milk - Do not use in animals producing milk for human consumption.

Pharmaceutical precautions:
Store below 25°C. Protect from light.

Packaging Quantities:
2.5 and 5 litre containers.
