Contra-indications

This product is formulated only for topical application to beef and dairy cattle, including lactating dairy cattle. Do not use in other animal species. Do not administer orally or by injection. Do not apply to areas of the backline covered with mud or manure.

Special warnings for each target species

The details provided in the ‘Overdose’ section apply.

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 bodyweight, 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.

To date no resistance to eprinomectin (a macrocyclic lactone) has been reported within the EU. However resistance to other macrocyclic lactones has been reported in parasite species in cattle within the EU. Therefore, 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.

Special precautions for use in animals

Not to be used in other species; avermectins can cause fatalities in dogs.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the product

Operators should wear rubber gloves when applying the product. If accidental skin contact occurs, wash the affected area immediately with soap and water. If accidental eye exposure occurs, flush eyes immediately with water. Do not smoke, eat or drink while handling the product.

Wash hands after use. Should clothing become contaminated, remove as soon as possible and launder before re-use. In the event of ingestion, wash out mouth with water and seek medical advice.

Adverse reactions

No undesirable effects have been identified when the product is used at the recommended dose rate.

Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

May be used in dairy cattle during all stages of lactation. Studies have demonstrated a wide safety margin. Studies conducted at three times the recommended use level of 0.5 mg eprinomectin/kg body weight had no adverse effect on breeding performance of cows or bulls.

Interactions

No interactions with other medicaments and no other forms of interactions are known.

Amounts to be administered and administration route

Administer only by topical application at the dose rate of 1 ml per 10 kg of body weight, corresponding to the recommended dose rate of 0.5 mg eprinomectin per kg body weight. The product should be applied topically by pouring along the backline in a narrow strip extending from the withers to the tailhead. The following dosing packs are available:

Squeeze-Measure-Pour System (250 ml and 1 litre bottles)

Attach the metering cup to the bottle. Set the dose by turning the top section of the cup to align the correct body weight with the pointer on the knurled cap. When body weight is between markings, use the higher setting. Hold the bottle upright and squeeze it to deliver a slight excess of the required dose as indicated by the calibration lines. By releasing the pressure, the dose automatically adjusts to the correct level. Tilt the bottle to deliver the dose. For the 1 litre bottle; when a 100 kg (10 ml) or 150 kg (15 ml) dose is required, turn the pointer to “STOP” before delivering the dose. The off (STOP) position will close the system between dosing.

Back-pack (2.5 and 5 litre packs)

Connect the dosing gun and draw-off tubing to the back-pack as follows. Attach the open end of the draw-off tubing to an appropriate dosing gun. Attach draw-off tubing to the cap with the stem that is included in the pack. Replace shipping cap with the cap with the draw-off tubing. Tighten the draw-off cap. Gently prime the dosing gun, checking for leaks.

Follow the dosing gun manufacturer’s directions for adjusting the dose and proper use and maintenance of the dosing gun and draw-off tubing.

Rainfall at anytime before or after treatment will not affect the efficacy of the product. The product is intended for use on cattle only. Do not use in other species.

To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.

Overdose

No signs of toxicity appeared when 8-week old calves were treated at up to 5x the therapeutic dose (2.5 mg eprinomectin/kg body weight) 3 times at 7 day intervals. One calf treated once at 10x the therapeutic dose (5 mg/kg body weight) in the tolerance study showed transient mydriasis. There were no other adverse reactions to treatment. No antidote has been identified.

Withdrawal periods

Meat may only be taken for human consumption from 15 days after the last treatment. There is no milk withdrawal period for lactating dairy cattle. Milk from cows may be used for human consumption at any time following treatment.
