Description

Albex 10% w/v Oral Suspension for Cattle and Sheep.


Uses:
Albex 10% 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 cattle and sheep. The product is also ovicidal against fluke and roundworm eggs.

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

Cattle
For the control of roundworms, lungworms, tapeworms and fluke and roundworm eggs, 7.5 mg albendazole per kg bodyweight which is equivalent to 7.5 ml Albex 10% per 100 kg bodyweight.

For the additional treatment of adult liver fluke (chronic fascioliasis) in cattle, 10 mg albendazole per kg bodyweight, which is equivalent to 10 ml Albex 10% per 100 kg bodyweight.

Sheep
For the control of roundworms, lungworms, tapeworms and fluke and roundworm eggs, 5 mg albendazole per kg bodyweight which is equivalent to 1.0 ml Albex 10% per 20 kg bodyweight.

For the additional treatment of adult liver fluke (chronic fascioliasis) in sheep, 7.5 mg albendazole per kg bodyweight, which is equivalent to 1.5 ml Albex 10% per 20 kg bodyweight.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc:
Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient.

Do not dose ewes at the `fluke and worm dose' (7.5 mg/kg) during tupping or for 1 month after removing the rams. Can be safely used during lactation.

Withdrawal periods:
Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment. Cattle may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 14 days from the last treatment. Sheep may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 5 days from the last treatment. Milk for human consumption must not be taken during treatment. Milk for human consumption may be taken from cows only after 60 hours from the last treatment. Do not use in sheep producing milk for human consumption.

Operator warnings:
Wash hands after use. Avoid direct contact with the product. Wear suitable protective clothing including impermeable rubber gloves. In the event of accidental eye exposure, flush eye thoroughly with running water. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. In the event of accidental skin exposure, wash the effected area with soap and water. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

Environmental warnings:
DANGEROUS to fish and aquatic life. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with product or used containers. Any unused veterinary medicinal product or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal products should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.

General precautions:
For animal treatment only. Keep out of the reach of children. Care must be taken not to damage the pharyngeal region, particularly in sheep, when dosing.

Intensive use or misuse of anthelmintics can give rise to resistance. To reduce this risk, dosing programmes should be discussed with your Veterinary Surgeon.

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 results strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class having a different mode of action should be used. Resistance, to benzimidazoles has been reported in Teladorsagia Haemonchus, Cooperia and Trichostrongylus species in small ruminants in a number of countries, including the EU. Resistance to albendazole has been reported in Cooperia and Teladorsagia species in cattle in developed countries such as New Zealand. 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.
