Description

Bimectin horse wormer contains ivermectin it is an oral paste and is apple flavoured to improve palatability, and may be useful for use in horses who are difficult to worm it treats large and small strongyles, lungworms, pinworms, ascarids, hairworms, large-mouth stomach worms, neck and intestinal threadworms and stomach bots.

Administer orally as a single dose rate to horses at the recommended dose level of 0.2mg ivermectin per kg of bodyweight. Each syringe delivers 120mg ivermectin, sufficient to treat 600kg of bodyweight.

Each weight marking on the syringe plunger will deliver sufficient paste to treat 100kg bodyweight. Unlock the knurled ring by making ¼ turn and slide the knurled ring up the plunger shaft so that the side nearest the barrel is at the prescribed weight marking. Turn the knurled ring ¼ turn to lock in place. Make sure the horse’s mouth contains no feed. Remove the plastic cap from the tip of the nozzle. Insert the syringe into the horse’s mouth at the interdental space. Advance the plunger as far as it will go, depositing the medication on the base of the tongue. Immediately raise the horse’s head for a few seconds after dosing.

Horses of all ages, including pregnant mares and breeding stallions, have been treated with no adverse effect. When administering to lactating females, residues of ivermectin could be present in the maternal milk, since no studies have been reported on the development of new born horses of the ingestion of this milk, it would be prudent not to feed very young animals with milk obtained from the mother.

Special warnings for each target species

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.
  • 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 tests(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 Parascaris equorum in horses in a number of countries, including 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.

    Adverse reactions

    Some horses carrying heavy infection of Onchocerca microfilariae have experienced oedema and pruritus following dosing, assumed to be the result of death of large numbers of microfilariae. These signs resolve within a few days but symptomatic treatment may be advisable.

    Special precautions for use

    (i) Precautions for use in animals

    Special warning for non-target species: The product has been formulated for use in horses only. Cats, Dogs, especially Collies, Old English Sheepdogs and related breed or crosses, and also turtles and tortoises may be adversely affected by the concentration of ivermectin in this product if they are allowed to ingest spilled paste or have access to used syringes.

    Parasite resistance to any particular class of anthehelminthic may develop following frequent, repeated use of an anthehelminthic of that class.

    (ii) Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

    Do not eat, drink or smoke while handling the product. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. If accidental skin contact occurs, wash the affected area immediately with soap and water. If accidental eye exposure occurs, flush the eyes immediately with water and, if necessary, get medical attention.

    Wash hands after use.

    Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

    Do not use in mares producing milk for human consumption.

    Interactions

    The effects of GABA agonists are increased by ivermectin.

    Amounts to be administered and administration route

    Administer orally as a single dose rate to horses at the recommended dose level of 0.2mg ivermectin per kilogram of bodyweight. Each syringe delivers 120mg ivermectin, sufficient to treat 600kg of bodyweight.

    To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible.

    If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under- or over-dosing.

    This is a single use product. Discard after use.

    Dosing Instructions:

    Each weight marking on the syringe plunger will deliver sufficient paste to treat 100kg bodyweight. Unlock the knurled ring by making ¼ turn and slide the knurled ring up the plunger shaft so that the side nearest the barrel is at the prescribed weight marking. Turn the knurled ring ¼ turn to lock in place. Make sure the horse’s mouth contains no feed. Remove the plastic cap from the tip of the nozzle. Insert the syringe into the horse’s mouth at the interdental space. Advance the plunger as far as it will go, depositing the medication on the base of the tongue. Immediately raise the horse’s head for a few seconds after dosing.

    The treatment schedule should be based on the local epidemiological situation.

    Overdose

    Mild transitory signs (slowed pupillary light response and depression) have been seen at a dose of 1.8mg/kg (9 times the recommended dose level). Other signs seen at higher doses includes mydriasis, ataxia, tremors, stupor, coma and death. The less severe signs have been transitory. No antidote has been identified; however, symptomatic therapy may be beneficial.

    Withdrawal periods

    Meat and offal 34 days.

    Do not use in mares producing milk for human consumption.

    Pharmacological particulars

    Pharmacotherapeutic group: Endectocide. ATC vet code QP54AA01.

    Ivermectin is a member of the macrocyclic lactone class of endectocides. Compounds of the class bind selectively and with high affinity to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels which occur in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells. This leads to an increase in the permeability of the cell membrane to chloride ions and hyperpolarization of the nerve or muscle cell, resulting in paralysis and death of the parasite. Compounds of this class may also interact with other ligand-gated chloride channels, such as those gated by the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).

    The margin of safety for compounds of this class is attributable to the fact that mammals do not have glutamate-gated chloride channels, the macrocyclic lactones have a low affinity for other mammalian ligand-gated chloride and they do not readily cross the blood-brain barrier.

    Pharmacokinetic Properties
    Following administration of Bimectin, ivermectin is rapidly absorbed to reach peak plasma concentration in several hours. This peak falls off gradually over several days. Ivermectin is eliminated primarily via the faeces. The highest residues are found in the fat.

    At a dose rate of 0.2mg ivermectin per kilogram of bodyweight, plasma levels of ivermectin reach a mean Cmax concentration of 40.44ng/ml and a mean Tmax at 8.35 hours. This peak falls off gradually to an average level of 3ng/ml at 10 days.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is this safe for a mare with foal?

    The product can be given to a mare once she has had the foal. Use during pregnancy should only be in accordance with a risk/benefit analysis by the responsible veterinary surgeon. 

    Is this suitable for Donkeys?

    No this is not licensed for donkeys, we advise using Eqvalan which has the same active ingredient and is licensed for donkeys. 

    What are the inactive ingredients?

    Ivermectin 1.87% w/w, Maize Oil, Polysorbate 80, Apple Flavour, Silica Colloidal Anhydrous.

    Can you put the wormer on its bum

    This is not recommended. If you are treating a pinworm infestation they are very hard to eradicate as they shed many eggs per day. Horses are best turned out as the eggs are UV sensitive and will die quicker. Any bedding or feed the horse has had access too should be disposed of and any shoves, brushes, rugs etc should be thoroughly cleaned. We suggest you worm with a Pyrantel wormer such as Strongid P every 4 weeks for 4-5 times. This should break the lifecycle or the pinworm. 

    Does this contain praziquantel ? Thanks

    No this contains ivermectin.
