Bovex 2.265% Oral Suspension.
Bovex 2.265% is a broad spectrum worm drench for cattle and sheep for the control of mature and immature forms of gastro-intestinal roundworms, lungworms and tapeworms. The product is ovicidal against nematode eggs.
In cattle it is active against the following species:
Roundworms: Ostertagia, Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Nematodirus, Cooperia, Capillaria, Oesophagostomum, Chabertia and Trichuris. Lungworms: Dictyocaulus. Tapeworms: Moniezia. It is usually effective in the control of Type II Ostertagiasis.
In sheep it is active against benzimidazole susceptible strains of the following species:
Roundworms: Ostertagia, Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Nematodirus (including N. battus), Cooperia, Oesophagostomum and Chabertia (also provides useful control of Trichuris). Lungworms: Dictyocaulus. Tapeworms: Moniezia.
Dosage and administration
For oral administration only using properly calibrated dosing equipment. Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible before calculating the dosage.
4.5 mg oxfendazole per kg bodyweight i.e. 5 ml per 25 kg bodyweight.
5 mg oxfendazole per kg bodyweight i.e. 1 ml per 4.5 kg bodyweight.
To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient.
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 benzimidazoles (which include oxfendazole) 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.
Intensive use or misuse of anthelmintics can give rise to resistance. To reduce this risk, dosing programmes should be discussed with your Veterinary Surgeon.
