Veterinary advice should be sought:
- On appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve adequate parasite control, and to reduce the likelihood of anthelmintic resistance developing.
- If the product does not achieve the desired clinical effect, since other diseases, nutritional disturbances or anthelmintic resistance may be involved.
To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. Occasionally at the recommended dose cattle may show signs of lip-licking and slight muscle tremor. Do not mix with other products.
