Mebadown Super Oral Suspension
Dosage and administration
1 ml of Mebadown Super per 5 kg bodyweight (ie 10 mg/kg bodyweight closantel and 15 mg/kg bodyweight mebendazole).
Give orally as a drench. Suitable for use with most types of standard drenching equipment. Shake container well before each use. Do not mix with other products.
To ensure the administration of the correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.
Suggested dosing schedule
The frequency of treatment will depend on the level of pasture contamination. Treat ewes prior to lambing, 6 weeks after lambing and prior to tupping to reduce pasture contamination. Dose lambs at regular intervals during high risk periods. Rams may be treated at any time as necessary.
H. contortus: For the treatment and prevention of inhibited, immature and adult stages of benzimidazole resistant and susceptible H. contortus, dose at lambing to help prevent pasture contamination by infected ewes. Treat all animals at 6 weekly intervals during high risk periods in summer and autumn.
All sheep on infested pasture should be dosed at regular intervals during the fluke season (Sept - Mar).
Since closantel has been shown to delay egg-laying for up to 13 weeks after artificial infection, treatment intervals of 10 - 12 weeks throughout the fluke season are recommended. In severe fluke seasons, more frequent dosing may be necessary.
The treatment of ewes with a single dose in the spring will contribute to reducing pasture contamination during the following summer and autumn.
Any sheep brought in from fluke areas should be dosed before they join the flock.
