Supaverm Oral Suspension
Dosage and administration
1 ml of Supaverm per 5 kg bodyweight (i.e. 10 mg/kg bodyweight closantel and 15 mg/kg bodyweight mebendazole).
Give orally as a drench by careful administration with a drenching gun. Suitable for use with most types of standard drenching 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. Shake container well before each use.
Do not mix with other products.
Suggested dosing schedule
The frequency of treatment will depend on the level of pasture contamination. A suggested programme is to 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.
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.
