Selenium and cobalt are included in Albex 2.5% SC as nutritional supplements and are not intended to be used therapeutically. Administration of ionophores to lambs has been shown to enhance selenium bioavailability. Concurrent administration of ionophores and Albex 2.5% SC may therefore lead to an increased risk of selenium toxicity.
The use of Albex 2.5% SC in breeding bulls or pregnant cattle is not expected to interfere with their reproductive performance. Cattle suffering from severe lung damage due to heavy lungworm infestation may continue to cough for some weeks after treatment. The product should only be used in areas where deficiencies of selenium and cobalt are likely to occur. In cases of doubt, consult a veterinary surgeon.
