Do not use this product intravenously or intramuscularly.
Animec Super Injection is a low volume product authorised for use in cattle. It must not be used in other species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may occur, especially Collies, Old English Sheepdogs and related breeds and crosses. Do not use in animals with a known sensitivity to the active ingredient or to any of the excipients.
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.
Special precautions for use in animals
This product does not contain any antimicrobial preservative - swab septum before removing each dose.
To avoid secondary reactions due to the death of Hypoderma larvae in the oesophagus or the spine, it is recommended to administer the product at the end of the period of fly activity and before the larvae reach their resting sites: seek professional advice on the correct timing of treatment.
Divide doses in excess of 10 ml between different injection sites and use different sites to those used for other parenteral medications.
