Dosage and administration
Dosage: 1ml per 50 kg bodyweight by subcutaneous injection (based on a recommended dosage level of 200µg of ivermectin and 2mg of clorsulon per kg bodyweight). For example:
Bodyweight (kg)
Dose volume
Doses per 50ml pack
Doses per 250ml pack
Doses per 500ml pack
Up to 50
Over 300kg give 1ml per 50kg bodyweight.
To ensure a correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, to avoid under- or over-dosing, they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly. Inject only by the subcutaneous route.
Divide doses in excess of 10ml between different injection sites.
The timing of treatment should be based on epidemiological factors and should be customised for each individual farm. A dosing program should be established by a qualified professional person.
A sterile 17 gauge ½ inch (15-20 mm) needle is recommended.
Different injection sites should be used for other parenteral products administered concurrently. When using the 500 ml pack size use only automatic syringe equipment. For the 50 ml pack size, use of a multidose syringe is recommended.
The product should be administered under the loose skin in front of or behind the shoulder.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
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.
Special warnings
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.
