Treatment and prevention of mixed infections of gastro-intestinal nematodes, respiratory nematodes and certain arthropod parasites in sheep.
Moxidectin is indicated for treatment of infections caused by moxidectin sensitive strains of:
Gastro-intestinal nematodes:
Haemonchus contortus (adults and L3)
Ostertagia (Teladorsagia) circumcincta (adults and L3, including inhibited larvae)
Trichostrongylus axei (adults)
Trichostrongylus colubriformis (adults and L3)
Nematodirus spathiger (adults)
Cooperia curticei (macmasteri) (adults)
Cooperia punctata (adults)
Oesophagostomum columbianum (L3)
Chabertia ovina (adults)
Respiratory tract nematodes:
Dictyocaulus filaria (adults)
Larvae of Diptera:
Oestrus ovis: L1, L2, L3
Mange mites:
Psoroptes ovis
The product has a persistent action and protects sheep against infection or re-infection with the following parasites for the period indicated:
Ostertagia (Teladorsagia) circumcincta
Haemonchus contortus
Trichostrongylus colubriformis
Psoroptes ovis
Persistent efficacy periods have not been established for parasite species other than those included in the list above. Therefore, re-infection of animals on pasture contaminated by parasites other than these remains possible before the 44-day minimum persistency period demonstrated for specific species.
