Claim 1: As an aid in the removal and control of mature gastrointestinal nematode infections caused by the following parasites: Stomach worms (Haemonchus placei, Ostertagia ostertagi, Trichostrongylus axei). Small intestinal worms (Cooperia spp., Trichostrongylus colubriformis, Nematodirus spp.) and large intestinal worms (Oesophagostomum radiatum).

Level of Drug:

10,000 mg/kg (1.0%) in the complete feed.

Directions:

This medicated feed is to be fed at the rate of 0.1 kg per 100 kg of body weight. Optimum results are obtained by fasting cattle overnight and then feeding the calculated amount of medicated feed the following morning by thoroughly mixing it with one-half of the daily regular ration. Resume normal feeding when the medicated feed is all consumed. Separate cattle by size into different pens for treatment. Sufficient trough space must be provided so that each animal obtains the full amount of medication that is required for proper dosage. Water should be available to cattle during the fasting and treatment periods.

Note:

  1. A microscopic fecal examination should be performed by a veterinarian or diagnostic laboratory prior to worming for a diagnosis as to the presence of gastrointestinal parasitism.
  2. For Ostertagia infections, treatment should be repeated at 2 to 3 week intervals to remove those mature parasites that survived previous treatment in an immature stage.

Warning:

Treated animals must not be slaughtered for use food for at least 30 days after the latest treatment with this drug.

Caution:

  1. Consult a veterinarian before using in severely debilitated animals.
  2. Do not mix in feeds containing pellet binding agents with the exception of Lignosol.

Note:

  1. A microscopic fecal examination should be performed by a veterinarian or diagnostic laboratory prior to worming for a diagnosis as to the presence of gastrointestinal parasitism.
