Studies conducted in the U.S.A. have demonstrated the safety margin for ivermectin. Based on plasma levels, the topically applied formulation is expected to be at least as well tolerated by breeding animals as is the subcutaneous formulation which had no effect on breeding performance.
For topical use only.
Ivermectin has been associated with adverse reactions in sensitive dogs; therefore, Ivermectin Pour-On (generic) for Cattle is not recommended for use in species other than cattle.
Measuring device included.
Keep out of the reach of children.
Store at 20°-25°C (68°-77°F), excursions permitted between 15° and 30°C (between 59° and 86°F). Brief exposure to temperatures up to 40°C (104°F) may be tolerated provided the mean kinetic temperature does not exceed 25°C (77°F); however, such exposure should be minimized. Keep container tightly closed when not in use and protect from light.
Cloudiness in the formulation may occur when Ivermectin Pour-On (generic) for Cattle is stored at temperatures below 32°F. Allowing to warm at room temperature will restore the normal appearance without affecting efficacy.
Antiparasitic activity of ivermectin will be impaired if the formulation is applied to areas of the skin with mange scabs or lesions, or with dermatosis or adherent materials, e.g., caked mud or manure.
Flammable. Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame and other sources of ignition.
Dosage: The dose rate is 1 ml for each 22 lb of body weight. The formulation should be applied along the topline in a narrow strip extending from the withers to the tailhead.
Each 5 ml will treat 110 lb body weight. When body weight is between marking, use the next higher 5 ml increment.
Ivermectin Pour-On (generic) for Cattle controls horn flies Haematobia irritans for up to 28 days after dosing. For best results, Ivermectin Pour-On (generic) for Cattle should be part of a parasite control program for both internal and external parasites based on the epidemiology of these parasites. Consult your veterinarian or an entomologist for the most effective timing of applications.
Ivermectin Pour-On (generic) for Cattle effectively controls all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For the most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble fly) season. While this is not peculiar to ivermectin, destruction of Hypoderma larvae (cattle grubs) at the period when these grubs are in vital areas may cause undesirable host-parasite reactions. Killing Hypoderma lineatum when it is in the esophageal tissues may cause bloat; killing H. bovis when it is in the vertebral canal may cause staggering or paralysis. Cattle should be treated either before or after these stages of grub development.
Cattle treated with Ivermectin Pour-On (generic) for Cattle at the end of the fly season may be re-treated with Ivermectin Pour-On (generic) for Cattle during the winter without danger of grub-related reactions. For further information and advice on a planned parasite control program, consult your veterinarian.
Cattle must not be treated within 48 days of slaughter for human consumption. Because a withdrawal time in milk has not been established, do not use in female dairy cattle of breeding age. A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
Studies indicate that when ivermectin comes in contact with the soil, it readily and tightly binds to the soil and becomes inactive over time. Free ivermectin may adversely affect fish or certain aquatic organisms. Do not permit cattle to enter lakes, streams or ponds for at least six hours after treatment. Do not contaminate water by direct application or by the improper disposal of drug containers. Dispose of containers in an approved landfill or by incineration.
