Product Description

at is Ivomec?

Ivomec is a parasiticide used to treat and control internal and external parasites such as gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, grubs, sucking lice, and mange mites in cattle. It’s also used to treat and control gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, lice, and mange mites in swine.
 
For: Cattle and Swine

 

Benefits:
Treats and controls parasites and mange
Kills many types of parasites in a single dose, including internal and external parasites, and liver flukes

 

How it works: 
Ivermectin, the active ingredient in Ivomec, works by disrupting nerve impulses in parasites. It binds to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels which occur in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells which leads to an increase in the permeability of the cell membrane, thereby paralyzing and killing the invaders.

Cautions: 
On rare occasion, tissue swelling can occur at the injection area. Observe cattle for injection site reactions which may be due to infection. Consult your veterinarian if any swelling occurs. Do not treat cattle within 35 days of slaughter. Do not treat swine within 18 days of slaughter. The FDA has received reports of adverse reactions in dogs receiving the drug Comfortis (spinosad) concurrently with high, extra-label doses of ivermectin. Dogs receiving extra-label doses of ivermectin to treat non-responsive demodectic mange and other conditions have developed signs of ivermectin toxicity.
