Ivomec Plus (Ivermectin and Clorsulon) Injection is to be given subcutaneously only. Animals should be appropriately restrained to achieve the proper route of administration. Use of a 16-gauge, 1/2 in. to 3/4 in. sterile needle is recommended. Inject the solution subcutaneously (under the skin) behind the shoulder. When using the 200 mL, 500 mL or 1000 mL pack size, use only automatic syringe equipment. Use sterile equipment and sanitize the injection site by applying a suitable disinfectant. Clean, properly disinfected needles should be used to reduce the potential for injection site infections. No special handling or protective clothing is necessary. The viscosity of the product increases in cool temperatures. Administering Ivomec Plus at temperatures of 5°C (41°F) or below may be difficult. Users can make dosing easier by warming both the product and injection equipment to about 15°C (59°F).
Dosage: 1 mL per 110 lb. (50kg) body weight.
When to treat for grubs:
Ivomec Plus effectively controls all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble fly) season. Destruction of Hypoderma larvae (cattle grubs) at the period when these grubs are in vital areas may cause undesirable host-parasite reactions including the possibility of fatalities. Hypoderma lineatum when it is in the tissue surrounding the esophagus (gullet) may cause bloat; killing H. bovis when it is in the vertebral canal may cause staggering or paralysis. These reactions are not specific to treatment with Ivomec Plus, but can occur with any successful treatment of grubs. Cattle should be treated either before or after stages of grub development. Consult your veterinarian concerning the proper time for treatment. Cattle treated with Ivomec Plus after the end of the heel fly season may be retreated with ivermectin during the winter for internal parasites.
