Levamisole is a broad-spectrum anthelmintic and is effective against the following nematode infections in cattle: Stomach Worms: Haemonchus, Ostertagia, Trichostrongylus. Intestinal Worms: Trichostrongylus, Cooperia, Nematodirus, Bunostomum, Oesophagostomum, Chabertia . Lungworms: Dictyocaulus .
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:
Inject subcutaneously in the mid-neck region at the rate of 2 ml per 100 lbs. of body weight. It is recommended that not more than 10 mL be injected at one site. Consult a veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism. The maturation of some helminthes species may be arrested at a pre-adult stage when adult worm populations are heavy. Cattle that are severely parasitized or maintained under conditions of constant helminth exposure may require retreatment with two 2 to four 4 weeks after the first treatment. Thoroughly clean and disinfect syringes and needles by boiling in water for 20 minutes. Use 14 or 16 gauge one-half 1/2 to one 1 inch needles. Do not remove the rubber stopper from the bottle, but clean and disinfect it with 70% alcohol. With the syringe attached to a needle, insert the needle through the rubber stopper and withdraw the required dose. The proper method of injection site preparation is swabbing with 70% alcohol or other suitable disinfectant, and the proper method of administration is under a fold of skin in the middle neck region. A clean sterile needle should be used for each animal to avoid the spread of infection.
Careful cattle weight estimates are essential for the proper performance of the product. It is recommended that Levamisole be injected in cattle in stocker or feeder condition only. Cattle nearing slaughter weight and condition may show objectionable reactions at the site of injection. An occasional animal in stocker or feeder flesh may show swelling at the injection site. The swelling will subside in 7-14 days and is not more severe than that observed from commonly used vaccines and bacterins.
Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. Do not administer to cattle within seven 7 days of slaughter for food to avoid tissue residues. To prevent residues in milk, do not administer to dairy animals of breeding age.
Store in cool and dry place protecting from light.
