  • Sarcoptes scabiei var. suis.

IVOMEC Injection for Pigs may also be used as an aid in control of adult whipworm (Trichuris suis).


Dosage & Administration

  • 1 ml per 33 kg bodyweight (based on a recommended dosage rate of 300 micrograms ivermectin per kg bodyweight).
  • |Injected subcutaneously into the neck.
  • The injection may be given with any standard automatic or single-dose or hypodermic syringe. Use of 17 gauge x ½ inch needle is suggested.
  • Replace with a fresh sterile needle after every 10 to 12 animals.
  • Injection of wet or dirty animals is not recommended.
  • Syringes must be filled from the vial through a dry, sterile draw-off needle that has been placed in the vial stopper.
  • Vial stoppers must not be broached more than 20 times.
  • In young pigs, especially those weighing under 16kg for which less than 0.5ml of the product is indicated, dosing accuracy is important. The use of a syringe that can accurately deliver increments of 0.1ml is recommended.
  • For piglets weighing less than 16kg give 0.1ml/3kg. When treating pigs of less than 16kg seek veterinary advice regarding the use of 1ml disposable syringes graduated in increments of 0.1ml. 

Recommended Treatment Programme

Breeding Animals 

At the time of initiating any parasite control programme, it is important to treat all breeding animals in the herd. After the initial treatment use regularly as follows:

  • Sows: Treat 7-14 days prior to farrowing
  • Gilts: Treat 7-14 days prior to service Treat 7-14 days prior to farrowing
  • Boars: Boars are an important source of infestation of mange. Treat at least twice a year.

Arrivals and transfers: Treat on arrival and isolate for 7-10 days before mixing with the rest of the herd.

The above programme is a guide for effective parasite control using IVOMEC Injection for Pigs. Alternatively, control can be achieved by treating the whole herd at six monthly intervals.


  • Treat before placement in clean quarters.

Note (1) For effective mange control, care must be taken to prevent reinfestation from exposure to untreated animals or contaminated facilities. Note (2) Since louse eggs are unaffected by ivermectin and may take up to three weeks to hatch, re-treatment may be necessary.


Pig meat: 19 days.
