For administration to cattle weighing between 100 kg and 400 kg at the time the bolus is given.

Designed for dosing prior to turnout of cattle in their second grazing season. In grazing cattle, the device will deliver five doses of oxfendazole for the treatment of both adult and immature gastro-intestinal roundworms, lungworms and tapeworms at regular intervals of approximately three weeks during a period of approximately fifteen weeks, the first dose being released around three weeks after administration.

The device thus delivers a programmed therapeutic anthelmintic dosing regime over a period of approximately fifteen weeks.

Oxfendazole is an established treatment for:

Gastro-intestinal roundworms: Ostertagia, Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Nematodirus, Cooperia, Capillaria, Oesophagostomum, Chabertia, Trichuris.

Lungworms: Dictyocaulus viviparus.

Tapeworms: Moniezia, heads and segments.

At the recommended dose rate in cattle, oxfendazole is effective against inhibited/arrested larvae of Cooperia and usually effective against inhibited/arrested larvae of Ostertagia.

It is also ovicidal against nematode eggs.

Administer orally using the Autoworm Bolus Applicator which delivers the bolus directly into the top of the gullet.

When using the Autoworm Bolus Applicator, insert the bolus into the balling gun with the metal end weight innermost.

Bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible. One bolus should be administered to each animal being turned out to pasture for the first or second grazing season. Alternatively one bolus may be administered later in the season - ideally approximately three weeks before the first anthelmintic dose is normally required, or approximately one week before a move to pasture which has previously been contaminated by worm eggs.

Lungworm infestations, which develop during the active life of the bolus and are present at the time of pulsing will be controlled by oxfendazole. Under conditions of very heavy larval challenge, clinical signs of lungworm can become evident within 10-14 days of picking up an infection. Therefore, if clinical signs of lungworm occur in treated animals they should be dosed immediately with an appropriate anthelmintic. Lungworm infestations can also sometimes develop during the active life of the bolus.

Cattle (meat): 6 months

Milk: not for use in cattle producing milk for human consumption, nor for cattle within six months of an expected calving date which precedes the production of milk for human consumption.
