Cooperia pectinata  
Cooperia punctata  
Haemonchus placei  
Trichostrongylus axei  
Trichostrongylus colubriformis

Strongyloides papillosus    
Nematodirus helvetianus

Trichuris spp.    
Dictyocaulus viviparus  
Eye Worms:      
Thelazia spp.    
  Adult Stages
Hypoderma bovis

Mange Mites:      
Psoroptes bovis  
Sarcoptes scabiei var. bovis  
Sucking Lice:      
Linognathus vituli  
Haematopinus eurysternus  
Solenopotes capillatus  

IVOMEC Classic Injection for Cattle and Sheep may also be used as an aid in the control of biting lice (Damalinia bovis) and the mange mite (Chorioptes bovis), but complete elimination may not occur. Persistent Activity in Cattle: When cattle have to graze on pasture contaminated with infective larvae of cattle nematodes, treatment with IVOMEC Classic Injection for Cattle and Sheep at the recommended dose rate of 1ml per 50kg bodyweight controls re-infection with the following parasites of cattle:

  Prolonged Activity
Dictyocaulus viviparus up to 28 days
Ostertagia ostertagi up to 21 days
Oesophagostomum radiatum up to 21 days
Cooperia spp. up to 14 days
Trichostrongylus axei up to 14 days
Haemonchus placei up to 14 days

To obtain optimal benefit from the persistent activity of IVOMEC Classic Injection for Cattle and Sheep for grazing animals, it is recommended that calves which are set-stocked in the first grazing season should be treated 3, 8 and 13 weeks after the day of turn-out. This can protect the animals from parasitic gastro-enteritis and lungworm disease throughout the grazing season, provided they are set-stocked, all the calves are included in the programme and that no untreated cattle are added to the pasture. Treated animals should always be monitored according to good husbandry practices.

Gastrointestinal Roundworms:      
Ostertagia circumcincta
O. trifurcata  
Haemonchus contortus
Trichostrongylus axei    
T. colubriformis  
T. vitrinus    
Cooperia curticei  
Oesophagostomum columbianum  
O. venulosum    
Nematodirus filicollis  
Chabertia ovina  
Trichuris ovis    
Dictyocaulus filaria  
Protostrongylus rufescens    
  Adult Stages  
Nasal Bots:      
Oestrus ovis    
Mange Mites:      
Psoroptes ovis  

For the treatment and control of sheep scab Psoroptes ovis, two injections with a seven-day interval are required to treat clinical signs of scab and to eliminate mites. Benzimidazole-resistant strains of Haemonchus contortus and Ostertagia circumcincta are also controlled.

IVOMEC Classic Injection for Cattle and Sheep should be given only by subcutaneous injection, using aseptic precautions, at the recommended dosage level of 200 mcg ivermectin per kg bodyweight under the loose skin in front of, or behind, the shoulder in cattle and in the neck in sheep. To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. When treating sheep of less than 16kg, seek veterinary advice regarding the use of 1 ml disposable syringes graduated in increments of 0.1 ml. For the treatment of individual sheep, a syringe not exceeding 2.0 ml and calibrated in increments of 0.1 ml should be used. Each ml contains 10 mg of ivermectin sufficient to treat 50 kg of bodyweight of cattle and sheep. The injection may be given with any standard automatic or single-dose or hypodermic syringe. Use of a sterile 17 gauge × 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.
