The recommended dose is 1 mL NOROMECTIN PLUS per 50 kg bodyweight (200 µg ivermectin/kg and 2 mg clorsulon/kg liveweight) by subcutaneous injection. This product should not be used intravenously or intramuscularly.
Dose the mob according to the heaviest animal by liveweight in each group (cows, bulls, calves, heifers, etc). Do not underdose. A representative sample of cattle should be weighed before treatment either with scales or with a weighband.
Where there is a large variation in size within the group, draft into two or more lines based on bodyweight, to avoid excessive overdosing.
MEAT: DO NOT USE less than 28 days before slaughter for human consumption.
EXPORT SLAUGHTER INTERVAL: DO NOT slaughter for export until 42 days after treatment.
Contraindictions, Warnings etc
Safety: Studies have demonstrated a wide safety margin. Pregnant and breeding cattle may be safely treated provided normal care is taken in handling.Transitory discomfort has been observed in some cattle following subcutaneous administration. Soft-tissue swelling at the injection site has also been observed. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Divide doses greater than 10 mL between two injection sites to reduce occasional discomfort or site reaction. Different injection sites should be used for other parenteral products.
Store below 30°C (Room temperature). Store bottle in carton to protect from light. Once broached, the product must be used within 28 days.
When the temperature of the product is below 5oC, difficulty in administration may be encountered due to increased viscosity. Warming the product and injection equipment to about 15oC will greatly increase the ease with which the product can be injected.
Dispose of empty container by wrapping with paper and putting in garbage.
Discarded needles/sharps should immediately be placed in a designated and appropriately labelled ‘sharps’ container.
