AUSMECTIN® CATTLE POUR-ON is a ready-to-use solution of ivermectin, a member of the macrocyclic lactone class of endectocides, which has a unique mode of action.
It acts selectively in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells resulting in paralysis and death of the parasite.
AUSMECTIN® CATTLE POUR-ON is indicated for the control and treatment of:
- ivermectin-sensitive gastrointestinal roundworms (including inhibited immature Ostertagia ostertagi):
- lungworms (Dictyocaulus viviparus)
- eyeworms (Thelazia spp.)
- sucking and biting lice
- chorioptic and sarcoptic mange mites
- buffalo flies (Haematobia irritans exigua)
- cattle ticks (Boophilus microplus).
Ivermectin has a long intrinsic half-life, which provides excellent residual protection against parasitic reinfestation for a varying period depending on the target parasite and the pharmaceutical nature of the ivermectin formulation.
