WHAT IS NITROFLUKE INJECTION?

  • Synergised combination of nitroxynil and clorsulon
  • Outstanding control of liver fluke, including the damaging 2-week old early immature stage
  • Controls triclabendazole resistant strains of liver fluke
  • Easy to use subcutaneous injection

RECOMMENDED FOR

Areas where liver fluke is found, typically throughout south-eastern Australia generally where rainfall is 600mm or more or in drier areas where irrigation channels are accessible by livestock. This includes south-eastern Queensland, eastern New South Wales, most of Victoria and parts of Tasmania and south-eastern South Australia.

Treatment Timings

  • Autumn Treatment (compulsory)
    7 – 10 days following the first frost. Designed to clean out the fluke prior to the stresses of winter.
  • Spring treatment (compulsory)
    Break the liver fluke lifecycle by removing any fluke that have survived winter. Prevents the contamination of pasture with fluke eggs as temperatures warm up. This treatment should occur prior to the spring break.
  • Summer / early Autumn (tactical)
    Recommended for areas with extended periods of warm conditions. Ideal timing is January or February treatment to suppress fluke numbers.
  • Mid winter treatment (tactical)
    For areas where fluke infection can continue all through the year such as warm coastal areas a mid winter treatment may also be necessary.

WHY CHOOSE NITROFLUKE INJECTION?

  • The strength of synergy (control 2 week old fluke)
    NITROFLUKE INJECTION has been developed by Virbac as a critical management tool in controlling all stages of triclabendazole-resistant liver fluke. It contains a combination of nitroxynil and clorsulon which provides proven synergistic activity against liver fluke. This synergy means NITROFLUKE INJECTION controls all stages of liver fluke down to 2 week old early immature liver fluke. The only other products to do this are Virbac’s NITROMEC® INJECTION and FLUKAZOLE® C PLUS SELENIUM

  • Control of Resistant Fluke
    NITROFLUKE INJECTION controls all stages of fluke providing the only straight Flukacide option for Triclabendazole resistant fluke.

  • Drench rotation option
    The effective life of drenches can be extended by rotating drench families to slow the onset of drench resistance. NITROFLUKE INJECTION offers an excellent alternative to Triclabendazole drenches for liver fluke control.

  • Use with Cydectin Long Acting Injection for Cattle
    NITROFLUKE INJECTION can be used alongside CYDECTIN® LONG ACTING INJECTION FOR CATTLE for best practice broad spectrum worm and fluke control.
