For the treatment and control of nitroxynil, ivermectin and clorsulon sensitive strains of internal and external parasites of cattle, and triclabendazole resistant strains of early immature (including 2-week old stages), immature and adult liver fluke.
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.
The strength of synergy
NITROMEC INJECTION has been developed by Virbac as the world’s first triple combination injection for cattle. It contains a combination of nitroxynil, clorsulon and ivermectin where the combination of nitroxynil and clorsulon provides proven synergistic activity against liver fluke. This synergy makes nitromec one of only two products proven to provide 99% efficacy against two week old early immature stages. The only other product with an approved label claim specifically for the control of two week old liver fluke is Virbac’s FLUKAZOLE® C PLUS SELENIUM.
Control of roundworms
NITROMEC INJECTION offers excellent control of ivermectin-sensitive gastrointestinal roundworms and lungworm.
Control of external parasites
NITROMEC INJECTION controls sucking lice and cattle tick and aids in the control of biting lice and mites.
Drench rotation option
The effective life of drenches can be extended by rotating drench families to slow the onset of drench resistance. NITROMEC INJECTION offers an excellent alternative to triclabendazole drenches for liver fluke control.
NITROMEC INJECTION is given subcutaneously at the recommended dose rate of 1.5mL/50kg bodyweight.
