WHAT IS NITROMEC® INJECTION?

  • Outstanding control of liver fluke, including the damaging 2-week old early immature stage
  • Controls triclabendazole resistant strains of liver fluke
  • Synergised combination of nitroxynil and clorsulon
  • Worlds first triple combination injection for cattle
  • Contains ivermectin for broad spectrum control of internal and external parasites
  • 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 NITROMEC INJECTION?

  • 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.
