WHY CHOOSE VIRBAMEC PLUS?

  • Control of internal parasites 

    VIRBAMEC PLUS controls internal parasites including adult liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica), gastrointestinal roundworms (including inhibited stages of Ostertagia), lungworm and eyeworm. It has sustained activity against Ostertagia spp and Cooperia spp (for up to 7 days) and Dictyocaulus viviparous (for up to 14 days) post treatment.

  • Control of external parasites 

    VIRBAMEC PLUS 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. VIRBAMEC PLUS offers an excellent alternative to triclabendazole drenches for adult liver fluke control.

  • Easy to use 

    VIRBAMEC PLUS has a free-flowing formulation that makes dosing cattle easy. It is available in two pack sizes including a unique 2.5L backpack that is convenient for treating large numbers of animals.

  • Nil milk withhold 

    VIRBAMEC PLUS can be used on lactating dairy cattle, giving dairy farmers the flexibility to treat their animals at the optimal time.
