For the treatment of gastro-intestinal parasites and lungworm in sheep and cattle.
For concurrent use with a drench from a different chemical group.
LEVAMISOLE GOLD LV is a clear drench, providing an opportunity to rotate away from macrocyclic lactone (ML) or benzimidazole (white) drenches. Levamisole is still highly effective against barber’s pole worm and Nematodirus on many properties. Nematodirus is often a problem after drought or in lambing paddocks as the egg is resilient and can survive in hot, dry conditions for long periods.
LEVAMISOLE GOLD LV is highly effective against all major internal parasites that are susceptible to a clear drench, including gastrointestinal roundworms and lungworm. These worms reduce overall productivity, especially in young animals. Weight gains can be reduced by up to 20% and milk and wool production can be affected significantly.
Resistance to levamisole by barber’s pole worm in sheep is not common, so LEVAMISOLE GOLD LV provides a cost-effective, short acting option to treat this worm. This is especially important if barber’s pole worm is the major worm on a property and an alternative to a macrocyclic lactone (ML) drench is required for the purpose of rotation.
Only approximately 0.9% of the initial dose of levamisole can be found in tissues. This enables LEVAMISOLE GOLD LV to have a very short meat withholding period and export slaughter interval giving you the flexibility to get your lambs to market at the optimal time.
A low volume formulation means giving smaller doses per animal, whilst still getting the same amount of active ingredient into the animal. This is an advantage when large numbers of animals are being treated or you are treating heavy sheep or cattle. The low volume formulation allows easier and quicker drenching.
