WHY CHOOSE VIRBAMEC ORAL?

  • Broad Spectrum Parasite Control

    VIRBAMEC ORAL contains abamectin a potent, short acting member of the macrocyclic lactone (ML) family of drenches. Is highly effective against all major internal parasites that are susceptible to abamectin, including gastrointestinal roundworms and large lungworm. These worms reduce overall productivity, especially in young animals. Weight gains can be reduced by up to 20% and wool growth can be affected significantly. VIRBAMEC ORAL also controls itch mite and nasal bot. Abamectin has been consistently shown to be more potent than ivermectin, the other short acting ML used in sheep drenches.

  • Unselenised

    Excess selenium can cause toxicity issues in sheep, particularly if they are suffering liver damage from eating particular weeds. Where sheep are receiving sufficient amounts of selenium in their diet, it may be better to use an unselenised drench. If selenium supplementation via a drench is required, VIRBAMEC® ORAL PLUS SELENIUM is recommended.
