For the treatment and control of abamectin sensitive strains of internal parasites including benzimidazole, levamisole, and morantel resistant strains), itch mite and nasal bot of sheep and as an aid in the control of selenium deficiency in sheep.
For concurrent use with a drench from a different chemical group.
VIRBAMEC ORAL PLUS SELENIUM 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 an ML drench, 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 PLUS SELENIUM 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.
Selenium deficiencies can increase the effect a worm burden can have on animals through suppressing their immune systems. Other problems associated with selenium deficiency are ill thrift infertility, reduced production (milk, wool and meat), scouring and ‘white muscle’ disease.
VIRBAMEC ORAL PLUS SELENIUM is given orally at the recommended dose rate of 1mL/4kg.
