Long Acting (LA), the new long-acting
injection that controls roundworms,
nasal bot and itchmite in sheep.
USING LONG ACTING (LA) PRODUCTS
CONDITIONS WHERE LA TREATMENTS MAKE SENSE
• No clean paddocks are available i.e. those with minimal worm burdens.
• With pre-lambing ewes towards the end of pregnancy to avoid handling.
– interventions need to be limited to avoid stress and not closer than 2 weeks to lambing
– reduced handling will lower the risk of pregnancy toxaemia in late pre-lambing ewes and
mis-mothering if lambs are already on the ground.
If long-acting drenches are being used, it is vital they are used responsibly.
Note: Capsules play a very similar role to LA drenches and they should also be used responsibly.
CONSEQUENCES IF LA DRENCHES ARE NOT USED RESPONSIBLY
• The irresponsible use of LA products may render that class of actives ineffective on that property.
This means that not only the moxidectin in Sheepguard LA will be at risk, but also the other MLs.
• With a longer protection period expected, an ineffective drench can result in:
– dead sheep
– lost productivity
– no value for money
– sheep seeding paddocks with resistant worms.
• Accelerated drench resistance emerging due to sub-lethal levels of the LA active in the sheep.
• Contains moxidectin (20g/L), a potent ML
(Macrocyclic lactone or ‘mectin’).
• Protects against severe challenge by barber’s
pole worm for up to 4 months.
• Length of protection against the three major
