Know your cattle and pigs are being treated correctly with Bomectin anti-parasitic Injection. A convenient one-shot injection means there is no splash-off, so 100% of the treatment enters the animal for optimum results.
Bomectin Injection targets Ivermectin-sensitive internal and external parasites of cattle and pigs. These include gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, eyeworms, sucking lice, mites, and Cattle Tick in cattle. In pigs, Bomectin Injection will spell the end of gastrointestinal roundworms, kidney worms, lungworms, lice and mites.
Broad spectrum – controls both internal and external parasites
Dose assured – an injection is not subject to splash-off when correctly applied. 100% enters the animal
Safety – injecting means less manoeuvring in the crush, which lessens the likelihood of injury
Lightweight – an injectable dose is a fraction of the volume of a pour-on, which means less lifting and easier storage
Bomectin when used at the recommended dose level of 1mL per 50kg bodyweight (cattle) or 1mL per 33kg bpdyweight (pigs) provides control of the following parasites:
Gastrointestinal roundworms: adult and immature –
Ostertagia ostertagi( including third and fourth stage larvae and inhibited immatures), O. lyrata, Haemonchus placei (including third and fourth stage larvae), Trichostrongylus axei, T. colubriformis, Cooperia spp. (including third and fourth stage larvae), Bunostomum phlebotomum (including third and fourth stage alrvae) and adults of Nematodirus spathiger, Nemotodirus helvetianus, Strongyloides papillosus, Toxocara vitulorum and Trichuris spp.
Lungworms:adults and immature – Dictylocaulus viviparus (including inhibited stages.)
Eyeworms: adult Thelazia spp.
Sucking Lice: Linognathus vituli, Haematopinus eurystemus and Solenopotes capillatus. Does not provide full control of cattle biting louse Bovicola (Damalinia) bovis.
Screw worm Fly: parasitic larval stages of Chrysomya bezziana (not reported in Australia but present in Papua New Guinea).
Mites: Sarcoptes scabiei var. bovis
Cattle Tick: Boophilus microplus
At the recommended dose rate, BOMECTIN effectively controls infections with Ostertagia spp. and Cooperia spp acquired up to 14 days after treatment. When used as directed for control of internal parasites of cattle, BOMECTIN concurrently aids in control of:
Mites: Chorioptes bovis
Gastrointestinal roundworms: Ascaris suum (adults and L4 immature stage), Hyostrongylus rubidus (adults and L4 immature stage), Oesophagostomum spp. adults and L4 immature stage), Strongyloides ransomi (adults)*, Trichuris suis (adults).
Kidney worms: Stephanurusdentatus (adults and L4 immature stage).
Lungworms: Metastrongylus spp. (adults).
Lice: Haematopinus suis
Mites: Sarcoptes scabiei var suis
*Bomectin given to the sow 7 to 14 days before farrowing effectively controls transmission via the milk of Strongyloides ransomi infections to piglets.
Cattle: 1mL/50kg liveweight (Ivermectin 200 microgram/kg liveweight) by subcutaneous injection in the neck.
Pigs: 1mL/33kg liveweight (Ivermectin 300 microgram/kg liveweight) by subcutaneous injection in the neck.
MEAT: DO NOT USE in pigs or cattle less than 28 days before slaughter for human consumption.
MILK: When milk or milk products are to be used for human consumption DO NOT USE in cows within 28 days prior to calving or during lactaction.
