PRECAUTIONS

  • Vaccination of cattle against Clostridium infections (e.g. black quarter) prior to the treatment with Solution® 3,5% L.A. is recommended.
  • Sheep should be vaccinated against pulpy kidney (enterotoxemia) before treatment.
  • Do not smoke or eat while handling the product.
  • Wash hands after use.
  • Store bottle in carton to protect from light.

 

N.B.: Transitory discomfort has been observed in some animals following subcutaneous administration. A low incidence of soft tissue swelling may be observed at the injection site. These reactions are normal and usually resolve without treatment. Consult your veterinarian if swelling persists.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY

Studies indicate that when ivermectin comes in contact with the soil, it readily and tightly binds to the soil and becomes inactive over time. Drug containers and any residual content should be disposed of safely in accordance with local waste disposal regulations as free ivermectin may adversely affect fish and certain waterborne organisms.
