Dosage & Administration For external use.
Dose: Cattle: 100 mg of deltamethrin per animal corresponding to 10 ml of product. Sheep: 50 mg of deltamethrin per animal corresponding to 5 ml of product Lambs (under 10 kg bodyweight or 1 month of age): 25 mg of deltamethrin per animal corresponding to 2.5 ml of product. Administration: Apply a single dose with the special ‘Squeeze ‘n’ Pour’ dispenser pack or the Spot-On Applicator in one spot on the mid-line of the back at the shoulders.
For blowfly strike on sheep, see following specific indication directions.
Lice on cattle: One application will generally eradicate all lice.
Complete clearance of all lice may take 4 – 5 weeks during which time lice hatch from the eggs and are killed. A very few lice may survive on a small minority of animals.
Flies on cattle: For the treatment and prevention of infestations by biting and non-biting flies. Where horn-flies predominate, treatment and prevention of infestations can be expected for 4 – 8 weeks. Treatment for flies should not be repeated within four weeks.
Ticks on sheep: Application to the mid-point of the shoulders will provide useful treatment and prevention of infestations by ticks attaching to animals of all ages, for up to 6 weeks after treatment.
Keds and lice on sheep: Application to the mid-point of the shoulders of sheep in short or long fleece will reduce the incidence of a biting louse or ked infestation over a 4 – 6 week period after treatment.
It is advisable to: – treat shortly after shearing (animals with short fleece), – keep treated sheep separated from untreated sheep to avoid re-infestation. N.B. For treatment and prevention of infestations by ticks, keds and lice on sheep, the fleece should be parted and the Spot-On applied to the skin of the animal.
Established blowfly strike on sheep: Apply directly to the maggot infected area as soon as the fly strike is seen.
One application will ensure blowfly larvae are killed in a short time. In the case of more advanced strike lesions, clipping out of stained wool before treatment is advisable.
Lice and ticks on lambs: Application to the mid-point of the shoulders will provide useful treatment and prevention of infestations by ticks for up to 6 weeks after treatment, and will reduce the incidence of biting lice over a 4-6 week period after treatment.
