Directions of use
DO NOT USE in cattle during lactation or less than 60 days before calving when milk or milk products are to be used for human consumption or processing. DO NOT USE in animals within 28 days (4 weeks) of a previous treatment.
To avoid tissue residues, take care to estimate the weights and dosages in young animals. Cattle Tick Control: The persistence of doramectin prevents the development of viable cattle ticks for a period of 28 days following treatment. However, engorged female ticks that drop off for up to 3 days after treatment may lay viable eggs and this should be taken into account when planning a strategic tick control program. If presenting cattle for clearance to tick-free areas, consult your local tick advisory authority before use.
Dosage and administration
Use the contents within 28 days of first broaching the vial. Store upright. Discard the unused portion. Use a multi-dose syringe for multiple treatments to minimize the number of broachings.
DOSE RATE FOR CATTLE
1 mL per 50 kg bodyweight subcutaneously (SC) (under the skin).
DOSE RATE FOR PIGS
Administer DORAMATE by subcutaneous (SC) injection (under the skin) into the neck region and preferably high up behind the ear. Use the dose rate according to the weight of the animal given in the table below.
Cattle heavier than 650 kg should be dosed at 1 mL per 50 kg bodyweight. A representative sample of animals should be weighed before treatment either with scales or a weighband. Dose rate to be based on the heaviest cattle in each group (bulls, cows, steers, calves, etc.). Do not under dose. Where there is a large variation in size within the group, draft into two or more lines based on bodyweight to avoid excessive overdosing.
Treatment of very young animals (less than 40 kg bodyweight) is generally not warranted. Worm parasites may develop resistance to any anthelmintic. If this is suspected please contact your local veterinary practitioner or advise the manufacturer.
Meat: Cattle 42 days, Pigs 35 days;
Milk: DO NOT USE in cattle during lactation or less than 60 days before calving when milk is to be used for human consumption or processing.
