Recommended Treatment Program
Swine- At the time of initiating any parasite control program, it is important to treat all breeding animals in the herd. After the initial treatment, use Endo-Mectin®Injection regularly as follows:
Breeding Animals- Sows: Treat prior to farrowing, preferably 7-14 days before, to minimize infection of piglets. Gilts: Treat 7-14 days prior to breeding. Treat 7-14 days prior to farrowing. Boars: Frequency and need for treatments are dependent upon exposure. Treat at least two times a year. Feeder Pigs: (weaners/growers/finishers), All weaner/feeder pigs should be treated before placement in clean quarters. Pigs exposed to contaminated soil or pasture may need retreatment if reinfection occurs. Note: (1) Endo-Mectin® Injection has a persistent drug level sufficient to control mite infestations throughout the egg to adult life cycle. However, since the ivermectin effect is not immediate, care must be taken to prevent reinfestation from exposure to untreated animals or contaminated facilities. Generally, pigs should not be moved to clean quarters or exposed to uninfested pigs for approximately one week after treatment. Sows should be treated at least one week before farrowing to minimize transfer of mites to newborn baby pigs.
Special Minor Use; Reindeer - For the treatment and control of warbles (Oedemagena tarandi) in reindeer, inject 200 micrograms ivermectin per kilogram of body weight, subcutaneously. Follow use directions for cattle as described under ADMINISTRATION.
American Bison - For the treatment and control of grubs (Hypoderma bovis) in American bison, inject 200 micrograms ivermectin per kilogram of body weight, subcutaneously. Follow dose directions for cattle as described above
