Ivomec is a pet wormer medication for dogs and cattle. Ivomec is a parasiticide used to treat and control internal and external parasites such as gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, grubs, sucking lice, and mange mites in cattle. It’s also used to treat and control gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, lice, and mange mites in swine.

Ivomec Injection for Cattle and Swine and Ivomec Drench for Sheep contain a safe and effective parasiticide for treating a number of infections.

CAUTION: Drenching sheep may cause temporary coughing.

Do not use in calves intended for processing for veal.

Do not treat swine within 18 days of slaughter.

Do not treat reindeer or American bison within 8 weeks (56 days) of slaughter.

Some temporary discomfort, irritation or soft-tissue swelling may occur at the site of injection.

Divide doses of Ivomec Injection between two injection sites in cattle if they are greater than 10 mL.

Do not inject Ivomec Injection intravenously or intramuscularly.

Sterilize sites of injection, needles, and rubber stoppers to help prevent infections. Consult a veterinarian for suspected infections.

Take care to prevent reinfection from untreated animals or contaminated facilities.

Louse eggs are unaffected by Ivomec Injection. Eggs take up to 3 weeks to hatch, and resulting infestations may require another treatment.

For most effective treatment of grubs in cattle, treat as soon as possible at the end of heel fly season.

As with any successful treatment of cattle grubs, treatment with Ivomec may cause adverse reactions when grubs are terminated in vital areas of the host. Fatalities are possible. Killing cattle grubs when they are in the tissue surrounding the esophagus may cause bloating and excess salivation. Killing cattle grubs when they are in vertebral canal may cause staggering or paralysis. Consult your veterinarian to ensure treatment at the proper times.

Do not contaminate water or soil with this product. Dispose of empty containers in an approved landfill or by incineration.

Ivermectin is excreted in the dung. While it can affect insects that rely on dung for food or reproductive purposes, Ivomec should not have adverse effects on insect populations when used as recommended.

Tell your veterinarian if the animal(s) you are treating takes any drugs or supplements.
