Ivomec Injectable?

Postby OleScout » Fri Jun 08, 2018 9:59 am

What's going on with the Ivomec Injectable. My local guys don't have any and I went to a dozen or so websites trying to order all show Out of stock and indefinite backorder.

Use Longrange, little pricey, but very good results.

LongRange uses the same parasiticide as Eprinomectin pour on. Eprinomectin. Long Range has a polymer that allows extended release. I use the pour on but I agree with Jehosofat, The active ingredient (eprinomectin) in LongRange is better than the Ivermectin in Ivomec.

Just got off the phone with Brent Tolle, Senior Sale Rep at Merial (Boehringer Ingelheim). They make LongRange and Ivomec injectable. The manufacturer of Ivomec had a manufacturing break down. It has been fixed but there is a worldwide backorder.

Would be good to have more manufacturers if you are supporting the world...

What about Safeguard?


Safeguard is a different class of parasiticide. It is effective for roundworms but not ectoparasites - lice, ticks, etc. Safeguard contains fenbendazole. I use Safeguard as an oral parasiticide on my young calves when I only need to address roundworms. I prefer VALBAZEN:

While the dosage volume of VALBAZEN is larger than Safe-Guard® or Synanthic®, VALBAZEN has the most effective dosage, covering 25% more parasites and life stages than Safe-Guard and 47% more than Synanthic.

I use Valbazen on calves but not on cows because of the possible effects on early stages of pregnancy.On them,I use Synanthic on years when I'm switching classes of wormers.
Eternals can be easily addressed with Ultra Boss,Sabre or a synergized generic pyrethroid.

I'm am not saying the OP is doing this but I've read where using one of the"mectrins for external control only may contribute to an eventual resistance to the drug.The fly tag users have found this out.One suggestion I have read is use organophosphate tags for three years then use a next gen pyrethroid for one.
We used to use a lot of fly tags but they got expensive and,for me, the back rubs do well.Or a spray every two weeks or so

Synathic is broader spectrum than Safeguard. It not only kills roundworms but also flatworms.

that is the reason I use Valbazen on my calves, it kills tapeworms. Calves are more susceptible to tapeworms, so I only use it on my calves.

Both are common. Tapeworms are a minor clinical problem compared to round worms. Even in humans, tapeworms are a
relatively minor heath risk. On the other hand, some round worms can be a major health risk. Their life cycles can take them through many of the body's organ-systems such as the lungs, kidneys, heart, etc.
