Buy US raised beef wormed with a product from the UK, what the heck is going on. Does anyone have any experience with Vetrimec Plus with Clorsulon? Thanks

I have not heard of it. Clorsulon is a component that kills flukes. Clorsulon is an ingredient in Ivomec Plus.

Vet ONE manufactures a lot of generics for veterinary use.

If you are hung up on using only made in USA drugs, you are limiting your choices.

Based on a quick online search:

LA 200, Lutalyse - Spain

Ivomec & Ivomec Plus, Draxxin - Brazil

Cydectin Pour-on - Italy

Banamine, Baytril 100 - Germany

Enroflox 100 (generic Baytril) - UK

CIDRs - New Zealand
Got bored with looking up drugs by this point.
The root cause of the majority of the problems in the world today is that common sense is no longer a prerequisite to staying alive.

Thanks, but that's really a little disheartening. Buying anything from Brazil scares the heck out me. Why the heck aren't US companies making animal biologicals? My guess is animal biologicals aren't subsidized or there's not enough money in them for the greedy pharmaceutical companies.

All our American drug companies produce drugs overseas. For example, Ivomec is a product of Boehringer Ingelheim, but the plant that makes it is in Brazil. In the same way that John Deere builds tractors in Mexico.

So that's what happened to JD. When they were built here they were the best, built in Germany they were alright, built in Mexico not so good.

Here is my box of Eprinex. Made by Merial which is wholly owned by Boehringer. Notice they make it in New Zealand. Might be hard to read. Look in the lower left hand corner.

Quality is held to a higher standard by the original makers of the drugs. Even when produced in foreign plants. Not true if they are "generics".

Starting to sound like DNA and EPD'S in cattle.
