To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible. If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under- or overdosing.

Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy: Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time. Underdosing which may be due to underestimation of body weight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any). Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used. Care must be taken not to damage the pharyngeal region when dosing.


Special precautions for use: Avoid the introduction of contamination during use. Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals: This product may be irritating to human skin and eyes and may cause dermal sensitisation. Avoid contact with the eyes. Wear protective glasses. Direct contact with the skin should be kept to a minimum. Wear suitable protective clothing including impermeable rubber gloves. Wash hands after use.
