MORE DETAILS ABOUT VETMEC

Vetmec with Abamectin 
The active ingredient in VETMEC is abamectin – one of the avermectin / milbemycin family of endectides. Abamectin, like all other avermectins (including Ivermectin (eg Ivomec ® ), eprinomectin (eg Eprinex ® ), doramectin (eg Dectomax ® ) kills parasites by focusing on their neurotransmitter gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) to cripple the transmission of nervous impulses. Its action is different from that of the active ingredients in white and clear drenches. Abamectin is therefor effective against parasites resistant to white and clear drench families.

Sound parasite control strategies with VETMEC cattle injections
VETMEC cattle injection is ideally suited for tactical and strategic treatments, to help clean up pastures and prevent outbreaks of Type II Ostertagiosis .

In addition, VETMEC provides an ideal opportunity to prevent the build up of lice with a single treatment.

Being an injectable product there is greater confidence that the cattle will have received the full dose at treatment compared with pour-on products. An internal study by Chemvet (OZY9709) demonstrated (click here for article) that blood levels following injection with VETMEC were several times higher than those following a registered abamectin pour-on treatment.
