Sheepguard SE Oral drench for sheep with Selenium is a moxidectin (second generation macrocyclic lactone) endectocide which is effective against internal and external parasites sensitive to this family, including the following parasites of sheep. It also aids in the control of selenium responsive conditions. For the treatment and control of moxidectin-sensitive gastrointestinal parasites (including benzimidazole and/or levamisole resistant strains), lungworm and itchmite of sheep.
Ectoparasites: Psorergates ovis itchmite. When used as recommended, Sheepguard SE prevents reinfection with H. contortus worms for at least 14 days and pasture contamination by H. contortus eggs for at least 30 days after single treatment. It also prevents re-infection by Teladorsagia sp. worms for at least 14 days and pasture contamination by Teladorsagia sp. eggs for at least 35 days after a single treatment. It is effective against benzimidazole and levamisole resistant strains of H. contortus, T. colubriformis and T. circumcincta. It has shown efficacy against a number of ivermectin resistant strains of H. contortus and Teladorsagia sp. However, as Sheepguard shares similar mechanism of action to the avermectins, it should not be used where avermectin resistance is present, except where specifically recommended by an advisor.
Ready to use. Administer using any standard drenching equipment. Check dose rates and equipment before drenching commences. Sheep should be weighed prior to dosing. Dose the mob to the heaviest animal by liveweight in each group (ewes, rams, lambs).
Do not underdose.
Sheepguard SE has a wide margin of safety when used as recommended and is readily accepted by sheep.
Warnings: Do not add copper salts or additional selenium to this drench. This product should not be used when selenium intake from pasture is high or selenium is provided by other means (such as pasture top dressing, vaccine, pellets or selenium drenches) if blood selenium levels at treatment are high. Users can determine selenium status by consulting a veterinarian.
