An anthelmintic drug for sheep
Composition: Monepantel 25 mg/ml
Indications: Zolvix® oral solution is a roundworm remedy for the treatment and control of gastro-intestinal nematodes and associated diseases in sheep of all age groups, including young and yearling lambs, breeding rams and ewes.
Zolvix® is effective against strains resistant to (pro)benzimidazoles, levamisole, morantel and macrocyclic lactones.
Amounts to be administered and administration route: To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy and proper functioning of the dosing device should be checked.
If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their body weight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under- or overdosing.
For accurate dosing of this low-volume solution, administer orally on the back of the tongue. Drenching equipment should be cleaned after use.
The product is administered as a single treatment. However, the administration may be repeated, depending on the epidemiological situation in different areas.
The minimum effective dose rate is 2,5 mg/kg body weight of monepantel.
