USE OF IVERMECTIN IN DAIRYING

UK Atheya / Cattle, Cattle General Information, Cattle Management, Diseases /

Ivermectin is used for internal and external parasites, internal parasites like nematodes, like intestinal worms and stomach worms plus lungworm. Ivermectin does not work on liver fluke and tapeworm. However, it works on microfilaria. Microfilaria is quiet common in buffalo when buffalo is infected with microfilaria then it starts circling. In this case, ivermectin is very effective.

Ivermectin kills external parasites like lies and mite and ticks. Most of the formulation in the market recommend 1 ml injectable ivermectin on 50 kg of body weight. The injection is always given subcutaneous (under the skin). The injection of ivermectin is very much irritable so the area around injection should be massaged.

Ivermectin injection is effective for 28 days. Virbac company Ivermectin Platinium (Hitek – Platinum) works for 70 days. The ivermectin Platinium (F) also kills liver fluke, Ivermectin is also given orally, in goat ivermectin is not injected but given orally. Very young animals up till the age of five months should not be given ivermectin. The heifers and pregnant and cow or buffalo pregnant for 7 months is given ivermectin at the time of drying the pregnant cow.

The ivermectin is used in the pregnant dry animal but its use in a lactating dairy animal is illegal because it is excreted in milk which affects the nervous system of the milk consumer. Consult your veterinarian about the use of ivermectin. The products of Virbac and Karnataka Antibiotics LTD and other companies are shown below.
