AVOTAN® POUR-ON

use of pour on

INDICATIONS

Ready to use pour-on for the control of roundworms and blue ticks in cattle.

This product is primarily indicated for dairy animals. This product is not ideal to use in cases of heavy tick burdens or during peak tick-seasons.

COMPOSITION

Contains: Abamectin 5 mg/mℓ.

PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTION

Please note that this product acts systemically after application along the top line of the animal. The active ingredient is absorbed through the skin and in order for it to control ticks, the ticks need to bite and take a blood meal from an animal treated with abamectin. For this reason, the product is designed to control blue tick numbers and not to prevent tick-borne diseases. When the tick population has been controlled through regular/strategic application of this product, the risk of tick-borne diseases may significantly decrease.
