Notify me when back in stock
A broad spectrum anthelmintic for the treatment and control of internal and external parasites of cattle.
Abamectin 10 g/L
Paramectin Injectable for Cattle contains abamectin, a member of the avermectin family of compounds which have a unique mode of action unrelated to that of other products used to control parasites of cattle in Australia.
Paramectin RV Injectable for Cattle reduces the need for separate drenching, dipping and spraying operations which were once common practices in the past. Resistance may develop to any drench.
Ask your local veterinary practitioner or animal health adviser for recommended parasite management practices for your area to reduce development of resistance. It is not recommended in strategic dipping programmes. It provides broad spectrum efficacy against sensitive strains of the following adult and immature internal and external parasites of cattle:
