4.1 Target Species
4.2 Indications for use, specifying the target species
For the effective treatment and control of the following species of gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, warbles, mites and lice:
Gastro-intestinal roundworms (adults and fourth stage larvae)
Ostertagia ostertagi (including inhibited O. ostertagi)
Strongyloides papillosus (adult)
Trichuris spp (adult)
Lungworms (adult and fourth stage larvae):
Eye Worms (adult)
Warbles (parasitic stages):
Chorioptes bovis Sarcoptes scabiei var. bovis.
Animec Pour-On given at the recommended dosage of 500 micrograms/kg bodyweight, controls infections with Trichostrongylus axei and Cooperia acquired up to 14 days after treatment,
Ostertagia ostertagi and Oesophagostomum radiatum acquired during the first 21 days after treatment and Dictyocaulus viviparus (lungworm) acquired during the first 28 days after treatment.
It also controls horn flies (Haematobia irritans) for up 35 days after treatment.
Do not use in cases of known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient.
This product is for application to skin surface only, do not give orally or parenterally.
4.4 Special warnings for each target species
Cattle should not be treated when hair or hide is wet.
Rain falling on cattle in less than two hours after dosing may result in reduced efficacy.
However, the efficacy of the product against established infections of O. ostertagi or D.viviparus is not adversely affected if the hide is wet or if rain falls shortly after treatment.
Do not apply to areas of skin that may have mange scabs or other lesions or to areas contaminated with mud or manure.
Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:
·Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time. ·Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of body weight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device.
Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.
4.5 Special precautions for use Special precautions for use in animals
Avermectins may not be well tolerated in all non-target species.
Cases of intolerance with fatal outcome are reported in dogs, especially Collies, Old English Sheepdogs and related breeds or crosses, and also in turtles/tortoises.
Frequent and repeated use may lead to the development of resistance.
Special Precautions to be taken by the Person Administering the Medicinal Product to Animals
The product may be irritating to human skin and eyes and the user should be careful not to apply it to himself or other persons.
Operators should wear rubber gloves and boots with a waterproof coat when applying the product.
Protective clothing should be washed after use. Use only in well-ventilated areas or outdoors.
As absorption through skin can occur, in the event of accidental skin contact the affected area should be washed immediately with soap and water.
If accidental eye exposure occurs, flush the eyes immediately with water and seek medical attention.
Wash hands after use.
4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)
4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route
1 ml per 10 kg bodyweight (based on a recommended dose of 500 micrograms/kg bodyweight) Administration:
The formulation should be applied along the mid-line of the back in a narrow strip between the withers and tailhead. The product should be used with appropriate dosing equipment.
To ensure administration of correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under- or overdosing.
4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary
No sign of toxicity appeared up to 1.5 mg/kg (3 times the recommended dose rate).
No antidote has been identified.

5 PHARMACOLOGICAL or IMMUNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
insecticides and repellents,
Ivermectin is a member of the avermectin group.
5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties
Ivermectin is a member of the macrocyclic lactone class of endectocides, which have a unique mode of action. Compounds of the class bind selectively and with high affinity to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels, which occur in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells. This leads to an increase in the permeability of the cell membrane to chloride ions with hyperpolarisation of the nerve or muscle cell, resulting in paralysis and death of the parasite.
Compounds of this class may also interact with other ligand-gated chloride channels, such as those gated by the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
The margin of safety for compounds of this class is attributable to the fact that mammals do not have glutamate-gated chloride channels, the macrocyclic lactones have a low affinity for other mammalian ligand-gated chloride channels and they do not readily cross the blood-brain barrier.
5.2 Pharmacokinetic particulars
After topical administration of the product at the recommended dose of 500 microgram per kg bodyweight, the plasma concentrations increased to an average plateau of 12-16 ng/ml between 36-144 hours post treatment (Tmax is 3.7 days) with a Cmax of 16.89 ng/ml.
After day 6 the ivermectin levels gradually decreased to an average of less than 2 ng/ml at 28 days.
The concentrations mentioned relate to the main component of ivermectin, 22,23-dihydroaverectin B1a.
The AUC for ivermectin is 4175 ng/ml/hr with a distribution half life of 7.2 days.
