If part-used containers of the product are to be kept for future use, the dispensing kit must be removed, washed and stored as per the instructions, and the original cap must be replaced securely on the product container.

The dispensing kit must not be used for any other purpose.

The instructions for the use of the dispensing it read as follows:
- Ectoflits Summer and Winter Sheep Dip concentrate must be dispensed only by using this kit.
Read the directions for use printed on the product container before using this kit.
It is essential that the advice on wearing protective clothing is strictly adhered to at all times when handling new or part-used containers of sheep dip concentrate, when using the dispensing kit and when washing used concentrate containers and the dispensing kit.
This kit is re-usable.
It should not be used for any other purpose.
It should be washed and stored as directed on the instruction card.

DISPENSING DIP PRODUCT
i) Preparation for dipping.
Place the dip concentrate container into the cage on the base-plate so that the coloured corner of the container label is aligned with the coloured corner of the base-plate.
This will tilt the container to allow withdrawal of the maximum amount of dip concentrate.
Place the dispensing base-plate on level ground at the edge of the dip tank and feed the dispensing hose through the hole in the base-plate so that the hose hangs down into the dip tank.
Where splash-boards are fitted the base-plate should be sited so that the dispensing hose is fed through an existing gap in the barrier.
For extra security the base-plate can be attached to a solid object near to the edge of the dip tank using twine or wire threaded to a solid object through the cage at the rear of the base plate.

ii) Initial fill of dip concentrate into dip bath (see Fig. A):
Connect gun inlet hose (2) to container outlet valve (1) and connect gun outlet (3) to dispensing hose (5). Carefully pump the trigger of the gun until the gun reservoir and outlet tubes are full of product.
Then dispense the required number of 60 ml volumes of dip concentrate for initial charging of the dip tank (see container label for details).
The dispensing gun is fixed to deliver 60 ml only and is sealed for safety reasons.
It must not be disassembled.
When filling the gun reservoir, to ensure accuracy, it is important to wait until the plunger has returned completely before dispensing the dip concentrate.
It is recommended that the operator keeps a tally of the number of volumes dispensed.
After every ten x 60 ml dispensings, using a dry gloved finger, press down on the top of container inlet valve
(4) for a few seconds (see Fig. B). This is to allow air to enter the container to relieve any negative pressure. 

iii) Replenishment of dip bath with the product: (see Figures A & B).
Replenishment with one 60 ml delivery of concentrate treats 12 sheep.
Baths less than 2250 litres (500 gallons) must be replenished after every 36 sheep dipped (3 x 60 ml deliveries from the dispensing gun) and the bath must be filled with water to its original level.
Baths of 2250 litres (500 gallons) or more must be replenished after every 96 sheep dipped (8 x 60 ml deliveries from the dispensing gun) and the bath must be filled with water to its original level.
Approaching the end of the days dipping, when replenishing the dip bath for the final time, carry out the first 1 x 60 ml delivery for a bath less than 2250 litres (or the first 6 x 60 ml deliveries for a bath greater than 2250 litres) and allow the gun to refill by releasing the trigger.
Then disconnect gun inlet hose (2) from container outlet valve (1) and connect gun inlet hose (2) to hose (6) ensuring that the non-return valve (7) on the end of the hose is secured to the clip (8) on the carrying handle (see Fig. C).
Now pump the gun two more times and the final 120 ml of dip concentrate will be delivered into the dip bath. Replace transit cap onto the part used container.
Now follow instructions on how to wash and store the dispensing kit (see ‘Washing Instructions).

iv) To change containers during dipping:
If a container is emptied during dipping disconnect gun inlet hose (2) from empty container outlet valve (1). Immediately re-connect to a new container and carefully pump the trigger of the gun until the reservoir is full.
When disconnected, do not try to operate the delivery gun until the correct connections (step ii) have been made. Store the empty container safely until the end of the day’s dipping.
Do not rinse empty containers until the end of the day’s dipping (see Washing Instructions).
This is to avoid the possibility of the introduction of water into part-filled dip concentrate containers.
Even very small amounts of water can affect the long-term stability of the dip concentrate.

Washing/cleaning gun reservoir, hose and empty containers
i) At the end of the day’s dipping you must wash all empty containers to remove residual dip concentrate prior to disposal.
The washings must be disposed of into the dip tank.
Place the empty dip concentrate container into the cage on the base-plate so that the coloured corner of the container label is aligned with the coloured corner of the base-plate exactly as in
step (i) of Dispensing the Dip product’ instructions.
ii) To wash out the product container when it is empty (see Fig. D): Disconnect the gun outlet hose (3) from the dispensing hose (5). Connect the gun outlet hose (3) to the container inlet valve (4) and connect gun inlet hose (2) to hose (6). Then immerse in the non-return valve (7) in a bucket containing at least 5 litres of clean water. Pump 3 x 60 ml (180 ml) of water into the container and shake the container to rinse it of any remaining dip concentrate.

iii) To empty the product container of rinse water (see Fig. E):
Disconnect the gun outlet hose (3) from the container inlet valve (4).
Connect the gun outlet hose (3) to the dispensing hose (5).
Disconnect the gun inlet hose (2) from the hose (6).
Connect the gun inlet hose (2) to the container outlet valve (1).
Pump the gun repeatedly to remove all of the rinsings from the container and the dip-tank.
Repeat the rinsing and emptying processes two more times to ensure that the product container is empty of all traces of product before disposing of the container.

iv) To wash out gun reservoir and hose:
Having rinsed the empty containers, or at the end of a days dipping when no dip container has been emptied, you must then rinse out the gun reservoir and hose to maintain it in working order. Before following the washing procedure, if a part-filled container remains you must remove it from the cage and store it safely with the cap replaced. If not already in place, connect gun inlet hose (2) to hose (6). Ensure that gun outlet hose (3) is connected to dispensing hose (5). Then immerse the non-return valve (7) in a bucket containing at least 5 litres of clean water. Pump at least 10 x 60 ml through the gun and the tubing into the dip tank to ensure that the gun reservoir and hosepipes are clear of dip concentrate.

v) To clear out gun reservoir and hose of water:
Remove the non-return valve (7) from the water and secure it in clip (8) on the kit handle.
Pump the dispensing gun until the gun reservoir and hose are completely clear of water.
Disconnect gun outlet hose (3) from dispensing hose (5) and gun inlet hose (2) from hose (6).
Rinse the outside of the dispensing hose and valves (2) and (3) by immersing in a bucket of clean water, then agitate and rinse all valves.
Dispose of the rinse water in the dip tank.
Rise valves (5) and (6) by spraying with water so that the rinsings drain into the dip-tank, taking care to avoid splashing yourself or others.
Repeat this process two more times.

Then store the dispensing kit in the original carton, in a dry place below 250C as follows:
Connect gun outlet hose (3) to dispensing hose (5) and connect gun inlet hose (2) to hose (6).
Then secure the non-return valve (7) in clip (8) on the kit handle.
This allows the air to dry the gun reservoir and hose system.
A part-used container can be stored (with its cap replaced) in the base-plate cage. 

vi) Disposal:
The dispensing kit has been shown in tests to withstand 5 years of simulated use.
If you do need to dispose of the kit, rinse the gun and hoses thoroughly as in steps (iv) and (v).
Dispose of the dispensing kit in accordance with guidance from your local waste regulation authority.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route

To prepare the bath:
Measure the required volume of cold soft water into the bath.
Fit the Dispensing kit (available from your Ectoflits Summer and Winter Sheep Dip supplier) to the dual valved lid of the container as described in section 4.5 above.
Dispense the required amount of product into the dip tank via the dispensing kit in the proportion of 600 ml Ectoflits to 900 Litres (200 gallons) of water (i.e. dispense 10 x 60 ml amounts of dip concentrate into the dip tank – see section 4.5 above).
Stir the bath thoroughly from end to end before commencing dipping and dip on the day the dip is prepared.

To replenish the bath:
Mix the dip concentrate into the water after the initial fill and after each replenishment by stirring thoroughly with a metal rod, preferably with a paddle attachment.
Avoid using wooden dunking poles as these may absorb dip and result in prolonged exposure after dipping.

Baths of less than 2250 litres (500 gallons)
Add 180 ml of dip after every 36 sheep dipped and restore the bath with water to its original volume (i.e. dispense 3 x 60 ml amounts of dip concentrate into the dip tank – see section 4.5 above).

Baths of 2250 litres (500 gallons) or more
Add 480 ml of dip after every 96 sheep dipped and sufficient water to restore the bath to its original volume (i.e. dispense 8 x 60 ml amounts of dip concentrate into the dip tank – see section 4.5 above). When a bath becomes foul, however, always empty it and refill with fresh dip. Dispose of all wash remaining at the end of a day’s dipping.

Dipping:
Sheep must be totally immersed in a sheep bath and all parts of the sheep except the head and ears must remain immersed for not less than one minute.
Keep the sheep moving in the bath and plunge its head under at least once.
Never hold the head down or the sheep will be liable to swallow or inhale some of the wash.
It is important that the dip bath should be emptied and thoroughly cleaned at the end of each day’s dipping or earlier if it becomes very dirty during the day's dipping.
Do not dip more than one sheep for each 2 litres of dip-wash prepared before emptying and preparing fresh dip-wash.
Dispose of all wash remaining at the end of day’s dipping.

Sheep Scab - Its Cure and Prevention
For the purposes of dipping against sheep scab, sheep must be totally immersed in a sheep bath of an approved sheep dip, and all parts of the sheep except the head and ears must remain immersed in the bath for a period which shall in no case be less than one minute.
Plunge the head under at least twice.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary
Care should be taken not to overdose.
Overdosing may invalidate the stated meat withholding times as in 4.11 below

4.11 Withdrawal period(s)

Not suitable for use on sheep that are being milked for human consumption.

5 PHARMACOLOGICAL or IMMUNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
Pharmacotherapeutic class:

Ectoparasiticides for topical use, organophosphorous compounds

ATCvet code:
QP53AF03

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties
Diazinon is an organophosphorus compound.
It is effective against a wide range of insects.
Organophosphorus insecticides are both contact and stomach poisons.
They act by combining with the neutralising cholinesterase at the nerve ganglion of the insect.
Cholinesterases remove acetylcholine.

Two types of this enzyme are recognised,
the first, true acetycholinesterase, is largely specific in its action and is found mainly in erythrocytes, in muscles and in the nervous system.
The second, pseudocholinesterase, a non-specific enzyme capable of hydrolysing a wide variety of esters, occurs in plasma and the nervous system.

Some organophosphorus compounds inhibit one of these enzymes more than the other but few are entirely specific. Owing to their liquid solubility, they are rapidly absorbed.
Used as a sheep dip at a concentration of 0.025%, Diazinon is active locally in the skin and wool.

When the container is fitted correctly into the basket of the dispensing kit, the tilt mechanism allows withdrawal of the maximum amount of dip concentrate from the container.

6.6 Special precautions for the disposal of unused veterinary medicinal products or waste materials derived from the use of such products
Do not contaminate water including ponds, ditches, ground and surface waters.
It is an offence to permit any poisonous, noxious or polluting matter to enter any river, stream or watercourse.
Any unused veterinary medicinal product or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal product should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
Empty containers should not be re-used for any other purpose.
Rinse the empty container three times as directed in the washing instructions provided for the dispensing kit and dispose of all rinsings in the dip tank.

December 2021

Flies start breeding from the end of March.
Total fly eradication is unfeasible, but can be adequately controlled if the right actions are taken before flies have had a chance to establish.

Dipping
For plunge dipping, it is essential to know the capacity of the bath.
Use only the two closed systems to charge the bath and to top up.
Always top up as per instructions; if not, the dip wash will strip out and later sheep will not carry enough ectoparasiticide for it to be effective.
Sheep should never be dipped on a full stomach, when the wool is wet, or when they are heated, tired, thirsty, or suffering from wounds or open sores.
Choose a cool dry day and dip early in the morning.
Rams and fat sheep should be assisted through the bath and lambs dipped separately from the ewes.
It is important to ensure that sheep do not swallow or inhale any wash.
As this is an organophosphorus sheep dip, an interval of at least 14 days should be observed between dipping and dosing with any drench etc., containing levamisole or an organophosphorus mixture. 
Allow dipped sheep to drain in designated draining pens and do not return to pasture until excess dip has been shed. When dipping, use protective clothing, handle equipment carefully and stick to the manufacturer’s instructions.
