Always read the label and all enclosed information for Levacide Injection before administering to animals!

After being housed for the winter cattle's immunity to worms from the year before is lowered, this means that lungworm disease and gut worms can infect grazing cattle and spread easily throughout your herd during the summer months. Lungworm and gut worm infection can have a highly negative effect on the health of your herd which causes not only weight loss and even in severe cases death, but also has a strong effect on the profit margins of the farm.Levacide Pour-on solution is easy to use and highly effective against these parasites.

Why use an injection over a pour?

  • Injections are the most reliable way to maximise the effect of the active ingredient
  • Injections guarantee the active ingredient is delivered rapidly and in high concentration
  • With injections, factors such as skin and coat thickness, spillage of product and weather do not affect dosage
Signs and effects of infected cattle
Infection:Gut Worm

Symptoms: Diarrhoea, decreased appetite, loss of weight

Effects: Gutworm can cause severe damage to the stomach and small intestine which will cause parasitic gastroenteritis, this will not only negatively effect the health of the animal but will effect the profitability for the farmer.

Infection: Lungworm

Symptoms:Short, sharp cough that becomes worse with exercise, in sever cases the animal will have obvious difficulty breathing.

Effects:Lung worm infections cause a highsusceptibility to respiratory viruses and bacteria. Infected cattle are prone to contracting severe bronchial pneumonia which left untreated can lead to death.

4 CLINICAL PARTICULARS
4.1 Target Species
Cattle, Sheep

4.2 Indications for use, specifying the target species
Levacide Injection is a broad spectrum anthelmintic for use in the treatment and control of nematode infections. It
should be used in cases of parasitic gastro-enteritis and lungworm disease caused by mature and developing immature
forms of those organisms sensitive to treatment with Levamisole Hydrochloride including the following:
Lungworms (adult and larval stages): Dictyocaulus spp.
Gastro-intestinal worms (adult and larval stages):
Trichostrongylus spp.
Cooperia spp.

Haemonchus spp.
Nematodirus spp.
Bunostomum spp.
Oesophagostomum spp.
Chabertia spp.

Excipients
Methyl Parahydroxybenzoate (E218) 1.5 mg
Sodium Metabisulphite 1.5 mg

4.4 Special warnings for each target species
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 bodyweight, 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 tests 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 precaution(s) for use in animals
After treatment animals should be moved to clean pasture in order to prevent re-infection. Where this is not done,
further dosing at 21 day intervals may be necessary.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands and exposed skin before meals and after work.
Wash splashes from eyes and skin immediately.
Take off immediately any contaminated clothing.
Levamisole can cause idiosyncratic reactions and serious blood disorders in a very small number of people. If
symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, vomiting or abdominal discomfort are experienced when using the product, or
sore mouth/throat or fever occur shortly afterwards, then medical advice should be sought immediately.

4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)
Although normally non-irritant, Levacide Injection may occasionally cause local reaction at the site of injection. This
should resolve naturally in a short period of time.

4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay
The product can be safely administered to pregnant or lactating animals. However, care should be taken to avoid
unnecessary stress when handling heavily pregnant animals.

4.8 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction
Concurrent treatment with products containing organophosphorus compounds or diethylcarbamazine citrate should be
avoided. These compounds should not be administered within a period of 14 days before or after treatment with
Levamisole. Levamisole is not affected by benzimidazole resistance.

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route
Levacide Injection should be administered by subcutaneous injection at a rate of 7.5 mg Levamisole hydrochloride per
kg bodyweight (1 ml/10 kg bodyweight).
To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible. 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.
Use properly calibrated dosing equipment.
The veterinary surgeon should give advice regarding appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve
adequate parasite control.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary
Levacide Injection is safe for use in cattle and sheep at the recommended dosages. However, if recommended doses
are exceeded animals may exhibit signs of impaired motor function such as muscle tremors and increased salivation,
which are of a temporary nature.

4.11Withdrawal Period(s)
Not to be used in cattle and sheep producing milk for human consumption. Cattle and sheep may be slaughtered for
human consumption only after 14 days from the last treatment.

5 PHARMACOLOGICAL or IMMUNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
Pharmacotherapeutic group: Anthelmintics, imidazothiazoles
ATCvet code: QP52AE01

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties
Levamisole Hydrochloride is the levo isomer of dl 2, 3, 5, 6-Tetrahydro-6-phenyl-imidazo (2,l-b) thiazole
Hydrochloride. Levamisole was found to be active against adult and immature gastro-intestinal and pulmonary
nematodes when administered to experimentally infected animals by the oral, subcutaneous, intramuscular or
intraperitoneal routes. It is thought to act by paralysing the susceptible parasites which are then expelled from the
alimentary canal.
