What are the risks for not treating for external parasites?

  • Reduces milk yield by up to 20%
  • Increase incidence of summer mastitis
  • Reduced calf weight gain
  • Downgraded wool quality
  • Reduced reproduction in sheep
  • It only takes 10-20 head fly to have a negative impact on your farm
  • The horn fly will feed off the blood of cattle up to 40 times a day causing irritation of the animal and blood loss

​Why use Spotinor?

Farm productivity and animal welfare can be greatly improved by early application of external parasite treatment such as Spotinor. If treatment is left until the fly population is already a problem it may already be too late.  Spotinor uses deltamethrin which is a highly effective and fast acting insecticide that will help keep the fly population to a minimum.

The table below shows the untreated fly population compared to fly population after Spotinor has been used to treat cattle and sheep.

 

Data Sheet

1 NAME OF THE VETERINARY MEDICINAL PRODUCT
Spotinor 10 mg/ml Spot-on Solution for cattle and sheep.

2 QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE COMPOSITION
Each ml contains
Active substance:
Deltamethrin 10 mg
For a full list of excipients, see section 6.1.

3 PHARMACEUTICAL FORM
Spot-On Solution.
A clear pale gold oily liquid.

4 CLINICAL PARTICULARS
4.1 Target Species
Cattle and Sheep.

4.2 Indications for use, specifying the target species
For the treatment and prevention of infestations by lice and flies on cattle; ticks, lice, keds and established blowfly
strike on sheep and lice and ticks on lambs.
On cattle: For the treatment and prevention of infestations by both sucking and biting lice, including Bovicola bovis,
Solenopotes capillatus, Linognathus vituli and Haematopinus eurysternus in beef and dairy cattle. Also as an aid in
the treatment and prevention of infestations of both biting and nuisance flies including Haematobia irritans, Stomoxys
calcitrans, Musca species and Hydrotaea irritans.
On sheep: For the treatment and prevention of infestations by ticks Ixodes ricinus and by lice (Linognathus ovillus,
Bovicola ovis), keds (Melophagus ovinus) and established blowfly strike (usually Lucilia spp).
On lambs: For the treatment and prevention of infestations by ticks Ixodes ricinus and by lice Bovicola ovis.

4.3 Contraindications
Do not use on convalescent or sick animals.
Do not use in cases of known hypersensitivity to the active substance or any of the excipients.
Extra-label use of the product in the non-target species dogs and cats can lead to toxic neurological signs (ataxia,
convulsions, tremors), digestive signs (hypersalivation, vomiting) and may be fatal.

4.4 Special warnings for each target species
To avoid resistance, the product should only be used if the susceptibility of the local fly population to the active
substance is assured.
Cases of resistance to deltamethrin have been reported in stinging and nuisance flies in cattle and lice in sheep.
The product will reduce the number of flies resting directly on the animal but it is not expected to eliminate all flies on
a farm. The strategic use of the product should, therefore, be based on local and regional epidemiological information
about susceptibility of parasites, and used in association with other pest management methods.
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 ectoparasiticides 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.
If clinical signs do not resolve following treatment, the diagnosis should be revised.

4.5 Special precautions for use
(i) Special precautions for use in animals
The product is for external use only.
Do not apply on or near the animal’s eyes and mucous membranes.
Care should be taken to prevent licking of the product. Avoid use of the product during extremely hot weather and
ensure animals have adequate access to water.
The product should only be administered onto undamaged skin as toxicity is possible due to absorption from major skin
lesions. However, signs of local irritation may occur after treatment as skin may be already affected by infestation.
(ii) Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the product to the animal
Persons with known hypersensitivity to the product or one of its components should avoid contact with the veterinary
medicinal product.
Wear protective clothing including waterproof apron and boots and impervious gloves when either applying the
product or handling recently treated animals.
Remove heavily contaminated clothing immediately and wash before use.
Wash splashes from skin immediately with soap and plenty of water.
Wash hands and exposed skin after handling this product and before meals.
In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of clean, running water and seek medical advice.
In case of accidental ingestion, wash out mouth immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
Do not smoke, drink or eat while handling the product.
This product contains deltamethrin which may produce tingling, itchiness and blotchy redness on exposed skin. If you
feel unwell after working with this product, consult your doctor and show this label.
To the physician:
Advice on clinical management is available from the National Poisons Information Service.
(iii) Other Precautions
Deltamethrin is very toxic to dung fauna, aquatic organisms and honey bees, is persistent in soils and may accumulate
in sediments.
The risk to aquatic ecosystems and dung fauna can be reduced by avoiding too frequent and repeated use of
deltamethrin (and other synthetic pyrethroids) in cattle and sheep, e.g. by using a single treatment per year on the same
pasture.
The risk to aquatic ecosystems will be further reduced by keeping treated cattle away from water bodies for four weeks
after treatment.

4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)
Squamosis and pruritus have been seen in some cattle during the 48 hours after treatment.

4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay
Laboratories studies (rat, rabbits) have not produced any evidence of teratogenic or embryotoxic effects.
No studies have been conducted with the product in pregnant cows and ewes.
Use of the product during pregnancy and lactation in cows and ewes must be according to the benefit/risk assessment
made by the responsible veterinarian.

4.8 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction
Do not use with any other insecticide or acaricide.

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route
For external use.
Dose:
Cattle: 100 mg of deltamethrin per animal corresponding to 10 ml of product.
Sheep: 50 mg of deltamethrin per animal corresponding to 5 ml of product
Lambs (under 10 kg bodyweight or 1 month of age): 25 mg of deltamethrin per animal corresponding to 2.5 ml of
product.
Administration: Apply a single dose with the special 'Squeeze 'n' Pour' dispenser pack or the Spot-On Applicator in
one spot on the mid-line of the back at the shoulders. For blowfly strike on sheep, see following specific indication
directions.
Lice on cattle: One application will generally eradicate all lice. Complete clearance of all lice may take 4 - 5 weeks
during which time lice hatch from the eggs and are killed. A very few lice may survive on a small minority of animals.
Flies on cattle: For the treatment and prevention of infestations by biting and non-biting flies. Where horn-flies
predominate, treatment and prevention of infestations can be expected for 4 - 8 weeks. Treatment for flies should not be
repeated within four weeks.
Ticks on sheep: Application to the mid-point of the shoulders will provide useful treatment and prevention of
infestations by ticks attaching to animals of all ages, for up to 6 weeks after treatment.
Keds and lice on sheep: Application to the mid-point of the shoulders of sheep in short or long fleece will reduce the
incidence of a biting louse or ked infestation over a 4 - 6 week period after treatment.
It is advisable to:
- treat shortly after shearing (animals with short fleece),
- keep treated sheep separated from untreated sheep to avoid re-infestation.
N.B. For treatment and prevention of infestations by ticks, keds and lice on sheep, the fleece should be parted and the
Spot-On applied to the skin of the animal.
Established blowfly strike on sheep: Apply directly to the maggot infected area as soon as the fly strike is seen. One
application will ensure blowfly larvae are killed in a short time. In the case of more advanced strike lesions, clipping
out of stained wool before treatment is advisable.
Lice and ticks on lambs: Application to the mid-point of the shoulders will provide useful treatment and prevention of
infestations by ticks for up to 6 weeks after treatment, and will reduce the incidence of biting lice over a 4-6 week
period after treatment.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary
Some adverse effects have been seen following overdose. These include paraesthesia and irritation in cattle, as well as
intermittent or attempted urination in young lambs. These have been shown to be mild, transient and resolve without
treatment.

4.11 Withdrawal Period(s)
Cattle:
Meat and offal: 17 days
Milk: zero hours
Sheep:
Meat and offal: 35 days
Milk: Not authorised for use in ewes producing milk for human consumption.

5 PHARMACOLOGICAL or IMMUNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
Pharmacotherapeutic group: Ectoparasiticide for topical use, including insecticides. Pyrethrins and pyrethroids.
ATCvet code: QP53AC11

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties
Deltamethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid possessing insecticidal and acaricidal activity. It is one of a large family of
pyrethroid esters which have evolved as synthetic analogues of the original insecticidal extracts isolated from powdered
pyrethrum flowers. Deltamethrin is an alpha- cyano pyrethroid and is a member of the second generation of
pyrethroids in which the overall stability of the molecule is improved with correspondingly increased resistance to
photo- and bio-degradation and enhanced insecticidal activity. It is more potently toxic to insects and acarines because
of the slower rate of metabolism.
The precise mode of insecticidal activity of pyrethroids remains uncertain, but they are potent neurotoxins in insects,
causing failure in sensory coordination and disorganised motor activity, hence the 'knock-down' effect. Pyrethroids are
metabolised through oxidative and neurotoxic pathways far more rapidly in mammals, so that neurotoxic effects can
only occur at dosages which are many orders of magnitude greater than those required for ectoparasitic activity.
Two physiological mechanisms are likely to contribute to deltamethrin-resistance: mutation of the molecular
deltamethrin target or through metabolic enzyme glutathione-S-transferases.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic properties
After dermal application, deltamethrin is slightly absorbed through skin of cattle and sheep.
Pyrethroids are metabolised through oxidative and neurotoxic pathways.
The main route of excretion of the absorbed amount in the target animal is the faeces.

5.3 Environmental properties
Deltamethrin has the potential to adversely affect non-target organisms, both in water and in dung. Following
treatment, excretion of potentially toxic levels of deltamethrin may take place over a period of 4 weeks. Faeces
containing deltamethrin excreted onto pasture by treated animals may reduce the abundance of dung feeding organisms
which may impact on the dung degradation.
Deltamethrin is very toxic to dung fauna, aquatic organisms and honey bees, is persistent in soils and may accumulate
in sediments.
