Key Features of Topimec Super

  • A  broad spectrum anti parasitic for cattle.
  • Helps treat and control of gastro-intestinal roundworms, lungworms, adult liver fluke, eyeworms, warbles, mites      and lice
  • Can be used in beef and non lactating dairy cattle.

Identifying infected cattle:

It can sometimes be hard to see the signs of  fluke in infected cattle and a slight decline in the performance of the herd can be hard to associate to a single factor. Yet liver fluke affects at least 50% of all Irish herds. The following list will show some of the common signs that your herd has been infected by liver fluke.

In Young Stock

  • Weakened calves
  • Reduced weight at the time of weaning caused by both the poor quality and quantity of the milk being produced
  • Poor feed conversion
  • On occasion, anaemia, loss of weight and even death in animals younger than 2 years old.

In Breeding Stock

  • Weakened or incapacitated cows, especially in later stages of pregnancy.
  • Lower fertility rates which leads to an increase in culls
  • Sale weight of cull cows reduced
  • Production of milk is greatly reduced
  • Reduction in the nutritional value of the milk
  • Lower conception rates
  • Slower growth in heifers
  • Delay in the onset of first oestrus in the herd
  • Poor reproductive performance from bulls

Persistent Activity

When cattle have to graze on pasture contaminated with infective larvae of cattle nematodes, treatment with the product at the recommended dose rate can control re-infection with
Haemonchus placei and Cooperia spp., acquired up to 14 days after treatment,
Ostertagia ostertagi and Oesophagostomum radiatum acquired up to 21 days after treatment and
Dictyocalus vivparus acquired up to 28 days after treatment.

4.3 Contraindications

Do not use intramuscularly or intravenously.
This product is registered for use in cattle only.
Do not use in other species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may occur (especially Collies, Old English Sheepdogs and related breeds and crosses). 
Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.

 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 (if any).

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.
Resistance to Ivermectin has been reported in Ostertagia ostertagi and Cooperia species in cattle within the EU. 

Therefore, the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of these helminth species and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.

4.5 Special precautions for use

Special precautions for use in animals

None

This product does not contain any antimicrobial preservative. 
Swab septum before removing each dose
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the medicinal product to animals
Do not eat, drink or smoke while handling the product.
Wash hands after use.
Direct contact with the skin should be avoided.  T
ake care to avoid self-administration; the product may cause local irritation and/or pain at the site of injection.
In case of accidental self injection, seek medical advice and show the label to the physician. 
In the event of accidental skin contact, wash the affected area immediately with soap and water. 
If accidental eye exposure occurs, flush the eyes immediately with water.

Other precautions

The product is very toxic to aquatic organisms and dung insects.
Treated cattle should not have direct access to ponds, streams or ditches for 14 days after treatment.
Long term effects on dung insects caused by continuous or repeated use cannot be excluded.
Therefore repeated treatment of animals on a pasture with an ivermectin-containing product within a season should only be given in the absence of alternative treatments or approaches to maintain animal/flock health, as advised by a veterinarian

4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:
- Very common (more than 1 in 10 animals displaying adverse reaction(s) during the course of one treatment).
- Common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals).
- Uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals).
- Rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals).
- Very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals, including isolated reports).

In very rare cases transitory discomfort has been observed in some cattle following subcutaneous administration. In very rare cases soft tissue swellings may occur at the site of injection. 
These reactions resolve over time without treatment.

4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

The product can be administered to beef cows at any stage of pregnancy or lactation provided that the milk is not intended for human consumption.
The product will not affect the fertility of cows and bulls and can be given to all ages of animals including young calves.

4.8 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

No interactions have been identified with other products.

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route

Dosage and duration of treatment

The product should be given at the recommended dosage level of 1 ml/50 kg bodyweight (based on a dosage level of 200 mcg ivermectin plus 2 mg clorsulon per kg bodyweight).

Method of administration

The product should be administered only be subcutaneous injection under the loose skin in front of, or behind, the shoulder.
Divide doses greater than 10 ml between two injection sites.
A sterile 17 gauge ½-inch (15-20 mm) needle is recommended.
When using the 500 ml pack size use only automatic syringe equipment.   
For the 50 ml pack size, use of a multidose syringe is recommended. 
When the temperature of the product is below 5ºC, difficulty in administration may be encountered due to increased viscosity.
Warming the product and injection equipment to about 15ºC will greatly increase the ease with which the product can be injected.
Different injection sites should be used for other parenteral products.
The timing of treatment should be based on epidemiological factors and should be customised for each individual farm.

A dosing program should be established by a qualified professional person.
To ensure a correct dosage, 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, to avoid under- or over-dosing, they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary

The administration of 5 ml per 50 kg bodyweight (5 x the recommended dose rate) resulted in injection site lesions (including swelling, sensitivity, oedema and inflammation). 
No other drug-related adverse reactions are expected.

4.11 Withdrawal period(s)

Meat and offal:  66 days 

Not authorised for use in animals producing milk for human consumption.

5 PHARMACOLOGICAL or IMMUNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

ATC Vet Code: QP54AA51

Pharmacotherapeutic Group:
Endectocides,
macrocyclic lactones,
avermectins,
ivermectin combinations

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

Ivermectin


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 hyperpolarization 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.

Clorsulon

Clorsulon is a sulfonamide. Clorsulonis rapidly absorbed into the circulating blood. Erythrocytes with bound drug as well as plasma are ingested by Fasciola spp. Adult Fasciola spp. are killed by clorsulon because of inhibition of enzymes in the glycolytic pathway, which is their primary source of energy.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic particulars

After subcutaneous administration of 2 mg clorsulon and 0.2 mg ivermectin per kg bodyweight, maximum plasma concentrations of ivermectin (Cmax: 65.80 ng/ml) were achieved 1-2 days after treatment and maximum plasma concentrations of clorsulon (Cmax: 2.58 µg/ml) were achieved approximately 8 hours after treatment.
The terminal half life for the two active ingredients were determined as follows: Ivermectin approximately 3.79 days and Clorsulon approximately 3.58 days.

 Cattle Injectables
Injectables should be given according to the manufacturer’s instructions at the recommended injection site.
• Always use a clean, sterile syringe and needle. If using a multiple injection gun, ensure the needle is disinfected between injections, e.g. with an automatic sterilisation system.
• If the site to be injected is dirty, clean the skin and swab with an alcohol-impregnated wipe or cotton wool.
• Before injecting, check the expiry date and read the instructions of the product to be used. Some products need to be shaken before use.
• Use the correct-sized needle according to the size of the animal and site of injection.
• Ensure the animal is adequately restrained before attempting the injection.
• Take care to ensure it is given subcutaneously and not intramuscularly. Raise a fold of skin at the injection site (mainly neck but some are ear) recommended by the product manufacturer and inject carefully into the space created.
• If a large dose is to be delivered, it may be advisable to split the dose between two injection sites. After the injection, briefly massage the site to improve the dispersal of the injected material.
• Dispose of the needle and syringe in appropriate clinical waste and sharps containers.
