Advice on correct administration
To ensure administration of a 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. No special control of diet is necessary before or after treatment. Where a dosing device is used, care must be taken to avoid causing injury to the mouth and pharynx when dosing lambs and sheep. Care must be taken also, to avoid choking and ab-ingestis pneumonia.
Meat and offal:
Cattle: 28 days.
Sheep: 4 days.
Milk: 3 days.
People with known hypersensitivity to albendazole or to the product’s excipients should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product. To prevent any unpleasant effects, personal protective equipment consisting in rubber gloves and goggles should be worn when administering the product. Wash hands and exposed skin after use.
In case of accidental ingestion or the occurrence of symptoms characterized by skin rash, seek medical advice. Serious symptoms such as swelling of face, lips or eye lids, accompanied by breath difficulties, are life-threatening symptoms and need immediate medical attention.
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, that may be due to underestimation of body weight, 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.
Do not administer the product during the first month of pregnancy in ewes and cows.
