Product Description

Albex 2.5% SC is a broad spectrum multi-purpose anthelmintic for the control of mature and developing immature forms of gastro-intestinal roundworms, lungworms, tapeworms and adult liver fluke in sheep and cattle. The product is also ovicidal against fluke and roundworm eggs. The additional selenium and cobalt in this product are trace elements of use as nutritional supplements.

In sheep it is active against benzimidazole-susceptible strains of the following species:

Roundworms: Ostertagia, Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Nematodirus (including N. battus), Chabertia and Oesophagostomum. It is usually effective against inhibited larvae of Ostertagia. Lungworms: Dictyocaulus filaria. Tapeworms: Moniezia spp. Adult liver fluke: Fasciola hepatica.

In cattle it is active against the following species:

Roundworms: Ostertagia, Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Nematodirus, Oesophagostomum, Bunostomum, Cooperia, and Strongyloides spp. It is usually effective against inhibited larvae of Cooperia and Ostertagia. Lungworms: Dictyocaulus viviparus. Tapeworms: Moniezia spp. Adult liver fluke: Fasciola hepatica.

Albex 2.5% SC is ovicidal and will kill fluke and roundworm eggs, thus reducing pasture contamination.

Dosage and administration:
For oral administration only. To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. Estimate bodyweight accurately.

Sheep
For the control of roundworms, lungworms, tapeworms and fluke and roundworm eggs, 5 mg albendazole per kg bodyweight which is equivalent to 2.0 ml Albex 2.5% SC per 10 kg bodyweight.

For the additional treatment of adult liver fluke (chronic fascioliasis) in sheep, 7.5 mg albendazole per kg bodyweight, which is equivalent to 3 ml Albex 2.5% SC per 10 kg bodyweight.

Do not dose ewes at the `fluke and worm dose' (7.5 mg/kg) during tupping or for 1 month after removing the rams. Can be safely used during lactation.

Cattle
For the control of roundworms, lungworms, tapeworms and fluke and roundworm eggs, 7.5 mg albendazole per kg bodyweight which is equivalent to 15 ml Albex 2.5% SC per 50 kg bodyweight.

For the additional treatment of adult liver fluke (chronic fascioliasis) in cattle, 10 mg albendazole per kg bodyweight, which is equivalent to 20 ml Albex 2.5% SC per 50 kg bodyweight.

Withdrawal periods

Cattle may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 14 days from the last treatment. Milk for human consumption may be taken from cows only after 60 hours from the last treatment.

Do not dose ewes at the `fluke and worm dose' (7.5 mg/kg) during tupping or for 1 month after removing the rams. Can be safely used during lactation.

Do not administer other cobalt and selenium supplements concurrently with this product unless specifically advised by your veterinary surgeon.

Further information

Selenium and cobalt are included in Albex 2.5% SC as nutritional supplements and are not intended to be used therapeutically. Administration of ionophores to lambs has been shown to enhance selenium bioavailability. Concurrent administration of ionophores and Albex 2.5% SC may therefore lead to an increased risk of selenium toxicity.
