STRIKER 6

COMPOSITION

Ivermectin 6 mg – Excipients up to 1 g.

 

PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Ivermectin is a semisynthetic derivative of avermectin and has a broad spectrum of activity against a wide variety of arthropods and nematodes of wild and domestic animals. Ivermectin paralyses nematodes and arthropods by stimulating GABA-mediated chloride ion conductivity. The effects of ivermectin are irreversible and prolonged.

In general, the macrocyclic lactones have shown good efficacy against helminths of swine. As a group, efficacy against Trichuris has been variable, and remains the dose-limiting helminth for swine. The macrocyclic lactones have been evaluated against: Oesophagostomum spp., Ascaris suum, Strongyloides ransomi, Trichuris suis, Metastrongylus spp., Stephanuris dentatus and Hyostrongylus rubidus.

Ivermectin is well recognised as effective parasiticide with strong activity against mites and lice, and the high level of activity and the availability made it the standard for controlling mange and lice in swine.

 

TARGET SPECIES

Pigs.

 

INDICATIONS

For the treatment and control of gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, lice and mange in adult and growing pigs.

 

STRIKER 6 effectively controls the following parasites of pigs:

Gastro-intestinal worms: Ascaris suum (adults and 4th-stage larvae) – Hyostrongylus rubidus (adults and 4th-stage larvae) – Oesophagostomum ssp. (adults and 4th-stage larvae) – Strongyloides ransomi (adults)*

Lungworms: Metastrongylus spp. (adults)

Lice: Haematopinus suis.

Mange mites: Sarcoptes scabiei var. suis

 

*STRIKER 6 for pigs given to pregnant sows before farrowing effectively controls transmission via the milk of S. ransomi to piglets.

Since louse eggs can take up to three weeks to hatch, re-treatment may be necessary.

Since the effect of Ivermectin is not immediate, avoid contact between treated and untreated pigs for at least one week after completion of the treatment program.

Exposure of treated pigs to infected animals, contaminated premises, soil or pasture may result in reinfection.

 

CONTRA-INDICATIONS

Do not use for any other animal species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may occur.

 

DOSAGE AND MODE OF ADMINISTRATION

STRIKER 6 must be incorporated in feed and fed for seven consecutive days at the recommended dose rate of 100 mcg of Ivermectin per kg of bodyweight per day.

The appropriate inclusion rate of Premix, in kg per ton of feed, can be calculated as follows:

 

Premix inclusion rate (kgs/ton of feed) á =

0.1 x average bodyweight (kgs)

6 x average daily feed intake (kgs)

 

growing Pigs:

The recommended dose level of 100 micrograms of Ivermectin per kg of bodyweight is obtained under most circumstances for pigs up to 40kgs of bodyweight by including 333g

of STRIKER 6 in each ton of finished feed. Striker 6 must be thoroughly mixed in the finished feed, and fed continuously as the only ration for seven consecutive days.

In pigs weighing more than 40kg, average daily feed consumption may fall below 5% of bodyweight, particularly if they are on a restricted feeding program or where pigs are fed

a high protein ration. Therefore for pigs weighing 40kgs to 100kgs, include 400g of

STRIKER 6 per ton of feed.

 

Adult pigs:

The recommended dose level for adult pigs is achieved in most circumstances by thoroughly mixing 1.67kgs of STRIKER 6 in each ton of finished feed.

The resulting medicated feed should be fed at a rate of 1kg per 100kgs of bodyweight each day for seven days.

 

Where medicated feed is fed as part of the ration, it is recommended that the STRIKER 6 medicated feed is fed first. After this is consumed, any remaining daily feed allocation should be given. This should be repeated for seven consecutive days.

Alternatively, where dry feed intake can be accurately measured and all the animals to be treated have a similar bodyweight, the inclusion rate can be calculated using previous formula. This assumes the total ration is to be medicated.

 

STRIKER 6 can be administered to sows at any stage of pregnancy or lactation.

STRIKER 6 can be used in breeding sows and boars and will not affect fertility.

Recommended treatment program:

Growing pigs

Groups of growing pigs should be treated for seven consecutive days on transfer to clean quarters. Where an all-in-all-out system is not possible, it is recommended that the parasite control program should start with all the growing pigs already in the house.

 

Adult pigs

All breeding pigs should be treated in a blanket program every 6 months or as often as necessary. A treatment will be of particular use before moving sows to clean quarters or

a fresh paddock.

 

UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS

None known.

 

SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS FOR USE AND WARNINGS

To ensure thorough dispersion of the product, it should first be mixed with a suitable quantity of feed ingredients before incorporation in the final mix.áThe product will remain stable in finished feed for three months when stored below 25░C in a dry place. It can be incorporated in pelleted feed, preconditioned with steam for up to 10 seconds at a temperature not exceeding 85░C. Do not smoke or eat while handling the product.á Wash hands after use.
