Note to user

PARAMECTIN INJECTION contains 10 mg/mL abamectin,a member of the macrocyclic lactone group of compounds. It is effective against eternal parasites sensitive to this family. Resistance can develop to any anthelmintic. Ask your local veterinary practitioner or animal health adviser for recommended parasite management practices for your area to reduce development of resistance. It is advisable that a resistance test be conducted regularly when using any parasite treatment.

The low-volume dosage level of PARAMECTIN Injection makes it convenient for use with most syringes or automatic injectors. Field studies have demonstrated an adequate margin of safety. Pregnant sheep may be treated provided normal care is taken in handling.
Transitory discomfort has been observed in some sheep following subcutaneous administration. A low incidence of soft-tissue swelling at the injection site has been observed. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Toxicity seen as unsteady gait and sometimes death has occurred due to overdosing in some Lambs. To avoid overdosing, special care must be exercised in estimating bodyweight and setting injection equipment.
