Durvet Ivermectin Sheep Drench is a ready-to-use dewormer for sheep. Contains ivermectin as its active ingredient which is known for effectively treating parasite infestations. It controls a broad-spectrum of gastrointestinal infestations in one low-volume dose. The Durvet Ivermectin Sheep Drench is a free-flowing solution that is administered orally to sheep. It features a different chemical formula so there is a low chance of cross-resistance. Provides excellent and powerful control of adult and fourth-stage larvae of lungworms, gastrointestinal roundworms, and any larval stage of the nasal bot. It comes in a convenient formula to easily administer to sheep. Any drenching equipment may be used to administer the solution orally. Give 3 ml of the product per 26-pound body weight.
Ivermectin Sheep Drench may be used in any standard drenching equipment or in any equipment which provides a consistent dose volume. Administer orally at a dose of 3.0 mL per 26 lbs body weight or 200 mcg ivermectin per kilogram of body weight.

Stable for 24 months when stored under normal conditions.
Chemically different, cross-resistance is unlikely in parasite strains which may have developed resistance to other wormers.
Studies indicate that when ivermectin comes in contact with the soil, it readily and tightly binds to the soil and becomes inactive over time. Free ivermectin may adversely affect fish and certain water-born organisms on which they feed. Do not permit water runoff from feedlots to enter lakes, streams, or ground water. Do not contaminate water by direct application or by the improper disposal of drug containers. Spills of Ivermectin Sheep Drench should be contained and soaked up with absorbent towels or into loose soil. Gloves should be worn to prevent skin exposure. All the collected materials (contaminated towels and soil), as well as all used drug containers, should be placed in an impervious film bag (plastic) and disposed of by incineration or in an approved landfill.
