Email

2.2LT - 5LT - 13LT
Description

Fasinex® is a ready-to-use oral drench.

The active ingredient in Fasinex is triclabendazole (240g/L). Fasinex is effective against triclabendazole-sensitive strains of Fasciola hepatica (liver fluke).

Triclabendazole has unique efficacy against early immature, immature and mature stages of Liver fluke. This makes it particularly useful for treating outbreaks of acute and chronic fascioliasis, and for the strategic control of Fasciola infections.

The efficacy of Fasinex against all three stages of liver fluke also accelerates the recovery of health, and thus productivity.

Indications

For the treatment of Triclabendazole-susceptible early immature, immature and mature liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) in cattle.

SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE.

Fasinex is given by a single oral administration and is palatable to cows.

Suspensions shaken well are suitable for most drenching guns. Wash out equipment with water after use.

Fasinex may be given at the same time as animals are treated for lice. Fasinex may be given to calves, pregnant cows, or weak or debilitated animals.

A representative sample of animals should be weighed before treatment. The dose rate should be based on the heaviest cattle in each group (bulls, cows, steers, calves, etc.). DO NOT underdose. Where there is a large variation in size within the group, draft into two or more lines based on body weight to avoid excessive overdosing.

In areas where Black Disease is known to occur, adequate vaccination procedures are advised.

For parasite management recommendations for your area to reduce development of resistance contact your local veterinarian or animal health adviser.
