Ivomec® (ivermectin) – Effective dewormer, trusted for more than 35 years

Advance Deworming

As parasites evolve, so does deworming. It’s not enough to focus on production goals — although that’s important. Now we must develop a system that will be sustainable for the generations that follow. That means using the right products at the right time for the right reasons.

Get the Most Out of Your Dewormer

Douglas Ensley, DVM, Boehringer Ingelheim, talks about the history of deworming products, and how to use them responsibly.

Top reasons to use IVOMEC Pour-On:

1) Excellent mange and lice control

  • It offers up to 56 days of control of biting and sucking lice.4

2) Broad-spectrum control

  • It reliably controls 33 species and stages of internal and external parasites including lice and
    mange sucking lice.5

3) Improves cattle performance

  • When left untreated, parasites suppress appetite, reduce feed intake and negatively impact
    the animal’s immune system. Using IVOMEC brand products can enhance your profitability by
    controlling these damaging parasites.1,2


Dosage and Safety of IVOMEC Pour-On:

Dosage Information

  • The product is formulated only for external application to beef and dairy cattle. The dose rate is
    1 mL/10 kg (22 pounds) of body weight. The product should be applied topically along the backline in a narrow strip extending from the withers to the tailhead.

Important Safety Information

Do not treat cattle within 48 days of slaughter. Do not use in female dairy cattle of breeding age or in veal calves. Do not use in other animal species not on the label, as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result.

Top reasons to use IVOMEC Plus:

1) Effective active ingredients

  • The two active ingredients in IVOMEC Plus — ivermectin and clorsulon — combine to control more than 30 species and stages of external and internal parasites, including adult liver flukes.6

2) Proven weight gain

  • A study showed that cattle treated for liver flukes, internal parasites and external parasites had improved feed intake and a higher average daily gain than those treated only for internal and external parasites, resulting in a significant total gain of 28.5 pounds more.7

3) Proven reproductive benefits

  • In a four-year study, replacement heifers treated for roundworms, external parasites and liver flukes had 15 percent more calves than heifers treated for worms and external parasites only.8


Dosage and Safety of IVOMEC Plus:

Dosage Information

  • It is formulated to deliver the recommended dose level of 200 mcg ivermectin/kg and 2 mg clorsulon/kg given subcutaneously behind the shoulder at the rate of 1 mL per 110 pounds (50 kg) body weight.
  • IVOMEC Plus should be given only by subcutaneous injection at a dose volume of 1 mL per
    110 pounds (50 kg) body weight. This volume will deliver 10 mg ivermectin and 100 mg clorsulon.

Important Safety Information

Do not treat cattle within 21 days of slaughter. Do not use in female dairy cattle of breeding age or in veal calves. Do not use in other animal species not on the label, as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result.

Top reason to use IVOMEC 1%:

1) Broad-spectrum control

  • Reliably controls 36 species and stages of internal and external parasites, including the brown stomach worm, lungworm, barber’s pole worm and sucking lice.9

Cattle typically do not acquire parasites at the feedlot itself. A parasite problem occurs when cattle arrive at a feedlot already infected with parasites from their operation of origin. Deworming all incoming animals with products like IVOMEC 1% can prevent costly internal and external parasites from spreading to other animals.

Dosage and Safety of IVOMEC 1%:

Dosage Information

  • IVOMEC Injection should be given only by subcutaneous injection under the loose skin in front of or behind the shoulder at the recommended dose level of 200 mcg of ivermectin per kilogram of body weight.
  • Each mL of IVOMEC contains 10 mg of ivermectin, sufficient to treat 110 pounds (50 kg) of body weight (maximum 10 mL per injection site).

Important Safety Information

Do not treat cattle within 35 days of slaughter. Do not use in female dairy cattle of breeding age or in veal calves. Do not treat swine within 18 days of slaughter. Do not use in other animal species not on the label, as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result.
