Albendazole is a broad spectrum multi-purpose anthelmintic for the control of mature and developing immature forms of gastro-intestinal roundworms, lungworms, tapeworms and adult liver fluke in cattle and sheep. The product is also ovicidal against fluke and roundworm eggs. In cattle it is active against the following species: Roundworms: Ostertagia, Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Nematodirus, Oesophagostomum, Bunostomum, Cooperia, and Strongyloides spp. It is usually effective against inhibited larvae of Cooperia and Ostertagia; Lungworms: Dictyocaulus viviparous. Tapeworms: Moniezia spp.; Adult liver fluke: Fasciola hepatica. In sheep it is active against benzimidazole-susceptible strains of the following species: Roundworms: Teladorsargia (Ostertagia), Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Nematodirus (including N. battus), Chabertia and Oesophagostomum. It is usually effective against inhibited larvae of Ostertagia. Lungworms: Dictyocaulus filaria; Tapeworms: Moniezia spp.; Adult liver fluke: Fasciola hepatica.

Milk for human consumption may be taken from cows only after 60 hours from the last treatment. Do not use in sheep producing milk for human consumption. Do not dose ewes at the 'fluke and worm dose' (7.5 mg/kg) during tupping or for 1 month after removing the rams.


Operator warnings

Direct contact with the skin should be kept to a minimum. Wear suitable protective clothing including impermeable rubber gloves. In the event of accidental eye exposure, flush eye thoroughly with running water. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. In the event of accidental skin exposure wash the affected area with soap and water. If irritation persists seek medical advice. Wash hands after use.


Environmental warnings

DANGEROUS to fish and aquatic life. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with product or used containers. Any unused veterinary medicinal product or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal products should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.


General precautions about Albendazole oral suspension 10%


For animal treatment only. Keep out of the reach of children. Do not use if known hypersensitivity to active ingredient. Avoid introduction of contamination during use. Care must be taken not to damage the pharyngeal region, particularly in sheep, when dosing. Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible before calculating the dosage. Intensive use or misuse of anthelmintics can give rise to resistance. To reduce this risk, dosing programmes should be discussed with your Veterinary Surgeon. Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective threapy:

Too frequent and repeated us of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.

Underdosing which may be due to underestimation of bodyweight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any).

Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the test result(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.

Resistance to benzimidazoles (which includes albendazole) has been reported in Telodorsagia (Ostertagia) Haemonchus, Cooperia and Trichostrongylus species in small ruminants in a number of countries in the EU. Resistance to albendazole has been reported i Copperia and Tedadorsagia (Ostertagia) species in cattle in developed countries such as New Zealand. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about the susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.
