The video segment topic, “Resistance,” explains the cycle of resistance and offers information on the latest technology in parasite control.
“With numerous parasite control products available, it can be overwhelming for producers to evaluate each option,” says Steve Vandeberg, Director of Endectocide Marketing, Merial. “We hope this video segment will be a valuable resource for producers so they can make decisions when it comes to parasite control and resistance.”
LONGRANGE (eprinomectin) provides parasite control while eliminating the need for multiple treatments per season. Its THERAPHASE™ formulation offers pharmacokinetics that allow LONGRANGE to work for an extended period of time and then quickly leave the animal’s system. The short amount of time at sub-therapeutic concentrations helps ensure LONGRANGE doesn’t select for resistance any more than other current dewormers. LONGRANGE is a prescription product and must be obtained through a prescription from a veterinarian.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: Do not treat within 48 days of slaughter. Not for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows, or in veal calves. Post-injection site damage (e.g., granulomas, necrosis) can occur. These reactions have disappeared without treatment.
