Avenge Pour-On 20L
Directions for use
This product can be used on all adult sheep up to 7 days off-shears and on unshorn lambs up to 2 months of age. Apply the entire dose to sheep under 30kg as a single broadband stripe from poll to tail butt. For sheep over 30kg, apply half the dose as a broadband stripe either side of the midline from the mid neck to the butt of the tail. The stripes should be no further than 10cm apart. Refer to the diagrams below. A representative sample of animals should be weighed before treatment. Dose the mob to the heaviest animal by liveweight in each group (ewes, wethers, rams, lambs). DO NOT underdose. Where there is a large variation in size within the group (e.g. lambs), dose rate should be based on the label directions for each weight range. Drafting into two or more lines may be appropriate, to avoid excessive overdosing.
Apply product only with the Bayer 6-stripe applicator. To prevent reinfestation treated sheep must not be mixed with lice free sheep until 6 weeks after treatment. Live lice on ewes treated within 6 weeks of lambing can infect lambs from these ewes. Sheep must be treated within 7 days of shearing. Unshorn lambs can be treated up to 2 months of age. Efficacy is not affected by moderate rainfall either before or after treatment (50 mm rain 1 hour prior to treatment and/or 12.5 mm 2 hours after treatment and/or 25 mm 24 hours after treatment). Treated sheep must not be mixed with lousy sheep. Do not use on sheep which have not been cleanly shorn for any reason eg., mycotic dermatitis. Management practices which promote good lice control such as complete musters, accurate treatment of every animal according to label, ensuring all animals can be treated at the same time, no split shearings, stock-proof fencing to prevent external introductions, quarantine and lice treatment of all newly purchased stock are essential for effective lice control. Treated sheep could potentially develop backline dermatitis following prolonged exposure to extreme heat and sunlight without access to shade. Do not leave container, hose or applicator in the sun for long periods of time. AVENGE® POUR-ON may be used in conjunction with worm control drenches and at the same time as vaccination. AVENGE® POUR-ON contains a blue dye to identify treated sheep. This dye is scourable from the wool. The product can be detrimental to certain plastics, paints and surface finishes. Avoid contact with such surfaces. AVENGE® POUR ON is safe for use on breeding rams.
