Dosage

Shake before use.

Piglets: Individual animal treatment. Each pig to be treated on day 3-5 of life with a single oral dose of 0.4 ml per kg bodyweight. Due to the small volumes required to treat individual piglets, use of dosing equipment with a dose accuracy of 0.1 ml is recommended. Treatment during an outbreak will be of limited value for the individual piglet because of damage to the small intestine having already occurred.

Calves: Each animal should be treated with a single oral dose of 3.0 ml per 10 kg body weight.

For the treatment of a group of animals of the same breed and same or similar age, the dosing should be done according to the heaviest animal of this group.

To obtain maximum benefit, animals should be treated before the expected onset of clinical signs, i.e. in the prepatent period.

Lambs: Each animal should be treated with a single oral dose of 0.4 ml per kg body weight. To obtain maximum benefit, animals should be treated before the expected onset of clinical signs, i.e. in the prepatent period.

If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their body weight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under- or over-dosing.

Withdrawal Period

Piglets, meat and offal: 77 days

Calves, meat and offal: 63 days

Not permitted for use in lactating animals producing milk for human consumption.

Lambs,meat and offal: 42 days

Not permitted for use in lactating sheep producing milk for human consumption.

Contra Indications

Do not use in calves weighing more than 80 kg bodyweight or in fattening units such as veal or beef calves.

As with any antiparasiticide frequent and repeated use of antiprotozoals from the same class may lead to the development of resistance. It is recommended to treat all animals in a pen.

Hygienic measures may reduce the risk of coccidiosis. It is therefore, recommended to improve concomitantly the hygienic conditions in the concerned facility, particularly dryness and cleanliness.

To obtain maximum benefit, animals should be treated before the expected onset of clinical signs, i.e. in the prepatent period.

To alter the course of an established clinical coccidial infection, in individual animals already showing signs of diarrhoea, additional supportive therapy may be required.

A threefold overdose is well tolerated by healthy piglets and calves without signs of intolerance.

No signs of overdose have been observed in lamb safety studies with threefold overdose at a single treatment and twofold overdose treatment on 2 consecutive days.

Once opened use within 3 months.

User Safety - wash any splashes from skin or eyes immediately with water.

Environmental Safety

The major metabolite of toltrazuril, toltrazuril sulfone (ponazuril), has been shown to be both persistent (half-life >1 year) and mobile in soil and to be toxic to plants.

For environmental reasons:

In order to prevent any adverse effects on plants and possible contamination of groundwater manure from treated calves must not be spread onto land without dilution with manure from untreated cows. Manure from treated calves must be diluted with at least 3 times the weight of manure from mature cows before it can be spread onto land.

Lambs kept throughout the whole life span indoors under an intensive rearing system must not be treated beyond the age of 6 weeks or body weight of more than 20 kg at treatment. Manure from these animals should only be applied to the same piece of land every third year.
