£93.64(exc VAT)£112.37(inc VAT)

A pale yellow solution for oral administration containing 0.5 mg/ml halofuginone lactate in aqueous excipients (Benzoic acid (E 210) and Tartrazine (E 102)) for new born calves:

- Prevention of diarrhoea due to diagnosed Cryptosporidium parvum, in farms with history of cryptosporidiosis. Administration should start in the first 24 to 48 hours of age.

- Reduction of diarrhoea due to diagnosed Cryptosporidium parvum. Administration should start within 24 hours after the onset of diarrhoea.

In both cases, the reduction of oocysts excretion has been demonstrated.

Legal Category: POM-V

Dosage

For oral use in calves after feeding.

- Calves 35 kg up to 45 kg: 8 ml of Halocur once a day during 7 consecutive days.

- Calves 45 kg up to 60 kg: 12 ml of Halocur once a day during 7 consecutive days.

For smaller or higher weights, a precise calculation should be performed (2 ml/10 kg).

To ensure a correct dosage, the use of either a syringe or any appropriate device for oral administration is necessary.

Consecutive treatment should be done at the same time each day.

Once a first calf has been treated, all the forthcoming new-born calves must be systematically treated as long as the risk for diarrhoea due to C. parvum persists.

Withdrawal Period

Meat and offal 13 days.

Contra Indications

Do not use on an empty stomach. Do not use in cases of diarrhoea, which have been established for more than 24 hours and in weak animals. For treatment of anorexic calves, the product should be administered in half a litre of an electrolyte solution by stomach tube.

Animals should receive adequate colostrum according to good breeding practice.
