Fasimec Duo Product information

Target activity of Fasimec Duo

Fasimec Duo targets infections due to gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, liver fluke and nasal bots.

Gastrointestinal roundworms (adult and immature)

Haemonchus contortus, Teladorsagia (Ostertagia) circumcincta, Trichostrongylus spp, Cooperia spp, Nematodirus spp including N.battus, Strongyloides papillosus, Oesophagostomum spp and adult Chabertia ovina.

Inhibited larval stages and benzimidazole resistant strains of Haemonchus contortus and Teladorsagia (Ostertagia) circumcincta are also controlled.

Liver fluke (mature, immature and early immature stages down to less than 1 week old): Fasciola hepatica

Lungworms (adult and immature): Dictyocaulus filaria

Nasal bots (all stages): Oestrus ovis

Special precautions for use in animals

Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:

  • Too frequent and repeated use 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 investigation using appropriate tests (eg Faecal Egg Count reduction test). Where the results of the test(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 ivermectin has been reported in Teladorsagia (Ostertagia) circumcincta in sheep and increasing resistance to triclabendazole has been reported in Fasciola species in small ruminants in a number of countries including the EU. Therefore the use of this product should be used upon local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of the Teladorsagia (Ostertagia) circumcincta and trematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.

Extra-label use in dogs should be avoided as severe adverse reactions may occur. In common with other avermectins, certain breeds of dogs such as Collies are especially sensitive to ivermectin and particular care should be taken to avoid accidental consumption of the product.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering Fasimec Duo to sheep

People with known hypersensitivity to the active substances should avoid contact with the product. Protective gloves should be worn when handling the product.

In case of accidental spillage onto skin or into the eyes wash immediately with water. Take off any contaminated clothes.

Do not eat, drink or smoke whilst handling the product. Wash hands and exposed skin before meals and after work.

Other precautions

Ivermectin is very toxic to aquatic organisms and dung insects.
