Fasinex 240 Product Information

Target activity of Fasinex 240

Fasinex 240 treats and controls liver fluke infections in cattle caused by all stages of triclabendazole susceptible Fasciola hepatica, from 2 week old immature to adult fluke.

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 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 trematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics. 

Special precautions for use in animals

None known.
