DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Withholding water from pigs prior to treatment is not necessary for optimum anthelmintic efficacy and is not recommended during hot weather. Add 10 ml (2 teaspoonfuls) of the solution from this bottle to 1 gallon of water; mix thoroughly. Allow one gallon of medicated water for each 100 pounds body weight of pigs to be treated. No other source of water should be offered. As soon as pigs have consumed all the medicated water, resume use of regular water.
OTHER WARNINGS: Parasite resistance may develop to any dewormer. All dewormers require accurate dosing for best results. Following the use of any dewormer, effectiveness of treatment should be monitored. A decrease of effectiveness over time may indicate the development of resistance to the dewormer administered. The parasite management plan should be adjusted accordingly based on regular monitoring.
NOTE: Careful estimates of pig weights are essential for proper performance of this product.
Pigs maintained under conditions of constant worm exposure may require retreatment within 4-5 weeks after the first treatment due to reinfection.
Consult your veterinarian before administering LevaMed™ to sick swine. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.
Salivation or muzzle foam may be observed. This reaction is occasionally seen and will disappear in a short time after medication.
If pigs are infected with mature lungworms, coughing and vomiting may be observed soon after medicated water is consumed. This reaction is due to the expulsion of worms from the lungs and will be over in several hours. Follow recommended dosage carefully to assure removal of worms and avoid an overdose of LevaMed™ solution.
