Coughing may be observed in some animals during and for several minutes following drenching.
Do not underdose. Ensure each animal receives a complete dose based on a current body weight. Underdosing may result in ineffective treatment, and encourage the development of parasite resistance.
RESIDUE WARNING: Do not treat sheep within 11 days of slaughter.
The Safety Data Sheet (SDS) contains more detailed occupational safety information. To report adverse effects in users, to obtain an SDS, or for assistance call 1-800-650-4899.
PRECAUTIONS: Privermectin® (ivermectin) Drench for Sheep has been formulated for use in sheep only. This product should not be used in other animal species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result.
OTHER WARNINGS: Parasite resistance may develop to any dewormer, and has been reported for most classes of dewormers.
Treatment with a dewormer used in conjunction with parasite management practices appropriate to the geographic area and the animal(s) to be treated may slow the development of parasite resistance.
Fecal examinations or other diagnostic tests and parasite management history should be used to determine if the product is appropriate for the herd/flock, prior to the use of any dewormer. Following the use of any dewormer, effectiveness of treatment should be monitored (for example, with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test or another appropriate method).
A decrease in a drug’s effectiveness over time as calculated by fecal egg count reduction tests may indicate the development of resistance to the dewormer administered. Your parasite management plan should be adjusted accordingly based on regular monitoring.
Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children.
Refrain from smoking and eating when handling. Avoid contact with eyes. Immediately wash hands and any spills on the skin with plenty of soap and water following use.
Restricted Drug (California) - Use Only as Directed.
Environmental Safety: Studies indicate that when ivermectin comes in contact with the soil, it readily and tightly binds to the soil and becomes inactive over time. Free ivermectin may adversely affect fish and certain water-borne organisms on which they feed. Do not permit water runoff from feedlots to enter lakes, streams, or ground water. Do not contaminate water by direct application or by the improper disposal of drug containers. Spills should be contained and soaked up with absorbent towels or into loose soil. Gloves should be worn to prevent skin exposure. All the collected materials (contaminated towels and soil), as well as all empty drug containers should be placed in an impervious film (plastic) bag and disposed of by incineration or in an approved landfill.
STORAGE INFORMATION: Store at 68° - 77° F (20° - 25° C). Excursions between 59° - 86° F (15° - 30° C) are permitted.

GENERAL INFORMATION: This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy horses, cattle, sheep, goats, and swine against tetanus. This product was licensed prior to the requirement to establish a minimum age for use. The duration of immunity is unknown. For more information regarding efficacy and safety data, see productdata.aphis.usda.gov.
Safety in pregnant animals is unknown.
Tetanus Toxoid is prepared by detoxifying tetanus toxin in such a manner as to allow the antigenic properties to remain intact. Product is purified, concentrated and adjuvanted to provide a low dose effective immunizing agent.
Each serial is tested for purity, safety, and potency in accordance with USDA requirements.
Tetanus is caused by a neurotoxin produced by growth of Clostridium tetani, an anaerobic (lives without air) micro-organism, in necrotic tissue. Affected animals become stiff, have difficulty swallowing, and have an increased pulse rate. Breathing is labored. Spasmodic contractions of the muscular system occur, such as contracting muscles of the jaw.
Spasmodic contractions of the muscular system occur, such as contracting muscles of the jaw. Thus, the term “lockjaw” is often used. Legs and tail are often stiff with abdominal muscles contracted. Tetanus stricken animals may be unusually sensitive to light and heat. Temperature of the animal generally remains normal, elevating only shortly before death.
Protective antibody levels usually occur about two weeks after the second injection of the primary immunization series. In contrast, administration of Tetanus Antitoxin is recommended for immediate, emergency, passive treatment of exposed animals with unknown vaccination history or with signs of tetanus infection.
DIRECTIONS: Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. Store at 2-8° C. Do not freeze. Do not mix with other products. Shake well before use. Use entire contents when first opened.
PRECAUTIONS: A transitory local reaction may occur at injection site. Anaphylactoid reaction may occur following administration of products of this nature. If noted, administer adrenalin or equivalent. In case of human exposure, consult a physician.
DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION: For primary immunization, two doses should be administered subcutaneously or intramuscularly approximately 30 days apart. Use intramuscularly for horses as local reactions are more likely to occur if injected subcutaneously.
Horses: 1 ml IM
Cattle: 1 ml SC or IM
Sheep, Goats, Swine: 0.5 ml SC or IM
Historically, annual single dose revaccination has been recommended. Contact veterinarian for advice.
