Switch Fluke 10



SWITCH FLUKE 10 is an oral drench for the treatment and control of internal parasites in cattle. It contains two broad spectrum anthelmintics: 2 g/L abamectin, a member of the macrocyclic lactone family of chemicals and 80 g/L levamisoleHCl, a member of the imidazothiazole family of chemicals. Also contains 120 g/L triclabendazole, a narrow spectrum flukicide member of the benzimidazole family of chemicals.
SWITCH FLUKE 10 is effective against internal parasites sensitive to these families including lungworm and liver fluke.
SWITCH FLUKE 10 is indicated for the effective treatment and control of the following
sensitive species of worms (*includes inhibited fourth stage larvae):

Anthelmintic resistant strains: SWITCH FLUKE 10 is effective against gastrointestinal worms susceptible to abamectin and/or levamisole including those that are resistant to avermectin/milbemycin, benzimidazole or levamisole/morantel anthelmintic action families or a combination of avermectin/milbemycin with benzimidazole or benzimidazole and levamisole/morantel families.
Resistance may develop to any anthelmintic. Ask your local veterinary practitioner or animal health adviser for recommended parasite management practices for your area to reduce development of resistance. It is advisable that a resistance test be conducted regularly when using any parasite treatment.
