Ram lambs cocci med & fluke med - advice please
« on: November 05, 2013, 02:24:01 pm »
Have recently treated a 2013 lamb for cocci, but it's the time to give all of the flock their med for fluke too, was wondering how long to leave it between those two meds for this chap?
He was last wormed a couple of weeks ago, according to the wormer product literature it also treats adult fluke.
The Fluke med I'm now about to use is for all stages; Fasinex 5% sheep.
Don't want to o.d. this poor fella on meds.
Advice please.

I hope that the ram lamb has dried up now drinking less and eating more , the wormer you used which  was  i assume  a white wormer  will only kill adult fluke if used at the  double dose rate , the pack will give two dose rates one for worms , one for fluke .    No problem giving the the lamb  fasinex  now if you need to treat for fluke.

If it's a routine thing, and you did give a fluke dose a couple of weeks ago, then you could leave it maybe 6 weeks in all before giving another fluke dose.  But as shep53 says, check the dosage info on the wormer, some are only effective against fluke at a much higher dose rate.

If you have concerns this fella may have fluke then I'd dose sooner rather than later - as it's a couple of weeks since his last meds, you could dose now with a different med.

Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing
