FOR USE IN DAIRY AND BEEF
Epricare Pour-on is ideal for all cattle. It has a high safety margin with even three times the dose having no effect on breeding performance of cows and bulls. The active ingredient, Eprinomectin, is fast-acting and rapidly absorbed. Eprinomectin is partitioned away from fat, limiting its excretion into milk, unlike moxidectin which is readily found in milk.
PERSISTENT ACTIVITY
Epricare Pour-on effectively controls: Haemonchus placei and Trichostrongylus spp. for up to 21 days after treatment. It also controls Ostertagia spp., Cooperia spp., Nematodirus helvetianus, Oesophagostomum radiatum and Lungworm for up to 28 days after treatment.
OIL BASE
Unlike many other macrocyclic lactone pour-ons, Epricare Pour-on is oil based. This means that the product is non-flammable and has no strong objectionable odour. It also means that the product has excellent skin tolerance and is rainfast. Rainfall before or after treatment will not affect the efficacy of the product. It is still not recommended, however, to treat cattle when rain is expected.
EASY AND CONVENIENT TO USE
Epricare Pour-on is applied at a dose rate of 1mL/10kg bodyweight, delivering 0.5mg eprinomectin per kg bodyweight. It is applied along the back line of the animal in a strip starting between the shoulder blades. This allows easy visual confirmation that a full dose has been applied to all animals.

- MEAT: NIL
- EXPORT SLAUGHTER INTERVAL (ESI): NIL
