PATENTED FORMULA WITH ENHANCED CLOSANTEL ABSORPTION

Genesis Xtra Drench has a patented propylene glycol based formulation that incorporates closantel at a higher than normal concentration. The closantel in Genesis Xtra Drench is also absorbed at a higher rate than other formulations even when dosed at the same rate. The high levels of Closantel absorbed into the sheep’s blood ensures good efficacy against the blood-feeding Barber’s Pole Worm and Liver Fluke.

 

PERSISTENT ACTIVITY

Genesis Xtra Drench has sustained activity against closantel susceptible Barber’s Pole Worm (including strains resistant to macrocyclic lactones). It prevents re-infection of sheep and limits pasture contamination with Barber’s Pole Worm eggs for up to 6 weeks after drenching.

 

ACTIVITY AGAINST RESISTANT STRAINS OF BARBER’S POLE WORM

The high efficacy of Genesis Xtra Drench against Barber’s Pole Worm allows it to kill strains that are resistant to macrocyclic lactones, resistant to closantel or resistant to both macrocyclic lactones and closantel. However, some decrease in persistence of activity may be seen where the strain of Barber’s Pole Worm has developed resistance to Closantel.

 

Genesis Xtra Drench can be used as a quarantine drench to prevent the introduction of resistant strains of Barber’s Pole Worm onto a property. When used as a quarantine drench, it is advisable to hold treated sheep in treatment yards for at least 24 hours before introduction to paddocks.

 

STANDARD DOSE RATE

The dose rate of 1mL/5kg bodyweight is the same low dose of traditional drenches and application is by the oral route using any standard drenching equipment. This makes drenching with Genesis Xtra Drench easy and simple. At the given dose rate, Genesis Xtra Drench delivers 0.2mg abamectin and 10mg closantel per kg bodyweight.


ANIMAL SAFETY

Ewes may be treated at any stage of pregnancy. However, DO NOT USE Genesis Xtra Drench in lambs
