Why Choose Closicare Plus Selenium:
- Contains closantel
Closantel is a medium spectrum drench with activity against barber’s pole worm, liver fluke and Nasal bot.
- Control of barber’s pole worm
Barber’s pole worms are insatiable feeders, sucking blood from the lining of the stomach, causing anaemia. Sheep with heavy infections of barber’s pole worms lack stamina, have pale gums and conjunctiva, and may also have bottle-jaw or constipation. If present in large numbers, barber’s pole worms can kill sheep. Closantel can provide control of susceptible barber’s pole worm, including sustained protection against re-infection. Closicare plus Selenium protects sheep against closantel-susceptible strains of barber’s pole worm for 4 weeks (up to 99.9% efficacy at four weeks after drenching).
- Control of liver fluke
Closicare plus Selenium provides control of immature and adult liver fluke including the 6 week (immature) stage. Treating immature flukes reduces the damage that they do to the animal’s liver, which in turn reduces overall production losses.
- Contains selenium
Selenium deficiency is common in the higher rainfall areas in which barber’s pole worm and liver fluke are prevalent. Selenium deficiencies can increase the effect a worm burden can have on animals through suppressing their immune systems. Other problems associated with selenium deficiency are ill thrift, infertility, reduced production (milk, wool and meat), scouring and ‘white muscle’ disease
Closicare is effective against sensitive strains of the following internal parasites of sheep.
- Barber’s pole worm (adult and immature) – Haemonchus contortus
- Liver fluke (adult and immature, including six week old stages) – Fasciola hepatica
- Nasal bot (all parasitic stages) – Oestrus ovis
Closicare plus Selenium should not be used when selenium intake from pasture is high or selenium is provided by other means (such as pasture top dressing, vaccine, pellets or selenium drenches) or if blood selenium levels at treatment are high.
