Zolvix Plus Sheep Drench
Active Ingredients: Abamectin @ 2g/L & AHC-2102225 (Monepantel) @ 25g/L
Zolvix Plus Sheep Drench provides premium broad-spectrum control of sensitive roundworms in sheep, including strains with single, double or triple resistance to white, clear, closantel, and macrocyclic lactone drenches or their combinations. Zolvix Plus prolongs the life of all effective sheep drenches.
Zolvix Plus Sheep Drench is a combination drench that combines monepantel, the only member of the amino-acetonitrile derivative (AAD or ‘orange’) class of anthelmintics, with abamectin. As short-acting, broad-spectrum drenches with different modes of action, monepantel and abamectin are ideal combination partners. Using drenches in an appropriate combination is widely recognized as beneficial in delaying the development of resistance to drench actives.
Zolvix Plus contains two active ingredients whose different modes of action and synergistic activity provide highly effective broad-spectrum control of roundworm parasites. Zolvix Plus controls worms that are resistant to macrocyclic lactones(i.e. ML or ‘mectin’ drenches, including moxidectin), benzimidazoles (i.e. white drenches), imidazothiazoles (i.e. ‘clear’ drenches, including levamisole and morantel) and salicylanilide (e.g. closantel).
Used as a knockout, exit or quarantine drench in drench programs, Zolvix Plus provides premium parasite control and helps to protect the efficacy of other effective drenches. Research has shown the incorporation of monepantel (one of the active ingredients in Zolvix Plus) into drenching programs can help to prolong the life of all effective drenches.
Zolvix Plus Sheep Drench is ideal for use when worm egg monitoring indicates treatment with an effective short-acting drench is required*. Zolvix Plus is ideal for strategic drenching programs as a summer (WA: autumn), pre-lambing, weaning or quarantine drench.
Zolvix (monepantel) as a single active has been available in Australia since late 2010. The release of the dual-active combination Zolvix Plus will provide better drench resistance management. Combination drenches slow the development of drench resistance because each drench group has an independent mode of action, and there is little evidence for cross-resistance between groups.
