Tribex 10% is indicated for the treatment of acute, subacute and chronic fascioliasis in cattle caused by early immature, immature and adult stages of liver fluke (fasciola hepatica) susceptible to triclabendazole. Pink coloured uniform suspension which resuspends easily on shaking. Each ml contains 100mg triclabendazole.
Recommended dose rate
12 mg triclabendazole per kg bodyweight as a single administration. (Approx 6ml per 50kg bodyweight).
Routine treatment (Areas of heavy fluke infection)
As a guide, dose all cattle exposed to fluke infected pastures preventatively at regular intervals of 10 weeks from March/April through to October/November. In situations where stock are outwintered another dose in January may be required. All animals grazing the pasture should be treated at these times. All bought in animals should be dosed before joining the main flock. Veterinary advice should be sought with regard to specific preventative dosing regimes.
Routine treatment (Areas of moderate fluke infection)
Dose all cattle on fluke infected pastures at intervals of 10 weeks throughout the fluke season, usually September to January/February. An additional preventative treatment in Spring will assist in reducing the amount of new infection on the pastures in the following Autumn. All bought in animals should be dosed before joining the main herd.
Where cattle are inwintered, a single dose of Tribex 10% should be given 2 weeks after housing.
Treatment of sub-acute and acute outbreaks
Affected cattle should be treated immediately after diagnosis and veterinary advice should be sought for subsequent dosing intervals. If a preventative fluke dosing programme is employed the occurrence of acute fluke is greatly reduced. Retreatment may not be carried out within 8 weeks.
Tribex 10% can be safely given to pregnant cattle. Do not administer to cattle producing milk for human consumption.
Meat and offal: 56 days
Not permitted for use in lactating animals producing milk for human consumption. Dairy cows producing milk for human consumption should be treated at the start of the dry period only.
