Product Description

Levafas Diamond is a broad spectrum anthelmintic for use in the treatment and control of both gastro-intestinal and pulmonary nematode infections and adult liver fluke infections in cattle and sheep only.

Levafas Diamond should be used in cases of parasitic gastroenteritis and lungworm disease caused by mature and developing immature forms of those organisms sensitive to treatment with levamisole hydrochloride.

Lungworms: Dictyocaulus spp. Gastrointestinal worms: Haemonchus spp; Ostertagia spp (except inhibited Ostertagia larvae in cattle); Nematodirus spp; Trichostrongylus spp; Cooperia spp; Oesophagostomum spp; and Bunostomum spp.

Levafas Diamond also removes most mature Fasciola spp (flukes) present in the bile ducts of the liver.

Uses

Levafas Diamond is a broad spectrum anthelmintic for use in the treatment and control of both gastro-intestinal and pulmonary nematode infections and adult liver fluke infections in cattle and sheep only.

Levafas Diamond should be used in cases of parasitic gastroenteritis and lungworm disease caused by mature and developing immature forms of those organisms sensitive to treatment with levamisole hydrochloride.

Lungworms: Dictyocaulus spp. Gastrointestinal worms: Haemonchus spp; Ostertagia spp (except inhibited Ostertagia larvae in cattle); Nematodirus spp; Trichostrongylus spp; Cooperia spp; Oesophagostomum spp; and Bunostomum spp.

Levafas Diamond also removes most mature Fasciola spp (flukes) present in the bile ducts of the liver.

Dosage & Administration

Levafas Diamond should be administered as an oral drench. Dosing must be carried out accurately using a suitable gun system, at a rate of 7.5mg levamisole hydrochloride and 15mg oxyclozanide per kg bodyweight.

Withdrawal Period

Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment.

Cattle and sheep may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 5 days from the last treatment.

This product must not be used in cattle and sheep producing milk for human consumption.

Contradictions, Warnings, etc

To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.

Levafas Diamond may be administered to pregnant or lactating animals. However, care should be taken when treating heavily pregnant animals, and animals under stress from adverse weather conditions, poor nutrition, penning, handling etc. The effects of Levamisole overdosage include impaired motor function i.e., muscle tremors, head shaking and increased salivation. These effects are transient and more likely to be found in cattle than in sheep.

At normal oxyclozanide dose levels, animals may show slight softening of the faeces with the occasional animal showing increased frequency of defecation and transient inappetence.

Oxyclozanide overdosage may produce inappetence and loss of bodyweight, dullness and some loosening of faeces in sheep, and possibly diarrhoea. These effects are occasionally enhanced in animals with severe liver damage and/or dehydration at the time of dosing.

Animals must not be treated within a period of 14 days before or after treatment with organophosphorus compounds.

Veterinary advice should be sought on appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve adequate parasite control and to reduce the likelihood of anthelmintic resistance developing. Veterinary advice should be sought if the product does not achieve the desired clinical effect since other diseases, nutritional disturbances or anthelmintic resistance might be involved.

Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:

Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.
Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of body weight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device.

Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.

Resistance to levamisole has been reported in Teladorsagia, Cooperia and Trichostrongylus species in sheep in a number of countries, including the EU. There are reports of resistance in Haemonchus in sheep outside the EU. Resistance to levamisole has been reported in Teladorsagia species in cattle in developed countries such as New Zealand. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.

Operator Warnings:
Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash splashes from skin and eyes immediately. If irritation persists seek medical advice. Remove any contaminated clothing immediately. Wash hands and exposed skin after handling this product and before meals.

Levamisole can cause idiosyncratic reactions and serious blood disorders in a very small number of people. If symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, vomiting or abdominal discomfort are experienced when using this product, or sore mouth/throat or fever occur shortly afterwards, then medical advice should be sought immediately.

Pharmaceutical Precautions

Do not store above 25ºC. Protect from light.
Keep the container in outer carton.
Dispose of any unused product and empty containers in accordance with guidance from your local waste regulation authority.

Further Information

In cases of lungworm infections, coughing may persist for a considerable time following successful treatment with Levafas Diamond. This is due to tissue damage caused by the parasites.After treatment, animals should be moved to clean pasture to prevent re-infection. Levamisole activity is not affected by benzimidazole resistance.
