Drench

The following Zoetis drenches are available in New Zealand for sheep. Click on the links below for more information:

Startect®

Startect

INDICATIONS

For the treatment and control of a broad range of susceptible adult and immature (L4) gastrointestinal nematodes of sheep, including those resistant to macrocyclic lactones (ML), levamisole/morantel (clear), benzimidazoles (white) and closantel based drenches, and combinations of these. For the treatment and control of lungworm, nasal bot and itch mite. Contains: 10 mg/mL derquantel, 1 mg/mL abamectin.

FEATURES

  • Derquantel is the first member of the novel family of anthelmintics, the Spiroindoles (SIs), and has a completely unique mode of action compared to all other anthelmintics.
  • Formulating derquantel in a combination has the potential to extend the life of this new active by slowing the development of resistance.
  • When used as part of a routine drench programme, Startect also extends the useful life of older drenches by cleaning up resistant worms that have survived previous drenches.
  • Well tolerated at up to 3x the dose rate.
  • Safe to use in lambs, ewes and rams.
  • Use from six weeks of age or heavier than 15kg.

  • Injection formula is easy to administer and delivers equivalent production benefits to capsules.1
