ZOLVIX PLUS BROAD SPECTRUM ORAL SHEEP DRENCH
Active Ingredients: Abamectin 2 2g/L & AHC-2102225 (Monepantel) @ 25g/L
Zolvix™ Plus 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 is an exciting new 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 appropriate combination is widely recognized as being 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 macrocyclin 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 is ideal for use at any time when worm egg monitoring indicates treatment with an effective short-acting drench is required*. Zolvix™ Plus is ideal for use in 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 development of drench resistance because each drench group has an independent mode of action and there is little evidence for cross-resistance between groups.

Directions For Use
Zolvix Plus is a ready to use solution. Drench sheep orally at a dose rate of 1 mL/10 kg body weight (equivalent to 2.5 mg monepantel/kg body weight and 0.2 mg abamectin/ kg body weight). Use remaining product within 12 months of opening the container.
Contraindication: This product is contraindicated for use in lambs under six weeks of age or less than 10 kg body weight.
A representative sample of animals should be weighed before treatment. Dose to the heaviest sheep by liveweight in each group. Where there is a large variation in size within the group, drafting into two or more lines may be appropriate to avoid excessive overdosing. DO NOT underdose.
Restraints: DO NOT USE in sheep less than 10 kg body weight. DO NOT USE in ewes which are producing or may in the future produce milk that may be used or processed for human consumption. This product is contraindicated for use in lambs under 6 weeks of age or less than 10 kg body weight.
Re-treatment Interval: DO NOT re-treat animals for 42 days after last treatment.
Withholding Periods (WHP):
MEAT: DO NOT USE less than 14 days before slaughter for human consumption.
MILK: DO NOT USE in ewes which are producing or may in the future produce milk that may be used or processed for human consumption.
EXPORT SLAUGHTER INTERVAL (ESI):
DO NOT USE less than 84 days before slaughter for export
