Tremacide 120 Flukicide for Cattle and Sheep
Composition - Triclabendazole 120 g/L.
Description - Oral drench; free flowing aqueous suspension.
Triclabendazole is a member of the benzimidazole family of drenches. Tremacide 120 is palatable, and may be administered to young, pregnant, weak or debilitated animals. When used at the recommended rate it combines high efficacy against all stages of susceptible fluke with a high safety margin. At the recommended dose rate Tremacide 120 would have an efficacy of 98 to 100% against 6 to 8 week old flukes in the liver tissue and adults in the bile ducts, and has a safety margin of up to 16 in sheep. Triclabendazole is expected to reach peak serum levels in 12 to 36 hours and persist for up to 7 days after administration by binding to serum albumin. Approximately 50% of the drug is excreted through the bile.
