Efficacy has not been established in sheep weighing less than 10 kg. 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; Under-dosing, which may be due to underestimation of body weight, misadministration of the veterinary medicinal product, or lack of calibration of the dosage device. To help delay the development of resistance, users are advised to check the success of the treatment (eg clinical appearance, faecal egg counts). Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests. Where the results of the tests strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.
