Title: What lice treatment can you use 2 wks. before terminal show??
Post by: SlickTxMaine on February 17, 2010, 10:33:49 AM
My son's steer appears to have lice.  He has a couple of spots where he has rubbed off his hair.  The show is in two weeks, terminal show.  Normally I would use Ivomec, but, not sure if that is safe to use this close to slaughter.  Any suggestions??

Durasect and Cydectin by Pfizer have 0 withdrawl.  Have a vet administer it then get a health paper stating he administered on such date, such product, with 0 withdrawl, and animal should be free of .........  In case you need to show the sifter some back up.
