Agri-Mectin Food Interactions

Medicines can interact with certain foods. In some cases, this may be harmful and your doctor may advise you to avoid certain foods. In the case of ivermectin lotion and tablets, there are no specific foods that you must exclude from your diet.


The dose rate is 1 mL for each 22 lb of body weight. The formulation should be applied along the topline in a narrow strip extending from the withers to the tailhead.


Store away from excessive heat (104°F/40°C) and protect from light.

Use only in well-ventilated areas or outdoors.

Close container tightly when not in use.

Cattle should not be treated when hair or hide is wet since reduced efficacy may be experienced.

Do not use when rain is expected to wet cattle within six hours after treatment.

This product is for application to skin surface only. Do not give orally or parenterally.

Cloudiness in the formulation may occur when Agri-Mectin® (ivermectin) Pour-On is stored at temperatures below 32° F. Allowing it to warm at room temperature will restore the normal appearance without affecting efficacy.

Antiparasitic activity of ivermectin will be impaired if the formulation is applied to areas of the skin with mange scabs or lesions, or with dermatoses or adherent materials, e.g. caked mud or manure.

Ivermectin has been associated with adverse reactions in sensitive dogs; therefore, Agri-Mectin® Pour-On is not recommended for use in species other than cattle.

When to Treat Cattle with Grubs

Agri-Mectin® Pour-On effectively controls all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For the most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble fly) season. While this is not peculiar to ivermectin, destruction of Hypoderma larvae (cattle grubs) at the period when these grubs are in vital areas may cause undesirable host-parasite reactions. Killing Hypoderma lineatum when it is in the esophageal tissues may cause bloat: killing H. bovis when it is in the vertebral canal may cause staggering or paralysis. Cattle should be treated either before or after these stages of grub development.

Cattle treated with Agri-Mectin® Pour-On at the end of the fly season may be re-treated with Agri-Mectin® during the winter without danger of grub-related reactions. For further information and advice on a planned parasite control program, consult your veterinarian.
