The same liver fluke affects cattle and sheep. FASINEX ® 100 treats both species, killing all 3 stages of liver fluke – and with just a 35 day meat withhold for sheep.
Same problem, one solution...
- Treating sheep and cattle simultaneously reduces cross-contamination of pasture.
- Convenient and cost-effective.
- Quick and easy to administer using the OPTILINE sheep drencher. Balanced, lightweight, user friendly design
...from the world’s No.1*fluke drench
- Triclabendazole, as in FASINEX 100, is the only active ingredient to kill all 3 stages of fluke.
- Many sheep flukicides and cattle flukicides only target the later stages.
- FASINEX 100’s earlier fluke kill ensures less liver damage, better sheep growth and improved cattle growth
- Meat withhold in sheep reduced to 35 days for more flexibility when marketing lambs.
Even easier sheep dosing
- Easy administration with the revolutionary OPTILINE™ sheep drencher
- New concentrated double strength sheep formula
- Reduced cost, low volume dose for sheep
Administration in sheep
Before dosing weigh your stock, split them into groups of similar weights, and dose to the heaviest in that group.
Connect the OPTILINE drencher to your bottle of FASINEX 100 and load into your Novartis backpack.
Calibrate your OPTILINE drencher to give the correct volume of FASINEX 100 for the weight of animal. Check dose accuracy at regular intervals.
- Hold the OPTILINE drencher with a relaxed wrist.
- Drench from behind with animals facing the same direction as you.
- Raise animal’s jaw with your spare hand, until parallel to the ground.
- Drench is dispensed over the back of the tongue into the rumen. The OPTILINE nozzle and mouth-guard are designed to facilitate delivery of the dose in the correct manner.
Administration in cattle
- Dosing cattle with Fasinex 100 is quick and easy, with minimal handling.
- No need to put your hand into the crush which can be dangerous.
- Easy to administer with a cattle hook-dosing gun.
- Use with the unique Novartis backpack and rucksack.
- Not for use in dairy cattle producing milk for human consumption. Use in dry cows at the start of the drying off period.
- When using in cattle observe a 56 day meat withhold period.

- More accurate dosing, less wastage
- Large mouth guard prevents nozzle being inserted too deeply or rumen bypass
- Nozzle rotates for left or right handed operators
- Dose dial is simple to set, locking automatically
- Adult and lamb nozzle
- Also for use with Zolvix
- Fasinex, Fasimec Duo S and Combinex Sheep kill all three stages of liver fluke; early, immature and adult – down to 2 days of age
- Many other flukicides don`t kill early immature and immature fluke
- Some flukicides only stunt, so egg laying and further liver damage will occur.
- Unlike some flukicides, Fasinex 240 kills fluke down to just 2 weeks old in cattle. This means earlier fluke kill, less liver damage, less blood loss and better growth
- Fasinex 240 achieves the same fluke kill with fewer doses than clorsulon, oxyclosanide, nitroxynil or albendazole. This could save you time, money, improve productivity and reduce cattle handling.
Killing all three stages of fluke delivers 3Kg higher weight gain than treating for adult fluke only (REF TCBZ performance 020)
What does 3 Kg mean?
3kg at £2.70 (REF Sheep Market Outlook April 2011 lamb liveweight price) = £8.10 per animal treated Or £2,025 in a flock of 250 lambs
and cattle growth (link to Weight gain chart: page, 11 Guide to Fluke).
Weight gain over a 20 week period in cattle treated with triclabendazole was 6Kg greater than in cattle in which only adult and immature fluke were killed.
What does 6Kg mean?
6Kg at £1.65 (REF cattle Market Outlook April 2011 cattle liverweight price) = £9.90 per animal treated Or £2,475 in a herd of 250 cattle
