    Levatas Dimond here.
    Animal super is Ivomectin so no use for rumen fluke

    The super part is Clorsulon but only good against adult liver fluke.

    Zanil and Levafas Diamond are the only 2 options for rumen fluke.

    Rang vet there, no zanil but has rumenil. Does it cover? I has a link before that had most of products available in Ireland and said what the covered and didn't cover. Even printer it out can't lay me hands on it.

    It has the oxyclozanide so think that's the ingredient in zanil

    That's it, it's even in the name. Rumenil is a portmanteau of rumen and zanil.

    There is an AHI.ie pdf leaflet on rumen fluke online. I can't post a link as the laptop is on the blink. Their advice seems to be treat individual animals with liquid faeces only, not blanket coverage of the herd.
    We treat these animals with 105 ml zanil ( max dose) and follow 10 to 14 days later follow up with another 105 ml zanil.

    Used to do them At housing and maybe if ebought were veet loose.some of our place is very wet, black even. Tried drainage to see of can dry up a bit.
    Beep said it was present now, rang and they said samples are pooled. Not sure why we have to give individual samples them.
    Anyways.

    Would they want 2 doses i thought the zanil kills all stages?

    I think the leaflet said zanil only killed adult rumen fluke, the follow up catch the immatures

    Pretty expensive for just testing one pooled sample. Like every other scheme they see an opening for sogging it on.
