Weanlings Coughing

    Notice some my weanlings coughing over the last week or so.

    They were injected with Ivomec Classic about 6 weeks ago.

    Should I go with the Ivomec again or would something else me better ?

    They still on cows but plan to wean over Xmas

    I find an oral drench is good for weanlings. Something with the ingredient Fenbenazole works very well for me.

    I’d give them Curazole down the throat and don’t wean them for a week or so after if you can.

    I think the persistence of ivomec for lungworm is 4 weeks. If they've been housed for longer than two weeks then it's not lungworm. So no point dosing again. A viral infection is more likely. Talk to your vet.
