Halocur 0.5 mg/ml oral solution for cattle 490 ml

Prevention and/or reduction of diarrhoea due to diagnosed Cryptosporidium parvum in calves

Prescription required* (Exceptions apply)

Halocur contains the active substance halofuginone lactate, which is used against parasitic diseases caused by protozoa.

Halocur is presented as a clear, yellow solution for administration by mouth.

Active substance Halocur:

Halofuginone base 0.50 mg/ml (as lactate salt)

Excipients:

Benzoic acid (E 210) 1.00 mg/ml

Tartrazine (E102) 0.03 mg/ml

Administer Halocur after colostrum feeding, or after milk or milk replacer feeding only, using either a syringe or any appropriate device for oral administration. Do not use on an empty stomach.

For treatment of anorexic calves, the product should be administered in half a litre of an electrolyte solution.

The animals should receive enough colostrum according to good breeding practice.

For oral use in calves after feeding.

The dosage is:

100 μg of halofuginone base / kg bw / once a day for 7 consecutive days, i.e. 2 ml of Halocur /10 kg bw / once a day for 7 consecutive days.

However, in order to make the Halocur treatment easier, a simplified dosage scheme is proposed:

  • 35 kg < calves ≤ 45 kg: 8 ml of HALOCUR once a day during 7 consecutive days.

  • 45 kg < calves < 60 kg: 12 ml of HALOCUR once a day during 7 consecutive days.

For smaller or higher weights, a precise calculation should be performed (2 ml/10 kg). To ensure a correct dosage, the use of either a syringe or any appropriate device for oral administration is necessary.

The consecutive treatment should be done at the same time each day.

Once the first calf has been treated, all the forthcoming new-born calves must be systematically treated as long as the risk for diarrhoea due to C. parvum persists.
