1. NAME Animec Micro 2. QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE COMPOSITION Ivermectin 100 µg per g 3. FORM Liquid Spot-On for topical application. 4. PROPERTIES Animec Micro is designed as a topical spot on for use on rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents, ferrets, small homing pigeons and caged birds up to 800 g bodyweight. The active ingredient Ivermectin is a substance known as an endectocide because it kills parasites that cause infestation inside the body (endoparasites) as well as those living outside the body, on the skin (ectoparasites). Ivermectin is used in many species for the control of mites, roundworms and lice. Animec Micro is a simple and effective spot-on solution for prevention and treatment of common internal and external parasites on small mammals and birds. Applied to the skin, Animec Micro is particularly effective against the parasites which commonly cause ear and skin problems in rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, snakes, lizards and small rodents. It is also effective against many of the parasites which cause skin and feather problems in birds. 5.
