Therapeutic indications:

Composition of the veterinary drug:

1 ml Vermectin zero solution for injection contains:

  • Eprinomectin 20 mg as an active substance;

Pharmacological activity:

The active substance of the veterinary drug is macrocyclic lactone eprinomectin.  Eprinomectin selectively interacts with specific receptors of muscle and nerve tissue of parasites and increases the permeability of membranes for chloride ions, which leads to disruption of the conductivity of nerve impulses, paralysis and death of parasites.

By subcutaneous administration, the bioavailability of eprinomectin is about 89%, the maximum concentration of eprinomectin is 58 mcg/l within 36–48 hours after injection. The half-life of the veterinary drug is 65-75 hours. Over 99% of eprinomectin binds to serum proteins and is excreted in unchanged form with feces.


The veterinary drug is administered for cattle by subcutaneous injection in a single dose of 1 ml /100 kg body weight (0.2 mg of eprinomectin/1 kg body weight).

VERMECTIN ZERO should be injected slowly. Before use heat the injection solution up to the body temperature of the animal.

Precautions and adverse reactions:

In case of the overdose of the veterinary drug, weakness, tremor and increased salivation may occur. There are no specific detoxification agents; general measures should be taken to remove the veterinary drug from the animal’s body.

In recommended doses, the veterinary drug doesn’t usually cause side effects and complications.

Do not use in animals, which are known to be hypersensitive to eprinomectin.

In case of occurrence of allergic reactions VERMECTIN ZERO is cancelled, antihistamines and symptomatic treatment are prescribed.

The veterinary drug is approved for use in lactating and pregnant cows.

No special aspects of interaction with other veterinary drugs are revealed.

Eprinomectin is excreted in unchanged form with feces and has a toxic effect on the aquatic ecosystem. Therefore, keep treated animals away from water reservoirs for 2-4 weeks.
