General Information on Bimectin
Bimectin is a veterinary medicine used for treating infestation and infections caused due to grubs, lungworms, gastrointestinal roundworms, mange mites and sucking lice in dairy cattle, beef cattle, veal, and swine.
Its generic name is Ivermectin, and it belongs to the class of drugs known as anti-parasitic agents. In swine and cattle, Bimectin kills ectoparasites and parasitic nematodes such as lice and mites. In the case of roundworm infections, it stimulates the release of neurotransmitters from the nerve endings, enhances their binding to special receptors of nerve junctions, and interrupts their nerve impulses. In this way, the roundworms are paralyzed and killed.
Bimectin is available in the form of an injection given to the animal subcutaneously. Since tapeworms and flukes do not have neurotransmitters or nerve impulse transmitters, Ivermectin is ineffective against these parasites. The drug only works by affecting the neurotransmitters of parasites.
Side effects of Bimectin
Transitory discomfort is observed in some animals after receiving a Bimectin shot. Soft tissue swelling is also noticed at the site of the injection in some animals. These are temporary side effects of the drug and subside without any medical help. However, you should inform the veterinarian if any of these symptoms worsen or persist. In order to reduce chances of site reactions and discomfort, you should divide the dose between different injection sites if it is more than 10ml.
Bimectin is meant to be given only subcutaneously, and should not be given intravenously or intramuscularly. Severe side effects may be triggered if you do so otherwise.
Dosage of Bimectin
One ml of Bimectin contains 10mg of Ivermectin. The recommended dosage is 200µg Ivermectin per kg of the cattle’s weight. This means that Bimectin 1ml is recommended to an animal weighing 50kg. If you are giving the injection to a swine, you need to administer Bimectin 1ml per 33kg of its weight. A swine needs 330µg Ivermectin per kg of its weight.
As Bimectin injection is given subcutaneously, you will need to use a 15 to 20mm needle and a 16 gauge. Use The shot is to be given under the animal’s loose skin, either behind or in front of its shoulder.
Young pigs weighing less than 16kg will need less than 0.5ml Bimectin. In that case, you will need to use a syringe which can accurately measure the amount of the drug. Use aseptic techniques for such purposes.
Bimectin injection can control the infestation from the larvae stage to the adult life cycle. However, since the medicine does not start acting immediately, you should not expose the infected animal to contaminated facilities or other untreated animals so as to order to prevent re-infestation. Also, do not move the animals to clean quarters or near uninfected pigs at least for one week of treatment.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
