Product Details

Rearguard 6% w/v Cutaneous Solution effectively prevents blowfly strike (Lucilia sericata) in domestic rabbits by preventing eggs laid by flies developing into adult maggots.

With lasting protection for up to 10 weeks, it can be applied directly to the fur.

HOW TO ADMINISTER AND DOSING
Rearguard 6% w/v Cutaneous Solution

Rearguard is indicated for the prevention of blowfly strike (Lucilia sericata) for up to 10 weeks after dosing, in domestic rabbits 10 weeks of age or older.

Rearguard comes supplied ready-to-use in a bottle with built-in applicator sponge. Gently depress the sponge to break the valve before applying.

Apply the product using the sponge applicator, ensuring that the rabbit’s fur is thoroughly wetted with the solution from the middle of the back to the tip of the tail. Special attention should be paid to the areas under the tail and between the back legs. Do not allow the product to run off the animal.

Rabbits should be first treated in early summer before any flies are seen. Rearguard will not kill adult maggots but works by preventing any eggs laid by flies developing.

Rabbits should be treated at 8-10 week intervals under conditions of repeated blowfly challenge. Bathing or washing the rabbit after application may result in a reduction of efficacy.

In cases of existing flystrike, adult maggots should be removed by mechanical means and appropriate supportive treatment given. Rearguard should then be applied to the fur to prevent development of new larvae and re-strike.
