Dosage and administration

Administer orally as a single dose rate to horses at the recommended dose level of 0.2 mg ivermectin per kilogram of bodyweight. Each syringe delivers 120 mg ivermectin, sufficient to treat 600 kg of bodyweight.

Single administration. Bodyweight and dosage should be accurately determined prior to treatment.

Dosing Instructions

Each weight-marking on the syringe plunger will deliver sufficient paste to treat 100 kg bodyweight. Unlock the knurled ring by making ¼ turn and slide the knurled ring up the plunger shaft so that the side nearest the barrel is at the prescribed weight marking. Turn the knurled ring ¼ turn to lock in place. Make sure the horse’s mouth contains no feed.

Remove the plastic cap from the tip of the nozzle.

Insert the syringe into the horse’s mouth at the interdental space. Advance the plunger as far as it will go, depositing the medication on the base of the tongue. Immediately raise the horse’s head for a few seconds after dosing.

The treatment schedule should be based on the local epidemiological situation.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Do not use in mares producing milk for human consumption.

Some horses carrying heavy infestation of Onchocerca microfilariae have experienced oedema and pruritus following dosing, assumed to be the result of death of large numbers of microfilariae. These signs resolve within a few days but symptomatic treatment may be advisable.

Cats, Dogs, especially Collies, Old English Sheepdogs and related breeds or crosses, and also turtles and tortoises may be adversely affected by the concentration of ivermectin in this product if they are allowed to ingest spilled paste or have access to used syringes.

As ivermectin is extremely dangerous to fish and aquatic life, treated animals should not have direct access to surface waters and ditches during treatment.

Parasite resistance to any particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent, repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class.

Studies performed in laboratory animals showed no teratogenic or embryotoxic effect of ivermectin at the recommended doses during therapy.
