  • This is a single dose product. Discard after use.
  • Each weight marking on the syringe plunger will deliver sufficient paste to treat 100kg 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.
