Directions

  • Administer orally to both horses and donkeys at the recommended dose level of 0.2 mg ivermectin per kilogram of bodyweight. Bodyweight and dosage should be accurately determined prior to treatment.
  • Calibrated markings are provided at 100kg bodyweight intervals. The syringe should be adjusted to the calculated dosage by setting the ring on the appropriate place on the plunger.
  • Unlock the knurled ring by making 1/4 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 1/4 turn to lock in place. Remove the plastic cap from the tip of the nozzle. Make sure the horse's mouth contains no feed.
  • 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.

Ingredients

  • Active Ingredient: Ivermectin 18.7mg.
  • Other Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide (E171) 20mg, Hyprolose, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Propylene Glycol.

Cautions

  • Some horses carrying heavy infection 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.
  • Resistance to macrocyclic lactones (which includes ivermectin) has been reported in Parascaris equorum in horses in a number of countries within the EU. Therefore, the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of gastro-intestinal nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.
  • EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TO FISH AND AQUATIC LIFE. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with the product or used container. Any unused veterinary medicinal product or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal products should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to the animals:

  • Do not smoke, eat or drink while handling the product.
  • Wash hands after use.
  • This product may cause skin and eye irritation. Therefore, the user should avoid contact of the product with the skin and the eyes. In the case of contact, rinse immediately with plenty of water.
  • In the case of accidental ingestion or eye irritation after contact seek medical advice immediately and show the package insert or the label to the physician.
