1mL/50kg liveweight administered orally with the syringe enclosed in the pack.
Set the correct dose by turning the plunger lock. Remove cap from syringe nozzle and insert into the side of the horse's mouth in the gap between the front and back teeth. Advance the syringe as far as possible into the mouth on top of the tongue and immediately raise the horse's head and hold for a few seconds to ensure the full dose is swallowed.
Repeat doses should be given every 6 - 8 weeks in young and more susceptible horses. Preferably, use faecal egg counts (FEC) to determine a suitable re-treatment interval. When using good control measures to reduce reinfestation, mature horses only require treatment 3 - 4 times per year.
