Directions for Use:
Dosage and Administration: Given orally at the recommended dose rate of 1ml/100kg bodyweight the 6ml syringe is capable of treating horses of weight up to 600kg. Screw the plastic adjuster to the weight of the horse, insert the syringe into the side of the horse's mouth between the front and back teeth and deposit the paste toward the back of the tongue by depressing the plunger quickly as far as it will go. Immediately raise the horse's head for a few seconds to ensure that the full dose has been swallowed.
Develop a Regular Treatment Program: All horses should be subject to regular worming to maintain good health and peak condition. Particular attention should be given to young horses and mares. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age and this treatment repeated regularly as required.

It is highly effective in the treatment and control of most types of equine helminths including tapeworms, gastrointestinal, cutaneous and pulmonary nematodes and bots of horses of any age. With a regular treatment program the chances of verminous arteritis and colic caused by S. vulgaris will be reduced. Consult a veterinarian when developing a worm control program to suit your needs.
