    Usage Information

    DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
    This syringe contains sufficient paste to treat one 1250 lb horse at the recommended dose rate of 91 mcg Vetrimec™ per lb (200 mcg/kg) body weight. Each weight marking on the syringe plunger delivers enough paste to treat 25 lb body weight.

    1. While holding plunger, turn the knurled ring on the plunger 1/4 turn to the left and slide it so the side nearest the barrel is at the prescribed weight marking.
    2. Lock the ring in place by making a 1/4 turn to the right.
    3. Make sure that the horses's mouth contains no feed.
    4. Remove the cover from the tip of the syringe.
    5. Insert the syringe tip into the horse's mouth at the space between the teeth.
    6. Depress the plunger as fas as it will go, depositing paste on the back of the tongue.
    7. Immediately raise the horse's head for a few seconds after dosing.


    Parasite Control Program
    All horses should be included in a regular parasite control program with particular attention being paid to mares, foals, and yearlings. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. Consult your veterinarian for a control program to meet your specific needs. Equell Paste effectively controls gastrointestinal nematodes and bots of horses. Regular treatment will reduce the chances of verminous arteritis caused by Strongylus vulgaris.

    INFORMATION FOR HORSE OWNERS
    Swelling and itching reactions after treatment with ivermectin paste have occurred in horses carrying heavy infections of neck threadworm (Onchocerca sp. microfilariae). These reactions were most likely the result of microfilariae dying in large numbers. Symptomatic treatment may be advisable. Consult your veterinarian should any such reactions occur. Healing of summer sores involving extensive tissue changes may require other appropriate therapy in conjunction with treatment with Equell Paste. Reinfection, and measures for its prevention, should also be considered. Consult your veterinarian if the condition does not improve.
