PrecautionsDo not administer the full syringe to horses under 400 kg. Use with caution in foals and smaller breeds by carefully calibrating the dose and avoid overdosing. Accurately determine the weight of the horse to be treated (if a scale is not available, use a weigh tape) and be sure to adjust the syringe to the correct dose for the horse.Harmful if swallowed. Will irritate eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Wash hands after use. Additional information is in the Material Safety Data Sheet.First Aid If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 131 126. If product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water.Disposal Dispose of empty containers by wrapping with paper and putting in garbage.
Dosage and AdministrationAdminister orally at a dose rate of 0.4 mg/kg moxidectin and 2.5 mg/kg praziquantel. The ready to use syringe is calibrated according to the bodyweight of the horse to be treated, in intervals of 25 kg bodyweight. Use of this calibration will deliver the recommended dose. Preparation of the syringe. Hold the syringe with the capped end pointing to the left so the weight measurements and the tick marks (small black lines) can be seen. Turn the dial ring until the left side of the ring lines up with the weight of the animal. Remove the barrel cap and save it for later use if required. Administration. Ensure the animal's mouth is empty; with your thumb on the plunger, insert the nozzle of the syringe into the horse's mouth at the space between front and rear teeth, and make sure the tip of the syringe is over the back of the tongue. Deliver the dose of gel onto the back of the tongue by gently pushing the plunger until it stops. Raise the horse's head once dosing is completed to ensure the gel is swallowed. More than one syringe is needed to treat horses weighing more than 575 kg. Surplus gel. If gel remains in the syringe once the full dose has been delivered, replace the barrel cap; store the remaining gel below 30°C (room temperature) for later use, but do not use after the expiry date shown on the label. If the first animal treated weighed less than 575 kg, there will be gel left in the syringe, which can be used to treat a second horse. To set the next dose, add the weight of the animal to be treated to the dose setting already on the syringe. For example if the syringe was first used to treat a foal weighing 100 kg, the green ring dial is set on 100 kg. To treat a horse of 400 kg next, move the green dial ring to the 500 kg marking.
StorageStore below 30°C (room temperature).
