Screw the plastic adjuster out 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 towards 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 the full dose has been accepted.
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.
