  • Dosage

    To ensure the correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing. Cattle, sheep and pigs- By intramuscular injection only. Dogs and cats- By subcutaneous or intramuscular injection. The recommended dosage rate is 15 mg per kg bodyweight, repeatable if necessary after 48 hours. Massage the injection site. Shake the vial before use. Swab the septum before removing each dose. Use a dry sterile needle and syringe. A separate injection site should be used for each administration. Dose volume is equivalent to 1 ml per 10 kg bodyweight. If dose volume exceeds 20 ml, it should be divided and injected into two sites. As with other injectable preparations normal aseptic precautions should be observed. An appropriately graduated syringe must be used to allow accurate administration of the required dose volume. This is particularly important when injecting small volumes.
