Cattle should be dosed on first signs of lungworm infection. For external administration only. Pour on from the calibrated dispenser or using a standard dosing gun. Apply along the flattest part of the backline at the rate of 10 mg levamisole/kg bodyweight, equivalent to 2.5 ml per 50 kg bodyweight.

To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible- accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.
