Give orally as a drench. 10 mg of closantel per kg bodyweight (i.e. 1 ml of product per 5 kg bodyweight). For example: Bodyweight: Dose Up to 5 kg: 1 ml, 10 kg: 2 ml, 20 kg: 4 ml, 30 kg: 6 ml, 40 kg: 8 ml, 50 kg: 10 ml, 60 kg: 12 ml, 70 kg: 14 ml, 80 kg: 16 ml. To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible- accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their body weight and dosed accordingly in order to avoid under- or over-dosing. The timing for treatment should be based on epidemiological factors and should be customised for each individual farm. As with other anthelmintics, veterinary advice should be sought on appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve adequate parasite control and reduce the likelihood of resistance developing. Suitable for use with most types of standard drenching equipment. Shake well before use.
