  • Dosage and Administration


    The recommended rate of administration for Tauramox™ Injectable is 1 mL for each 110 lb (50 kg) body weight to provide 0.2 mg moxidectin/2.2 lb (0.2 mg/kg) body weight. The table below will assist in the calculation of the appropriate volume of injectable which must be administered based on the weight of animal being treated. Be careful not to overdose animals; estimate animal’s body weight as closely as possible or weigh animals individually.

    Tauramox Dosing by Weight

    * Do not underdose. Ensure each animal receives a complete dose based on a current body weight. Underdosing may result in ineffective treatment and encourage the development of parasite resistance.

Needles ½ to ¾ inch in length and 16 to 18 gauge are recommended for subcutaneous injections. Use sterile, dry equipment and aseptic procedures with withdrawing and administering Tauramox™.
