Ecomectin 18.7 mg/g Oral Paste for Horses
Ecomectin contains a highly purified ivermectin, offering the highest possible level of quality, safety and efficacy. Ecomectin is a tried and tested remedy against ecto and endo parasites.
The product can be administered to mares at any stages of pregnancy or lactation. Do not use in mares producing milk for human consumption.
Dosage: One syringe division of paste per 100 kg body weight (based on a recommended dosage of 200 microgram ivermectin per kg body weight). The syringe containing 6.42 g of paste delivers sufficient paste to treat 600 kg of bodyweight at the recommended dose rate. The syringe containing 7.49 g of paste delivers sufficient paste to treat 700 kg of bodyweight at the recommended dose rate.
Administration: The paste is given by oral route. The weight of the horse should be accurately determined for the correct use of the paste. The animal’s mouth should be free from food to ensure swallowing. Turn the screw gauge on the syringe plunger to the body weight of the horse. The tip of the syringe barrel should be inserted at the interdental space (the gap between the front and back teeth) and the paste deposited on the base of the tongue. Advance the plunger as far as it will go, depositing the medication on the base of the tongue. Immediately elevate the horse’s head for a few seconds to ensure swallowing.
