Dosage and Administration

The syringe contains sufficient paste to treat one 1250 lb horse at the recommended dose rate of 91 mcg ProMectin E (ivermectin) per lb (200 mcg/kg) body weight. Each weight marking on the syringe plunger delivers enough paste to treat 250 lb body weight.

(1) While holding plunger, turn the knurled ring on the plunger to the right so the side nearest the barrel is at the prescribed weight marking. (2) Make sure that the horse's mouth contains no feed. (3) Remove the cover from the tip of the syringe. (4) Insert the syringe tip into the horse's mouth at the space between the teeth (5) Depress the plunger as far as it will go, depositing paste on the back of the tongue. (6) Immediately raise the horse's head for a few seconds after dosing.

PARASITE CONTROL PROGRAM: All horses should be included in a regular parasite control program with particular attention being paid to mares, foals and yearlings. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. Consult a veterinarian for a control program to meet your specific needs. ProMectin E (ivermectin) Paste effectively controls gastrointestinal nematodes and bots of horses. Regular treatment will reduce the chances of verminous arteritis caused by S vulgaris.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES: Broad-spectrum Control - ProMectin E (ivermectin) Paste kills important internal parasites, including bots and the arterial stages of Strongylus vulgaris, with a single dose. ProMectin E (ivermectin) Paste is a potent antiparasitic agent that is neither a benzimidazole nor an organophosphate. Safety - ProMectin E (ivermectin) Paste may be used in horses of all ages, including mares at any stage of pregnancy. Stallions may be treated without adversely affecting their fertility.

RESIDUE WARNING: Do not use in horses intended for food purposes.

ProMectin E Paste Caution

ProMectin E (ivermectin) Paste has been formulated specifically for use in horses only. This product should not be used in other animal species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result. Refrain from smoking and eating when handling. Wash hands after use. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. Ivermectin and excreted ivermectin residues may adversely affect aquatic organisms. Do not contaminate ground or surface water. Dispose of the ProMectin E (ivermectin) Paste syringe in an approved landfill or by incineration.

NOTE TO USER: Swelling and itching reactions after treatment with ProMectin E (ivermectin) Paste have occurred in horses carrying heavy infections of neck threadworm (Onchocerca sp.) microfilariae. These reactions were most likely the result of microfilariae dying in large numbers. Symptomatic treatment may be advisable. Consult a veterinarian should any such reactions occur. Healing of summer sores involving extensive tissue changes may require other appropriate therapy in conjunction with treatment with ProMectin E (ivermectin) Paste. Reinfection, and measures for its prevention, should also be considered. Consult a veterinarian if the condition does not improve.
