NOTE TO PHYSICIAN/VETERINARIAN: Probable mucosal damage may contraindicate the use of gastric lavage. Paramite® L.A. is an organophosphate insecticide and a cholinesterase inhibitor. If signs of cholinesterase inhibition are present, atropine is antidotal. 2-PAM is also antidotal and may be administered in conjunction with atropine. If ingested, do not induce vomiting. May present aspiration hazard. Usual symptoms of organophosphate poisoning in humans include: headache, blurred vision, weakness, nausea, discomfort in the chest, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, salivation, sweating, and pin-point pupils. Usual symptoms of poisoning in animals include: salivation, labored breathing, gastrointestinal disturbance, tremors, staggering, and pin-point pupils.

Do not contaminate water by cleaning of equipment or disposal of equipment washwaters or rinsate. Drift and runoff from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas.

Physical Or Chemical Hazards

Do not use or store near heat or open flame. Protect from temperatures below 20° F.
