Component TE-G ImplantsThis treatment applies to the following species:
(trenbolone acetate and estradiol)
IMPLANTS FOR INCREASED RATE OF WEIGHT GAIN IN PASTURE STEERS/HEIFERS AND FEEDLOT STEERS
FOR PASTURE STEERS/HEIFERS (195-320 kg) AND FEEDLOT STEERS (215-330 kg)
FOR VETERINARY USE ONLY
20 DOSE CARTRIDGE BELT
For use with a Component Implanter
Component TE-G Implants is an implant containing 40 mg of trenbolone acetate USP and 8 mg of estradiol USP. Each implant consists of 2 small yellow pellets.
INDICATIONS FOR USE:
This product contains trenbolone acetate and estradiol, in a slow-release delivery system, which increases rate of weight gain in pasture steers/heifers weighing 195-320 kg and feedlot steers weighing 215-330 kg.
Directions For Use
For subcutaneous ear implantation in animals use a Component Implanter to implant the entire contents of one cartridge (2 pellets) per animal. The pellets must not be removed from the cartridge prior to implantation. The proper implantation technique is fully described in the enclosed leaflet. Never sacrifice careful, clean technique for speed of implantation.
One implant containing 40 mg trenbolone acetate and 8 mg estradiol is administered to each animal. The two pellets which make up the dosage of COMPONENT TE-G Implants are contained in one division of the multiple dose cartridge belt. Twenty doses are in each cartridge belt. The cartridge belt is designed to be used with a Component Implanter.
Directions For Use
For subcutaneous ear implantation in animals use a Component Implanter to implant the entire contents of one cartridge (2 pellets) per animal. The pellets must not be removed from the cartridge prior to implantation. The proper implantation technique is fully described. Never sacrifice careful, clean technique for speed of implantation.
Component TE-G Implants Caution
Not to be used in animals intended for subsequent breeding.
WarningDo not use in calves to be processed for veal. Implant pellets in the ear only. Do not attempt salvage of implanted site for human or animal food. Do not use in dairy cattle. Keep out of reach of children.
StorageStore in a refrigerator (2° to 8°C) and protect from sunlight.
Study the instructions which should be followed carefully at all times. Avoid short cuts. Skin infections can be avoided by properly preparing implant site. During fly season use fly repellent on implant site. One designated team member should always do the implanting. Cleanliness of hands and instruments is important at all times.
Loading The Implanter
Load the Implanter following the instructions supplied with each Implanter.
Restrain The Animal
Speed of implantation as well as safety of handlers is best achieved by restraining animal in a squeeze chute using head restraint.
Prepare The Implant Site
Scrub the backside of the ear (implant site) with a piece of clean absorbent cotton which has been soaked with topical germicidal solution. Follow manufacturer’s directions on germicide for correct strength and preparation of solution. Avoid getting in animal’s eyes.
Where To Implant
The full contents of the cartridge (all 2 pellets) should be implanted beneath the skin on the back side of the middle one-third of the ear as illustrated in the drawing. The implant must not be closer to the head than the edge of auricular cartilage ring farthest from the head. The location for insertion of the needle is a point towards the tip of the ear at least a needle length away from the intended deposition site. Avoid injuring the arteries, veins and cartilage of the ear.
Insert The Needle
With one hand firmly grasp the ear. With other hand insert needle point through the skin and ease forward on a lateral plane until the entire length of the needle is under the skin.
Implant The Pellets
After inserting the needle fully in the correct implant position, squeeze the trigger fully as the needle is withdrawn from the ear. This properly deposits the implant in the needle track. This procedure should prevent breakage or crushing of pellets if otherwise forced into contact with tough fibrous-tissue underlying the skin. The length and total contact area of the single dose are designed to permit absorption of the hormones after implantation to stimulate good weight gain. Broken or crushed pellets may interfere with rates of gain.
Clean The Needle
Disinfect the implanter needle with a germicidal solution prior to implanting the next animal.
