Dosage and Administration

For topical administration. Clean the affected area thoroughly before spraying. Treatment of foot conditions should always be preceded by appropriate paring of the hoof, as this is critical for achieving an adequate response.

Shake the container for at least 3 seconds before spraying. Spray for 5 seconds to prime the valve before using. The container should be held a distance of 15-20 cm from the area to be sprayed. Spray for approximately 3 seconds until the treatment-area is evenly coloured.

For prevention of infections, a single administration is recommended.

Sheep: As an aid in the treatment of interdigital dermatitis (footrot), a one-time treatment consisting of two applications (with a 30 second interval) is recommended.

Cattle: As an aid in treatment of digital dermatitis active lesions, a double administration (with a 30 second interval) is recommended daily for 3 consecutive days.

After spraying the feet, the animal should be kept on dry ground for at least one hour.
