Revalor-100 Dosage And Administration

Dosage Form

One implant containing 100 mg trenbolone acetate and 10 mg estradiol is administered to each animal.

The 5 pellets which make up the dosage of Revalor®-100 are contained in one division of the multiple dose cartridge. Ten doses are in each cartridge. The cartridge is designed to be used with the Revalor® implant gun.

Administration

a) Site of Administration:

The implant is placed under the skin on the posterior aspect of the ear by means of the Revalor® implanter available from Intervet Canada Corp. After properly restraining the animal to allow access to the ear, cleanse the skin at the implant needle puncture site. The implant is placed subcutaneously between the skin and cartilage on the back, middle third of the ear below the midline (see Fig. 1). The implant must not be placed closer to the head than the outer edge of the cartilage ring. The location of needle insertion is at a point corresponding to the center of the ear with the needle directed towards the head, and at least a needle length away from the intended deposition site (see Fig. 2). Care should be taken to avoid injuring the major blood vessels or cartilage of the ear.

b) Method of Administration:

1. Do not remove the cap of the cartridge containing the implants (labelled C on the Fig. 3 diagram).

2. Place the cartridge (D) (with the capped end to the front) into slot at the top of the implanter magazine (labelled A on the diagram).

3. Gently push the cartridge into the slot until it clicks into place.

4. The implanter is now ready for use.

5. Take the ear of the animal firmly with the free hand in the manner shown in Figure 1. Then insert the needle into the subcutaneous tissue at the point indicated in Figure 2. Press the trigger (labelled E on the Fig. 3 diagram).

6. The retraction bar will automatically withdraw the needle from the ear aiding in depositing the pellets of the implant in a single row.

7. The gun automatically advances the cartridge to the next implant.

8. When all the implants have been administered, the cartridge will fall out of the bottom of the magazine and may be replaced by a new one.

9. To change the needle, loosen the needle locking nut (labelled F in figure 3) and replace the needle. Tighten the nut finger tight and the implanter is ready for use.
