Instructions for Loading and Injection Implant
1. To load implant into implant device, insert implant into point end of implant needle.
2. Clean injection site with an alcohol swab.
3. Pick up fold of loose skin over shoulders, and insert needle into loose subcutaneous tissue under skin. Avoid deeper muscle layers (see inset).
4. Inject implant.
5. Remove needle.
6. Clean needle with alcohol swab before each use.
Step 1: Loading the implant as shown above into the Terbinafine implanter needle. This syringe device can be used over 1000 times with a new needle when needed. The Terbinafine syringe should be wiped clean with alcohol after each use to avoid the risk of infection and transmittable diseases.
Step 2-3: To implant have the veterinary technician secure the Animal. The use of local anesthetic is at the discretion of the implanting veterinarian. The Animal must be positioned to expose the implantation site (loose skin, back of neck and between shoulder blades). Prepare injection site by wiping area thoroughly with alcohol. Lift the loose skin at the injection site between thumb and index finger. Insert needle subcutaneous the full length of needle, approximately 1 inch (2.5cm). Needle must be positioned under and on a parallel plane to the surface of skin.
Step 4-6: Care must be taken not to penetrate muscle tissue or unintentionally damage the hair. With needle in proper position, depress fully injection device inserting implant. With injection device fully depressed, withdraw needle to insure that implant stays in place. Keep the animal restrained for a few seconds after injection, so that the thumb can be pressed on the injection hole for a few seconds to enable the animal tissue to become reorganized. It is up to the veterinarian to inspect the site and diagnose any further need to close the implanted hole (i.e. skin glue). In case of bleeding and swelling of animal tissue, the necessary medical treatment should be provided. For more information on Terbinafine, please refer to the website www.MELATEK.net.
