|Instructions for use||Eqvalan Duo oral paste for horses is given by mouth at the recommended dose rate. Each syringe division delivers sufficient paste to treat 100kg of bodyweight and a full syringe delivers sufficient paste to treat 600kg bodyweight at the recommended dose rate.
The horse’s weight should be accurately determined to ensure use of the correct dose of product. Use of a scale or weigh tape is recommended to ensure accurate dosing.
Before administration adjust the syringe to the calculated dosage by setting the ring on the plunger.
The animal’s mouth must be free of food. The syringe should be placed between the front and back teeth and the paste deposited at the base of the tongue. Immediately elevate the head for a few seconds to ensure that the product is swallowed.
Treatment is recommended at least twice a year, in spring and autumn. Use alongside Eqvalan in summer to provide all year round protection from intestinal parasites.
