Dosage and administration
The recommended dose is 200 mcg ivermectin per kg bodyweight and 1mg praziquantel per kg bodyweight (corresponding to 1.29g of paste per 100kg bodyweight in a single treatment). Bodyweight and dosage should be accurately determined prior to treatment. The contents of one syringe will treat horses up to 600kg. Calibrated markings are provided at 100kg bodyweight intervals. The syringe should be adjusted to the calculated dosage by setting the ring on the appropriate place on the plunger.
EQVALAN DUO oral paste is for oral administration only. While holding the plunger, turn the knurled ring on the plunger ¼ turn to the left and slide it so the stop ring is at the prescribed weight marking. Lock the ring in place by turning it ¼ turn to the right in order to bring the two arrows, the one visible on the ring and the one on the plunger rod, into alignment. Make sure the horse's mouth contains no feed. Remove the cover from the tip of the syringe. Insert the syringe tip into the horse’s mouth at the interdental space and deposit the paste on the base of the tongue. Immediately raise the horse’s head for a few seconds after dosing and ensure that the paste is consumed.
