Copinox Ewe/Calf 4g capsule, hard
Dosage and administration
For oral administration only. Place the capsule at the back of the mouth, beyond the hump of the tongue, using a suitable dosing gun fitted with the special adaptors provided. The 4g capsule is inserted at one end and the other is attached to the drench gun. The capsule is ejected by expulsion with water. Conventional balling guns may also be employed. To avoid injury, the dosing gun should be used carefully and without force. Normal swallowing movements should allow the dose to be passed easily into the back of the mouth, the capsule may then be ejected and passage of the gun beyond this point is not necessary. Always check that the animal swallows the capsule.
