General Directions:

BROAD SPECTRUM

NEOVEST PLUS TAPE LONG ACTING HORSE WORMER AND BOTICIDE GEL is for the

control of tapeworm and all important susceptible strains of gastrointestinal roundworms,

including adult and encysted stages (DL, LL3, EL4) and benzimidazole resistant strains

of small strongyles, and aids in control of early encysted stages (EL3), including inhibited

larvae.

PARASITE CONTROL PROGRAMS

All horses should have a regular parasite control program. Regular treatment will reduce

the risk of diseases due to small and large strongyles such as colic and verminous arteritis.

Reinfection of horses with worms is common and treatment must be repeated routinely to

ensure effective control. The unique long term activity of NEOVEST PLUS TAPE LONG

ACTING HORSE WORMER AND BOTICIDE GEL against worms, including encysted

small strongyles, is particularly useful in reducing the required dosing frequency in strategic

parasite control programs. Retreatment intervals for the control of small strongyles can

be extended to 14 to 16 weeks. Consult your veterinarian for advice on faecal egg count

interpretation and the appropriate program for your specific needs.

*Note:

One syringe is sufficient to treat a horse weighing 575 kg.

For a heavy horse

(weight exceeding 575 kg) it will be necessary to apply more than 1 syringe. For instance,

a 725 kg horse would require 1¼ syringes to treat. To accurately determine the amount

to administer with the second syringe, subtract 575 from the horse’s weight and set the

plunger accordingly. For a 725 kg horse, set the plunger on the second syringe to 150 kg

(725 kg - 575 kg).

Alternatively a 14.4 g syringe could be used to treat horses weighing

up to 700 kg.

LTDDosage & Administration

ADMINISTRATION

Prepare the syringe:

Hold the syringe with the capped end pointing to the left so the weight measurements

and the tick marks (small black lines);

Turn the dial ring until the left side of the ring lines up with the weight of the animal;

Remove the barrel cap and save it for later use if required.

More than one syringe is needed to treat horses weighing more than 575 kg.

[more

than one syringe is needed to treat horses weighing more than 700 kg].

Administer the dose:

Ensure the animal’s mouth is empty;

With your thumb on the plunger,

insert the nozzle of

the syringe into the horse’s

mouth at the space between front and rear teeth, and make sure the tip of the syringe is

over the back of the tongue;

Deliver the dose of gel onto the back of the tongue by gently pushing the plunger until

it stops;

Raise the horse’s head once dosing is completed to ensure the gel is swallowed.

Surplus gel:

Surplus gel can be stored or be used treat a second horse;

If gel

remains in the syringe once the full

dose has been delivered, replace the barrel

cap; Store the remaining gel

below 30°C (room temperature) for later use,

but do not

use after the expiry date shown on the label.

If the first animal treated weighed less than 575 kg [700kg], there will

be gel left in the

syringe, which can be used to treat a second horse. To set the next dose, add the weight

of the animal to be treated to the dose setting already on the syringe. For example if the

syringe was first used to treat a foal weighing 100 kg, the green ring dial is set on 100 kg.

To treat a horse of 400 kg next, move the green dial ring to the 500 kg marking.
