Swift should be applied using the graduated dispensing chamber incorporated into the container, as

shown on the side of the box.

Apply the measured dose along the backline, ensuring that the mane and the rump are treated. Take

care to avoid eye contact. The product must not be applied forward of the ears. In case of accidental

splashing into the horse's eyes, the affected eye should be washed thoroughly and immediately with

copious quantities of clean water and veterinary attention sought.

Treatment should be started at the beginning of the Queensland Itch season and should be repeated

as necessary. Treat once weekly (or more frequently) as an aid in the control of Queensland Itch.

Treatment as an aid in the control of nuisance flies should be applied every 6 weeks, or as required

depending on insect pressure. The efficacy of Swift can be influenced by rain and activities such as

brushing, washing, rugging, heavy riding, etc. For best results, allow 12 – 24 hours for Swift to dry

before exposing the horse to these activities.

PRECAUTION

A few horses, particularly those of the fine-skinned Arab type, may react adversely to treatment with

Swift. In such individuals, a small patch test is recommended to assess the sensitivity of a horse’s

skin to Swift. Apply a small stripe of Swift (~10 -15 cm long) at the base of the horse’s neck and

observe the area for 3 days. If no reaction occurs, it is safe to apply Swift at the recommended dose

rate. If any subsequent adverse reaction occurs, treatment must be stopped immediately and the

horse washed with a large volume of cold water. Any resulting skin irritation or reaction is normally

short-lived. However, if the irritation persists, seek veterinary advice.

Apply SWIFT during the cooler part of the day, preferably in the shade. Skin reactions may occur if

product is applied during hot weather.

When treating horses within a group, it is recommended to separate each individual horse for 24

hours after application. This is to minimise the opportunity of eye contact with SWIFT by mutual

grooming.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE, OR IN ANY MANNER CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL

UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.

MEAT WITHHOLDING PERIOD: NOT TO BE USED in horses that may be slaughtered for

human consumption.
