Dosage and administration
For oral administration only.
Adult Sheep Dosage
Adult sheep (50Kg) receive one capsule (equivalent to 80 mg CuO/kg for a 50kg sheep).
For the prevention of congenital swayback the dose should be given at tupping or during the first half of pregnancy. It may be advisable to administer the dose during the second or third month of pregnancy rather than at tupping on farms where copper deficiency is particularly severe.
Calf Dosage
Ruminant calves, 75 to 100 kg bodyweight and over 2months of age, may be given 2 x 4g capsules (equivalent to 80mg CuO/kg for a 100kg calf).
Adult sheep and calves may be dosed with standard drench guns fitted with the special adapters provided. The 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 used. Always check that the animal has swallowed the capsule. To be used at intervals of not less than 6 months.
