NOROMECTIN Paste Oral Broad Spectrum Parasite Control for Horses is given orally at the recommended dose level of 200 µg ivermectin/kg liveweight.

Remove the plastic cap from the tip of the nozzle. Make sure the horse’s mouth does not contain feed. Insert the syringe into the side of the horse’s mouth in the gap between the front and back teeth. Advance the plunger as far as it will go, depositing the medication on the rear of the tongue. Immediately raise the horse’s head for a few seconds after dosing to ensure the full dose has been swallowed.

Contraindictions, Warnings etc
Some horses have experienced reactions with swelling and itching shortly after treatment. In most cases the horses have been diagnosed as carrying heavy infection of Onchocerca microfilariae, and it is assumed the reactions were the result of microfilariae dying in large numbers. Although the signs have resolved in a few days, symptomatic treatment may be advisable. Consult your veterinarian if these clinical signs persist.
Resolution of summer sores involving extensive tissue changes may require other appropriate therapy in conjunction with treatment with NOROMECTIN Paste Oral Broad Spectrum Parasite Control for Horses. Reinfection and measures for its prevention should also be considered. Consult your veterinarian if the condition does not improve.
