Standard use calls for administration of 91 mcg ivermectin per pound of body weight. The full contents of one syringe is the appropriate dose for a horse weighing 1,250 lbs. Syringes are marked at 250-lb. increments.

Follow your veterinarian's recommendations for safe and effective use of Eqvalan in your horse(s).

Directions:

  1. Clear the horse's mouth of any feed residue.
  2. Turn the knurled ring on the plunger ¼ turn to the left.
  3. Slide the ring so the nearest side of the barrel is at the appropriate weight increment.
  4. Turn the ring ¼ turn to the right to lock it in place.
  5. Remove the cover from the tip of the syringe.
  6. Place the tip of the syringe over the back of the horse's tongue.
  7. Press on the plunger, administering the full dose.
  8. Lift the horse's head slightly and hold it in place for several seconds.
  9. Wash your hands with water and soap.
