DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: This syringe contains sufficient paste to treat
one 1500 lb horse at the recommended dose rate of 91 mcg ivermectin per lb (200
mcg/kg) body weight. Each weight marking on the syringe plunger delivers enough
paste to treat 250 lb body weight. (1) While holding plunger, turn the knurled ring
on the plunger 1/4 turn to the left and slide it so the side nearest the barrel is at
the prescribed weight marking. (2) Lock the ring in place by making a 1/4 turn to
the right. (3) Make sure that the horse's mouth contains no feed. (4) Remove the
cover from the tip of the syringe. (5) Insert the syringe tip into the horse's mouth at
the space between the teeth. (6) Depress the plunger as far as it will go, depositing
paste on the back of the tongue. (7) Immediately raise the horse's head for a few
seconds after dosing.
PARASITE CONTROL PROGRAM: All horses should be included in a regular
parasite control program with particular attention being paid to mares, foals and
yearlings. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and routine
treatment repeated as appropriate. Consult your veterinarian for a control program
to meet your specific needs. IverCare® (ivermectin) Paste 1.87% effectively controls
gastrointestinal nematodes and bots of horses. Regular treatment will reduce the
chances of verminous arteritis caused by Strongylus vulgaris.
PRODUCT ADVANTAGES: Broad-spectrum Control - IverCare® (ivermectin)

of S. vulgaris, with a single dose. IverCare® (ivermectin) Paste 1.87% is a potent
antiparasitic agent that is neither a benzimidazole nor an organophosphate.
ANIMAL SAFETY: IverCare® (ivermectin) Paste 1.87% may be used in horses of all

INFORMATION FOR HORSE OWNERS: Swelling and itching reactions after treatment with Ivermectin Paste have occurred in horses carrying heavy infections
of neck threadworm microfilariae (Onchocerca sp.). These reactions were most
likely the result of microfilariae dying in large numbers. Symptomatic treatment may
be advisable. Consult your veterinarian should any such reactions occur. Healing
of summer sores involving extensive tissue changes may require other appropriate
therapy in conjunction with treatment with Ivermectin Paste. Reinfection, and
measures for its prevention, should also be considered. Consult your veterinarian if
the condition does not improve.
