ValuMax Red Tube can be administered directly in the mouth or mixed
in with the horses feed.
To give the correct amount of paste, turn the ring on the plunger on the syringe
to the appropriate bodyweight setting. Each weight marking on the syringe plunger will deliver sufficient paste to treat 50kg bodyweight.
Administration by mouth:
Turn the ring on the plunger to the appropriate bodyweight setting. 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 paste on the rear of the tongue. Immediately raise the horse’s head for a few seconds to ensure the full dose has been swallowed.
If there is any paste remaining, replace the cap on the syringe and store at room temperature until needed again. For hygiene concerns, it is not advisable to use the same syringe of different horses.
