Administering Marquis (ponazuril) to the horse:
NOTE: The paste syringe is a multi-dose package. Ensure that the correct dose is administered with each use.
Step 1. Remove end cap and gently apply pressure to the plunger until paste is seen at the tip of the syringe barrel. Return end cap to tip of paste syringe.
Step 2. Determine weight of horse and insure the horse's mouth contains no feed.
Step 3. To measure dose, dosage ring collar and barrel collar should be flush. Hold plunger and rotate dosage ring with the other hand to the weight of the horse.
Step 4. Remove end cap from tip of syringe barrel.
Step 5. The selected dose of paste should be deposited onto the back and top of the horse's tongue. Introduce tip of paste syringe into the side of the horse's mouth at the space between the front (incisor) and back (molar) teeth. Deposit paste on the horse's tongue by depressing the plunger of the syringe as far as the dose ring permits. Remove tip of syringe from horse's mouth.
Step 6. To aid swallowing of paste, immediately raise horse's head for a few seconds after dosing.
Step 7. Clean the tip of the syringe with a clean disposable towel and return end cap to tip of syringe barrel.
Step 8. For the next daily dose, repeat steps 1-7.
NOTE: At the end of the prescribed treatment period, partially used syringes should be discarded.
