VetGun™ Kit for Vetcaps
Treating lice and horn flies is a nightmare for any cattle owner. It can take hours to treat an entire herd by rounding up the stock and processing them through a chute. Other treatment methods such as sprays, eartags, feed additives, and dustbags do not offer a particularly speedier alternative, either. Not to mention hand-treating cows in a busy, rambunctious herd is not always the safest activity in the world.
This is where the Vetgun from AgriLabs comes in. This is a handheld tool which allows cattle owners to treat their entire herds quickly and from a safe distance. Mother cows will be less likely to turn aggressive when you are treating them and their calves. This gun-like tool fires 10ml capsules of lambda cyhalothrin, which burst upon impact. Cows will be protected from lice and horn flies in a quick, pain-free dose, and the handlers do not have to get too close to the animals to treat them. Because it’s so easy to use, the Vetgun can treat more cows at a quicker rate than if the stock owner was using a chute or other methods.
For safety, stand 15-30 feet away from cattle when using the Vetgun.
