Amounts to be administered and administration route
Administer as an oral drench using a dosing gun system at a rate of 7.5 mg Levamisole hydrochloride per kg bodyweight or 1 ml Levacide Low Volume/ 10 kg bodyweight.
To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible. If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under- or overdosing.
Use properly calibrated dosing equipment.
