Boehringer Ingelheim’s has released a new applicator gun for their Synanthic bovine dewormer suspension that allows producers to dial-a-dose.
The durable gun is made of metal and holds up to tough conditions and the wear and tear of handling cattle. It also features a dial-a-dose system that gives producers the option to easily adjust dosage units for different cattle weights. The gun is made specifically for Synanthic.
A broad spectrum anthelmintic, Synanthic is effective for the removal and control of lungworms, roundworms, and tapeworms in cattle. Synanthic is a low-dose product, requiring just 5 mL per 550 pounds of body weight. With the new dial-a-dose system, producers are able to quickly adust between 3 and 15 mL, providing more accurate dosing and reduced product waste, with less processing time and stress.
“We have a responsibility to use dewormers as judiciously as possible to help prevent resistance,” said Mitch Johnson, senior marketing manager at BI. “Synanthic uses a concentrated solution, which allows for a lower dose, so you can get more deworming done with less dewormer. We invested in the new applicator gun to make the application experience the best it can be for both the animal and our customers.”
