We use pharmaceutical grade plastic bottles, so they won't break and tamper proof lids so they won't come off in the bike carrier box or when out and about on the farm
How to use
All Agripathics remedies come in liquid form, as we find this is the easiest way to administer.
You can treat a dairy cow or farm animals individually or at the herd level.
Homeopathic remedies are best administered on to a mucus membrane, for dairy cows this means either the nose or vulva. When the cows are in the dairy shed the easiest way to administer is to spray on to the vulva.
I like to administer at least 3 times per milking - when the cow comes into the shed, when I put the cups on and again when I take the cups off. I usually do 3-4 sprays as a single dose. This allows her to have at least 5 minutes between doses and works really well at getting the amount needed into the cow to get an effective response.
For other farm animals, the remedy is best administered into the mouth, food or water.
This is best done by putting into their water trough, so putting 1-2 capfuls in their drinking water means each time they drink they are getting dose.
How long will a bottle last:
Individual treatment: there are 750 single doses in a 200ml bottle and 1875 in a 500ml
Herd treatment: at 1 capful rate there are 40 doses per 200ml bottle and 72 per 500ml
All instructions on how much to use and duration are on the bottle.
Caution: If this preparation fails to alleviate the condition being treated the user should seek veterinary advice.
"This is a must for any hoof problems. I gave this just recently to a young steer who wouldn't walk on his right hoof, administering it every five minutes, four times. by the same evening he had his foot back on the ground! A great combination of remedies to cover hoof problems. Thank you!" Teresa Hastings
