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 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 in 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.
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 product works really well. We had ticks on the cows and when we started treatment, noticed a mass reduction in tick within 24 hours. We started adding it into their water trough but then tried putting it into the teat spray mix, seems to work just as well. Really pleased with the outcome." Brett
