Do not use in veal calves. Effectiveness and animal safety in veal calves have not been established.
Load the Implanter following the instructions supplied with each implanter.
Prepare the Implant Site
Scrub the back side of the ear (implant site) with a
piece of clean absorbent cotton which has been soaked with a germicidal
solution. Follow manufacturer's directions on germicide for correct
strength and preparation of solution. Avoid getting into animal's eyes.
Where to Implant
The full contents of one cartridge cell should be
implanted beneath the skin on the back side of the middle one-third of
the ear as illustrated in the drawing. The implant must not be closer to
the head than the edge of the auricular cartilage ring farthest from
the head. The location for insertion of the needle is a point toward the
tip of the ear and at least a needle length away from the intended
Avoid injuring the large arteries, veins and cartilage of the ear.
Implant the Pellets
After inserting the needle fully in the correct implant
position squeeze the trigger fully. As the needle is withdrawn from the
ear, the controlled-pressure plunger action properly deposits the
implant in the needle track. This procedure should prevent breakage or
crushing of pellets if otherwise forced into contact with tough
fibrous-tissue underlying the skin. The length and total contact area of
a single dose are designed to permit absorption of the hormones after
implantation to stimulate good weight gain. Broken or crushed pellets
may interfere with rates of gain and may lead to undesirable side
effects such as noted in the Caution.
Clean the Needle
Clean the implanter needle with alcohol or a properly diluted germicidal solution prior to implanting the next animal.
Store at controlled room temperature 15° to 30° C (59° to 86° F)
DO NOT refrigerate - avoid excessive heat and humidity.
