ADMINISTRATION METHOD of Cattle Medicine
Make sure that medicine touches the tongue of the animal for faster relief and quick action. Increasing the dose should be avoided; rather decreasing the time intervals between successive drug administrations is advisable. Dissolve the pills in drinking water or directly rub the crushed pills on the tongue of the animal. Different methods of administration:
Method 1: Mix some jaggery and the bolus medicine in the drinking water and let the animal drink the mixture directly.
Method 2: Spread the powdered medicine on a piece of roti or bread and offer it to the animal to eat, so that medicine is consumed along with food.
Method 3: Fill an empty 5 mL syringe (needless) with the dissolved medicine solution in water and directly spray on the tongue of the animal or into the nostrils gently. Confirm that the medicine is licked by the animal.
Note: Do not drench the medicine, let the animal lick the medicine with the tongue while eating or drinking.
