Sheep Bolus Applicator Instructions
Remove boluses from foil pack and ensure they are at room temperature (15-20oC) before administering. Boluses are sensitive to sudden changes in temperature, such as may happen when very cold boluses are swallowed by the animal. Ensure boluses are at room temperature prior to administration, to avoid fine cracks developing which may change the activity of the bolus.
Insert the bolus completely into the head of the applicator until the push rod is engaged.
applicator-lambPlace the bolus end of the applicator into the centre of the sheep's mouth to the back of the tongue and squeeze the trigger. The bolus should release easily. If resistance is felt you will need to adjust the position of the gun until the bolus easily releases.
To prevent the bolus falling out of the applicator, ensure the flat edge of the bolus is placed against the ridged edge in the applicator.
Ensure that the animal swallows the bolus. The swallow reflex should happen easily and the sheep should have no trouble swallowing the bolus.
If the the reflex does not occur easily you may not be administering the bolus into the very back of the tongue and you will need to adjust your technique to ensure that the positioning of the bolus is just right.
The stem of the applicator should be straight down the centre line of the head and the trigger handle should be in the vertical plane.
Consult your animal health advisor prior to administering boluses.
