Bolus Gun for Cattle CoSecure Boli
1. Insert the bolus completely into the head of the applicator until the push rod is engaged.
2. Place the bolus end of the applicator into the cows 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.
3. Ensure that the animal swallows the bolus. The swallow reflex should happen easily and the cow should have no trouble swallowing the bolus. If the reflex does not occur easily you may not be administering the bolus onto the very back of the tongue. 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.
4. Repeat the process. Both cows and calves over 100kgs require two boluses.
Do not administer to calves of less than 100kgs or those that are not ruminating.
