VetGun® Kit Insecticide Delivery System
The VetGun™ Delivery System is an innovative new way to apply insecticides to cattle without any handling. The VetGun uses precision-engineered CO2 power to project a precise dosage of AiM-L™ VetCap to treat the animal, without any handling at all.The VetCap is a patented new dosage form that encapsulates liquid parasiticides in a special softgel capsule. It is delivered using SmartVet’s VetGun delivery system. The VetGun is designed to fire the VetCaps out to a range of about 30 feet. The VetCap bursts on the cow, releasing its contents; the formulation then goes to work in a similar way to pour-on products. The VetGun and VetCaps are engineered not to startle the cattle, and minimize any discomfort caused by the dosing process. Putting down a lick, hay or feed creates a positive association with the dosing process, and helps reduce any stress. With most animals there is only a momentary reaction before they return to feeding. The entire process can be completed quickly, and with far less disruption or stress than any conventional processes that require cattle to be gathered, yarded or run through a chute. The VetGun is proving to be an excellent tool in low stress handling systems. For more about low stress treatment and our Best Practice treatment guide, click here.
