DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Warm product to room temperature, stir contents before use. Withdraw required dose with syringe supplied. Recommended dose is 5mL twice weekly.

  • Racing horses: Give 5mL twice weekly over the back of the tongue. 24 hours before race day, give 10mL to achieve high blood levels prior to the stresses of racing. The pre-race loading will also ensure the metabolic co-factors are readily available to enable a quick recovering following the race.
     
  • Competition horses: Give 5mL twice weekly during periods of hard training and competition. While travelling away from home for several days, give 10mL 4-6 hours prior to travelling and then 5mL every third day while away. This will help replenish energy stores, encourage appetite and minimise the stress of competing in a strange environment. Ponies should be given 1mL per 100kg bodyweight.
     
  • Horses recovering from illness or injury: Following illness, injury of worm burden, MEGAVITE-B® will provide a readily available source of B-complex vitamins to improve metabolic processes, stimulate appetite and assist recovery. Give 1mL per 100kg bodyweight twice weekly until the horse is fully recovered.
