Dosage and administration
For topical use only.
To be prepared and administered in adequately ventilated surroundings.
The concentrated Imaverol solution should be diluted by adding 1 part to 50 parts of warm water, to provide a 2mg/ml emulsion (0.2 % w/v). Dermatophytes will extend into the hair follicles. Possible crusts must therefore be removed with a hard brush, which has been soaked in the diluted Imaverol emulsion. It is highly recommended that the animal be sprayed entirely at the first treatment so as to reach the subclinical lesions as well.
- The lesions and surrounding skin should be washed with the diluted emulsion 4 times, at 3-day intervals.
- The animals should be washed with the diluted emulsion 4 times, at 3-day intervals. While doing this, one should rub thoroughly in the direction opposite to the hair growth to make sure that the skin is thoroughly wet. For the same reason, it is recommended that long-haired dogs be clipped before treatment.
- Alternatively dogs may be dipped thoroughly in a bath containing the prepared emulsion.
