Switch Equine is a external pour-on liquid to aid control of Sweet Itch in horses and donkeys.
Packaging: a clear solution containing 4% (4 g/100 ml) of the synthetic pyrethroid permethrin (cis:trans 80:20) for external application only.
Administration: Switch is a ready-to-use solution that should be applied at the rate of 1 ml per 10 kg bodyweight to a maximum of 40 ml.
Dosage in relation to bodyweight: Up to 100 kg (10 ml) / 200 kg (20 ml) / 300 kg (30 ml) and Over 300 kg (40 ml).
Directions for use: Switch should be applied using the calibrated dispensing chamber incorporated into the applicator bottle, then apply the measured dose in approximately equal portions to the mane and rump avoiding the saddle area. (Take care to avoid eye contact /the product must not be applied forward of the ears.), treatment should be started at the beginning of the sweet itch season and should be repeated as necessary - treatment once weekly should be sufficient for most horses and if horses and donkeys are to be groomed apply Switch after grooming.
This should not be used in food producing animals.
Our vet says... "Sweet itch is common in horses and is caused by the allergic reaction to bites from midges. Switch can be applied weekly from early spring to prevent sweet itch from occurring. If your horse already has sweet itch, apply to the mane and hindquarters and any areas which are affected. Try to avoid the saddle area."
