Important Safety Information
Prior to use, please consult the product label for complete instructions.
MILK: DO NOT USE on sheep which are producing or may in the future produce milk or milk products for human consumption. WOOL: DO NOT USE less than 2 months before shearing or fibre collection. MEAT: DO NOT USE less than 7 days before slaughter for human consumption.

Directions For Use
DO NOT DILUTE before product use. DO NOT USE on sheep with less than six weeks wool growth.
Use only a spray-on applicator gun recommended by Elanco.
Ensure the applicator gun is clean.
Calibrate applicator gun using an accurate volume measure.
Ensure all areas to be protected are treated.
When preventing body strike ensure bands overlap along the midline (Diagram 1).
This product is not ideal for treating existing strikes. Treated larvae may take three to four days to die. Use a product registered as a dressing for existing strikes (e.g. Extinosad™ Aerosol, Extinosad™ Eliminator).
Should not be mixed with any other product.
Should not be applied during gusty or windy weather as spray drift will reduce the period of protection.
Heavy rain following the application of this product could diminish the period of protection.
Vetrazin™ Spray-On is coloured for band identification. This scourable dye will disappear shortly after treatment.
Vetrazin™ Spray-On has been shown to be compatible with many standard spray-on applicators, including those powered by either compressed air or LPG. The guns approved are the NJ Phillips PAM754 and the Genesis V-Grip™, Hi-Flow™ and 30 mL Power Doser™.
A fan spray nozzle must be used to ensure that all areas of the sheep prone to flystrike are protected. After use wash with warm, soapy water and rinse with clean water.
Should not be used on open wounds e.g. wounds resulting from marking or mulesing operations.
