Low dose

Five mL/550 pounds of body weight dose reduces product waste, provides more accurate dosing, and allows for less processing time and stress.

Safety: There are no contraindications for the use of SYNANTHIC Bovine Dewormer Suspension, 22.5%, in cattle.

Economical

Unlike Safe-Guard, SYNANTHIC controls L4, inhibited L4 O. ostertagi and tapeworms without the need for doubling the label dosage (and the cost).

Convenient

With just one squeeze from the applicator per head, drenching is complete.

Fast and long-acting

SYNANTHIC reaches peak blood concentrations in approximately 20 hours. When compared to Safe-Guard® administered at 1.5 times the label dosage, SYNANTHIC remained at higher concentration levels for a longer period of time. 1

Effective

Demonstrated efficacy against major intestinal parasites including L4, inhibited L4 Ostertagia ostertagi and tapeworms.
