Loading the Implanter
Load the implanter following the instructions supplied with each implanter.
Restrain the Animal
Speed of implantation as well as safety of handlers is best achieved by restraining animal in a squeeze chute using head restraint. When implanting horned cattle, better control is obtained with additional use of nose tongs.
Prepare the Implant Site
Scrub the back side of the ear (implant site) with a piece of clean absorbent cotton which has been soaked with topical germicidal solution. Follow manufacturer’s directions on germicide for correct strength and preparation of solution. Avoid getting disinfectant in animal’s eyes.
Where to Implant
The full contents of one cartridge cell should be implanted beneath the skin on the back side of the middle one-third of the ear illustrated in the drawing. The implant must not be closer to the head than the edge of the auricular cartilage ring farthest from the head. The location for insertion of the needle is a point toward the tip of the ear at least a needle length away from the intended deposition site. Avoid injuring the large arteries, veins and cartilage of the ear.
Insert the Needle
With one hand firmly grasp the ear. With the other hand insert needle point through the skin and ease forward on a lateral plane until the entire length of the needle is under the skin.
Implant the Pellets
After inserting the needle fully in the correct implant position, squeeze the trigger fully as the needle is withdrawn from the ear. This properly deposits the implant in the needle track. This procedure should prevent breakage or crushing of pellets if otherwise forced into contact with tough fibrous-tissue underlying the skin. The length and total contact area of a single dose are designed to permit absorption of the hormones after implantation to stimulate good weight gain. Broken or crushed pellets may interfere with rates of gain.
Clean the Needle
Clean the implanter needle with alcohol or a properly diluted germicidal solution prior to implanting the next animal.
Store unopened product at or below 25°C (77°F). Avoid excessive heat and humidity.
