Administration via the Ralogun®

  • Insert the cartridge (with the large hollow axle facing to the back i.e. toward the pistol grip) until it snaps into place.
  • Always use a sharp needle as a blunt needle tears tissue and makes proper implanting difficult.
  • Wipe the intended puncture site on the backside of the ear with a piece of cotton or gauze moistened with rubbing alcohol.
  • Insert the needle of the Ralogun® under the loose skin and above the cartilage on the back side of the ear as shown. After the needle has been inserted its full length under the skin the point of the needle should reach into the pocket under the loose skin near the base of the ear. In this area you can pick up the skin with your fingertips.
  • N.B. Avoid damage to blood vessels and cartilage.
  • Squeeze the trigger of the Ralogun® to deliver the full dose of Ralgro® Sheep. Keep the trigger depressed while withdrawing the needle to be sure that the Ralgro® Sheep implant remains in position.
  • Wipe the needle with cotton or gauze moistened with alcohol or other suitable disinfectant. Do not dip the needle in solution as it could clog the needle.
  • Rotate the cartridge in direction indicated by the arrow until a new dose is visible and centred in window.
  • The Ralogun® is now ready for next implantation.
