Use of Calcium Bolus after injection therapy administered by a veterinarian.

Warnings: Only for cows with a normal swallowing reflex. The product must not be administered to a cow that clearly exhibits signs of milk fever, nor to a lying cow with a poor swallowing reflex. Keep in a plastic tube until ready for use, as the product will easily absorb moisture. Use only a dispenser suitable for the purpose. Use only an intact Bolus capsule; a broken capsule can be harmful to the animal’s health. If necessary, consult a veterinarian or a feeding specialist.

To use the Calcium Bolus dispenser, follow these steps:

1. Install the straight end of the Calcium Bolus capsule inside the dispenser, leaving the round end visible.

2. Carefully place the dispenser deep in the cow’s throat by lifting the cow’s head so that its neck remains straight. You can feel that the cow is swallowing.

3. Release the Calcium Bolus capsule from the dispenser into the cow’s throat by pressing the dispenser’s handle. Gently pull the dispenser out of the cow’s throat. Avoid unnecessary use of force.
