Administer capsule orally with suitable balling gun. Administer only intact capsules, do not crush or break. Do not administer to animals of unknown copper status or those supplemented with other sources of copper. Veterinary advice should be sought before treating breeds such as North Ronaldsay, Texels or Lleyns known to be copper sensitive.
