Dosage & Administration
Large animals : 5 to 10 ml or more

The dosages should be adjusted individually. If possible small doses are given first because it has often been shown that antiallergic drugs are effective in comparatively small dosage.
Asta-Vet may be administered intramuscularly or intravenously. The onset of action depends on the mode of administration. Mostly there is an immediate effect on intravenous administration; on intramuscular administration, it takes about
10-20 minutes for the effect to set on.
Injection may be repeated after 8-12 hours, if necessary.
