    In cattle: A single treatment of 1 ml (5 mg doramectin) per 10kg bodyweight, equivalent to 500 µg/kg bodyweight, applied topically along the mid-line of the back in a narrow strip between the withers and tailhead. To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under- and over-dosing.
