VetGun™ & VetCap™:
The revolutionary VetGun™ Delivery System.
VetGun™ & VetCap™: what it is and how it works
The VetGun uses precision-engineered CO2 power to project a precise dosage of AiM-L™ VetCap to treat the animal, without any handling at all.The VetCap is a patented new dosage form that encapsulates liquid parasiticides in a special softgel capsule. It is delivered using SmartVet's VetGun delivery system. The VetGun is designed to fire the VetCaps out to a range of about 30 feet. The VetCap bursts on the cow, releasing its contents; the formulation then goes to work in a similar way to pour-on products. The VetGun and VetCaps are engineered not to startle the cattle, and minimize any discomfort caused by the dosing process. Putting down a lick, hay or feed creates a positive association with the dosing process, and helps reduce any stress. With most animals there is only a momentary reaction before they return to feeding. The entire process can be completed quickly, and with far less disruption or stress than any conventional processes that require cattle to be gathered, yarded or run through a chute. The VetGun is proving to be an excellent tool in low stress handling systems.

Eliminating herding and yarding reduces the amount of time and labor needed to control parasites; it also improves overall welfare by making the process safer for both the cattle and the ranchers. Cattle relieved of parasite burdens are less stressed and healthier. Healthier cattle have better conversion rates, higher conception rates, calve more successfully and wean heavier calves. Using the VetGun translates into better animal welfare and substantial productivity gains for producers !
