SUBCUTANEOUS IMPLANTS FOR STEERS AND HEIFERS FED IN CONFINEMENT FOR SLAUGHTER
Synovex Choice (trenbolone acetate and estradiol benzoate implants) is a growth promoting implant containing 100 mg of trenbolone acetate and 14 mg of estradiol benzoate. Each implant consists of 4 pellets. Ten implants are provided in each cartridge.
NOTE: Studies have demonstrated that the administration of Synovex Choice can result in decreased marbling scores when compared to non-implanted steers and heifers.
DOSAGE: One implant (four pellets), containing 100 mg of trenbolone acetate and 14 mg of estradiol benzoate, is administered to each steer or heifer by subcutaneous implantation in the middle one-third of the ear.
The ten-dose cartridge of Synovex Choice is designed to be used exclusively with a Synovex Applicator.
DIRECTIONS: Implant complete contents of one cartridge cell per steer or heifer. Approved implantation technique is fully described in the fold-out carton section.
NOTE: Never sacrifice careful, clean technique for speed of implantation.
HOW TO IMPLANT
For use with the Synovex Applicator
Study the following instructions carefully, then proceed step by step, until the technique becomes routine. Many head can be implanted per hour by an experienced team, one member of which should be assigned to do nothing but the implantation. Care should be taken to insure the hands of the person administering the implant are clean and only sanitary instruments are used.
INDICATIONS FOR USE: For increased rate of weight gain in steers fed in confinement for slaughter, and for increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in heifers fed in confinement for slaughter.

STEP 1 Loading The Applicator
Load the applicator following the directions outlined in the instruction manual accompanying each applicator.
Additional information for the individual applicator user guides can be found at: www.growwithsynovex.com.
STEP 2 Restraint
The animal must be confined in a restraint mechanism (squeeze chute or head gate). The implant site on the back of the ear should be prepared by scrubbing with a firm bristled brush that has been soaked in a germicidal solution.
Note: If implanting horned cattle, greater safety is provided when the head is controlled by the use of a bull lead (nose tongs).
STEP 3 Implant Site
Divide the ear into three imaginary sections as illustrated. The implanted pellets should be deposited in the center one-third of the ear as shown. To accomplish this, the applicator needle should be inserted in the outer one-third of the ear as indicated by the “X” in the illustration. Implanting too close to the head may cause abnormal sexual behavior. Care should be taken to avoid severing the major arteries of the ear.
STEP 4 Insert Needle
Grasp the ear with one hand. Holding the applicator firmly with the other hand, penetrate the skin at the point shown by the “X”. Thrust the needle under the skin taking care not to penetrate the cartilage. Ease the applicator forward (toward the base of the ear) until the full needle length is beneath the skin.
STEP 5 Pellet Implantation
When the needle is completely inserted, activate the instrument by squeezing the trigger completely. Refer to instructions for individual applicator.
STEP 6 Inspection
Check the implant site. If properly administered, the implants should lie in a straight line under the skin.
Re-cock the applicator. Disinfect the applicator needle in a germicidal solution. The applicator is now ready to implant the next animal.
