VetGun Available for Lease to Control Flies

Return to Crops and Livestock Agent Articles

The Johnson County Livestock Association has a VetGun available to use. Members may use the gun for free.  Non-members may join the association for $10 and then use the gun.

If you are not familiar, the VetGun uses CO2 power to project a precise dosage of AiM-L™ VetCap to treat the animal, without any handling. The VetCap is an encapsulated liquid insecticide 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.

Call the Johnson County Extension office to use the gun.
