For use with the VetCaps VetGun Propelled Insecticide Delivery System to treat Horn Flies and Lice in Cattle
The VetGun™ Insecticide Delivery System is a unique system for delivering insecticide-filled AiM-A and AiM-L VetCaps to control horn flies and lice on cattle without having to catch the cattle and run them through the chute. The AiM-L VetCaps, which burst upon contact, deliver the powerful insecticide. The VetGun is powered by CO2 and can be utilized from 15' - 30' away. Simply aim, shoot and treat the cattle.
The VetGun is easy to operate for men and women, quite accurate and a reliable, low stress way to treat cattle. Cattle may be treated while milling around or feeding, without added stress or labor. Allows one person to easily apply insecticide from horseback, pickup, ATV, or while on foot. Saves time and puts you in control of when and where you treat your cattle.

A note about the CO2 Cartridges:
*Each CO2 Cartridge uses approximately 1g per shot. When treating 150 head at one time, we recommend purchasing the 90g CO2 twin pack as the shot size is approximate. The 90g CO2 twin pack treats approximately 180 head.
When treating less than 150 head at a time, we recommend purchasing the 25g CO2 6 pack due to the fact that the CO2 cartridges may not have a long shelf life once opened.
- The leading cause of economic loss in the cattle industry is from parasites, particularly horn flies. Horn flies interrupt cattle from grazing and can cause as much as one pint of blood loss per day per animal, resulting in up to 30 percent less weight gain in just 80 days.
- Overall, horn flies cost the U.S. cattle industry nearly $1 billion per year. Treatment methods against these blood-sucking parasites include spray-ons, pour-ons, insecticide eartags, dustbags and feed additives. But the most traditional horn fly treatments require rounding up the cattle and running them through a chute. This labor-intensive process provides inaccurate dosage control, creates stress and risks injury to you and your cattle.
- Because most cattle raisers try to handle their cattle as little as possible, some parasites aren't treated at the best time or don't get treated at all. VetGun and AiM VetCaps provide control where and when you need it.
