Apply the measured dose in approximately equal portions to the mane and rump avoiding the saddle area. (Take care to avoid eye contact. The product must not be applied forward of the ears.) 

Treatment should be started at the beginning of the sweet itch season and should be repeated as necessary - treatment once weekly should be sufficient for most horses. If horses and donkeys are to be groomed, apply Switch after grooming.

Any resulting skin irritation or skin reaction is short lived.
