*Note: Make a cattle stock solution by adding 1 packet of Sulfadimethoxine Soluble Powder to 1 gal of water.

*Twenty fl oz of cattle stock solution will medicate 1-600 lb animal initially or 2-600 lb animals on maintenance dose. Contents of packet will medicate 6-600 lb animals initially or 12-600 lb animals on maintenance dose.

**This dosage recommendation is based on a water consumption of 1 gal per 100 lb of body weight per day, the expected water consumption rate for summer. Water consumption during cold months (winter) may drop markedly (30%-40%). Accordingly, adjustments must be made in the dilution rates to compensate for this and insure proper drug intake.

For treatment of individual cattle, Sulfadimethoxine Soluble Powder stock solution for cattle may be given as a drench.

Treatment Period: 5 consecutive days


Chickens and Turkeys — If animals show no improvement within 5 days, discontinue treatment and reevaluate diagnosis. Prepare a fresh stock solution daily. Handle the recommended dilutions (chickens 0.05% and turkeys 0.025%) as regular drinking water. Administer as sole source of drinking water and sulfonamide medication. Chickens and turkeys that have survived fowl cholera outbreaks should not be kept for replacements or breeders.

Cattle — During treatment period, make certain that animals maintain adequate water intake. If animals show no improvement within 2 or 3 days, reevaluate diagnosis. Treatment should not be continued beyond 5 days.

Chickens and Turkeys — Withdraw 5 days before slaughter. Do not administer to chickens over 16 weeks (112 days) of age or to turkeys over 24 weeks (168 days) of age.

Cattle — Withdraw 7 days before slaughter. For dairy calves, dairy heifers and beef cattle only.

A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in pre-ruminating calves.
