This dosage recommendation is based on a water consumption of 1 gallon
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 in drug concentration in
drinking water must be made to ensure proper drug intake. For
individual treatment of cattle, SULFADIMETHOXINE ORAL SOLUTION may be
given as a drench. Administer using the same mg/lb dosage as outlined
above. Four fluid ounces will medicate one-600 lb animal initially, or
two-600 lb animals on a maintenance dose.
*1 fl oz SULFADIMETHOXINE ORAL SOLUTION = 30 mL or 2 tablespoonfuls.
**Set the proportioner to a feed rate of 1 fl oz of SULFADIMETHOXINE ORAL SOLUTION per
gallon of water.
Chickens and Turkeys: If animals show no improvement within 5 days,
discontinue treatment and re-evaluate diagnosis. Handle the recommended
dilutions 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 to 3
days, re-evaluate diagnosis. Treatment should not be continued beyond 5
