Sulfadimethoxine in Water
Water Consumption
(Summer) 1 gallon/† 100 lb b.w.
(Winter) 1 gallon/† 150 lb b.w.
First day add:
1 pint (16 fl oz) to: 25 gallons 16 gallons
1 quart (32 fl oz) to: 50 gallons 33 gallons
1 gallon (128 fl oz) to: 200 gallons 127 gallons

1 pint (16 fl oz) to: 50 gallons 33 gallons
1 quart (32 fl oz) to: 100 gallons 66 gallons
1 gallon (128 fl oz) to: 400 gallons 266 gallons

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.

Treatment Period:

5 consecutive days.
*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 days.
