Description

Effective in the treatment of shipping fever complex and bacterial pneumonia associated with Pasteurella spp. sensitive to sulfadimethoxine; and footrot and calf diphtheria associated with Fusobacterium necrophorum sensitive to sulfadimethoxine in beef and dairy cattle, including lactating dairy cows. Low dose provides rapid, sustained blood levels at higher levels than most other long-acting sulfonamides.

Each bolus contains either 5 grams or 15 grams sulfadimethoxine.

Animals should receive an initial dose of 25 mg/lb of body weight followed by subsequent daily doses of 12.5 mg/lb of body weight.

400 lbs - 2 boluses 1st day; 1 bolus daily for following 3-4 days

1,000-1,200 lbs - 2 boluses 1st day; 1 bolus daily for following 3-4 days
