Weather conditions, ambient temperature, humidity, age, class of livestock, and other factors may affect consumption and, except where calves are drenched, the unit dosage should be used as a guide to effective use in drinking water. Animal must actually consume enough medicated water to provide the desired therapeutic dose under the conditions that prevail.
