**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 must be made in the dilution rates to compensate for this and insure proper drug intake.

Twenty fluid ounces of cattle stock solution will medicate one-600 lb animal initially or two-600 lb animals on a maintenance dose. Contents of packet will medicate six-600 lb animals initially or twelve-600 lb animals on a maintenance dose.

TREATMENT PERIOD: 5 consecutive days

CAUTION: CHICKENS AND TURKEYS - If animals show no improvement within 5 days, discontinue treatment and re-evaluate the 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, re-evaluate diagnosis. Treatment should not be continued beyond 5 days.
