Pig Swig Indications

PIG SWIG (PIPERAZINE WATER WORMER) is a relatively non-toxic treatment for the removal of large roundworms (Ascaris lumbriocoides) and nodular worms (Oesophagostomum spp.) from swine, and roundworms (Ascaridis spp.) from poultry.

Worms are usually expelled within one day after treatment.

GENERAL DIRECTIONS

1. Remove all sources of drinking water the night before treatment.

2. Determine amount of medicated water needed from poultry or pig dosage schedule. Prepare this quantity of water using the proper schedule as a guide.

NOTE: Atmospheric temperature alters water consumption. Adjust dosage table to current amount consumed.

3. Administer as the ONLY drinking water for one to two days.

4. Retreatment according to schedule in thirty days is recommended. The drinking water dilutions on the label are based on a water consumption of 1 gallon of drinking water per 100 lb. of body weight for swine. If water consumption is more or less, the above dosages will have to be adjusted to the amount consumed.

INDIVIDUAL DOSE FOR SWINE: Give one fluid ounce (2 tablespoonfuls) for 100 lbs. body weight. 1 cupful equals approximately 8 fl. oz.

POULTRY DOSAGE SCHEDULE: For chickens, add 1 fl. oz. of Piperazine Water Wormer to 1 1/4 gallons of drinking water. For turkeys, add 2 fl. oz. of Piperazine Water Wormer to 1 1/4 gallons of drinking water. These dilutions are sufficient for 100 chickens under 6 weeks of age or 50 chickens over 6 weeks of age, and for 100 turkeys up to 12 weeks of age or 50 turkeys over 12 weeks of age.
