Precautions

Sulmet sulfamethazine works fast. If symptoms persist after using this preparation for 2 or 3 days, consult a veterinarian. Excessive dosage may cause toxic reactions. Follow above dosages carefully. Fluid intake must be adequate while treating with Sulmet. For best advice in the control and treatment of disease, consult a veterinarian. Treatment of all diseases should be instituted early. Treatment should continue 24 to 48 hours beyond the remission of disease symptoms, but not to exceed 5 consecutive days.

Residue Warnings: Treated cattle must not be slaughtered for at least 10 days after the last dose. Exceeding five (5) consecutive doses may cause violative tissue residue to remain beyond the withdrawal time. Do not use in calves under one (1) month of age or calves being fed an all-milk diet. Use in these classes of calves may cause violative residues to remain beyond the withdrawal time. Do not use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older. Use of sulfamethazine in this class of cattle may cause milk residues.

Do not use in horses intended for human consumption.
