This bolus may be divided for better approximation of correct dose, however, care should be taken not to crush the bolus. Care should be taken to ensure the entire dose has been swallowed by the animal. Observe animals following administration to ensure boluses are not regurgitated. Lubricate Sustain III® before dosing animals.

Sustain III® boluses are designed to provide a therapeutic sulfamethazine level (5 mg/100 mL) in approximately 6 hours, and persist in providing this level for 72 hours (3 days). After 72 hours, all animals should be re-examined for persistence of observable disease signs. If signs are still present, other therapeutic approaches should be considered. In more severe cases, it is strongly recommended that a second dose be given to provide for an additional 72 hours of therapy. For the second administration use the same dose schedule as above.

Sustain III Bolus Caution

To prevent possible renal damage due to crystallization of the drug in the kidneys, fluid intake must be adequate at all times throughout the three-day therapy provided by each dose of sustained-release boluses.

Contraindications

Do not administer this drug to animals with known sensitivity to sulfonamides or known renal impairment.

Storage

Store between 15 and 25°C. Protect from moisture.
