Sustain III Calf Boluses (Sulfamethazine Sustained Release Boluses) are intended for oral administration to ruminating replacement calves (calves over one (1) month old that are not on an all-milk diet). Sustain III Calf Boluses are indicated for the treatment of the following diseases when caused by one or more of the following pathogenic organisms sensitive to sulfamethazine: Bacterial Pneumonia (Pasteurella spp.), Colibacillosis (Bacterial Scours) (E. coli), and Calf Diphtheria (Fusobacterium necrophorum).

Sustain III Calf Bolus Caution

This drug, like all sulfonamides, may cause toxic reactions and irreparable injury unless administered with adequate and continuous supervision; follow the recommended dosages carefully. Fluid intake must be adequate at all times throughout the three-day therapy provided by the sustained release bolus. The product has not been shown to be effective for non-ruminating calves.

WARNING: Animals intended for human consumption should not be slaughtered for food for at least 12 days after the last dose. Exceeding two (2) consecutive doses may cause violative tissue residues 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 tissue 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.

 

Sustain III Calf Bolus Dosage And Administration:

Sustain III Calf Boluses (Sulfamethazine Sustained Release Boluses) are designed to be administered orally to ruminating replacement calves. (See CAUTION Statement.) Sustain III Calf Boluses should be given according to the following dosage schedule:

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

Sustain III Calf Boluses are designed to provide a therapeutic sulfamethazine level 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 the persistence of observable disease signs. If signs are present, consult a veterinarian. It is strongly recommended that a second dose be given to provide for an additional 72 hours of therapy, particularly in those more severe cases. The above schedule should be used at each 72-hour interval.
