Dosage and Administration

Administer Tetra Bac 324 in the drinking water of swine and calves at a level of tetracycline hydrochloride per gallon to provide approximately 10 mg/lb. of body weight daily for 3 to 5 days.

Administer Tetra Bac 324 in the drinking water of chickens and turkeys at a level of 25 mg/lb. of body weight daily for 7 to 14 days.

Do not mix this product with milk or milk replacers. Administer one hour before or two hours after feeding milk or milk replacers. Drug use level must be adjusted to provide 10 mg/lb. of body weight daily in divided doses for swine and calves or, in the case of chickens and turkeys, 25 mg/lb.

SWINE: A stock solution of 71.4g dissolved in 1500ml (approximately 50fl. oz. or 3 pints) of warm water provides about 34mg of tetracycline hydrochloride activity per ml. Enclosed cup will provide approximately 71.4 g when measured at the 3 oz level.

This stock solution metered at 1 oz/gallon will provide drinking water which contains approximately 1000mg of tetracycline hydrochloride activity per gallon.

CALVES: For individual dosing, prepare a solution of 71.4g dissolved in 500ml (approximately 16fl. oz. or 1 pint) of warm water which provides about 100 mg of tetracycline hydrochloride activity per ml. Enclosed cup will provide approximately 71.4g when measured at the 3 oz level.

Administer 5 ml (1 measuring teaspoonful) of the stock solution (100 mg/ml) twice a day for each 100 lb. of body weight as a drench or by a dose syringe. This will provide the recommended dosage level of 10 mg/lb. of body weight daily in divided doses.

This stock solution metered at 1 oz./gallon will provide drinking water which contains approximately 1,000 mg of tetracycline hydrochloride activity per gallon.
