USE DIRECTIONS

Mix fresh solutions daily. Use as the sole source of drinking water. Do not mix this product directly with milk or milk replacers. Administer 1 hour before or 2 hours after feeding milk or milk replacers. Consult a poultry diagnostic laboratory or poultry pathologist for diagnosis and advice on dosage for chickens and turkeys. As a generalization, 200 chickens will drink 1 gallon of water per day for each week of age. Turkeys will consume twice that amount. Administer up to 5 days to swine and 7 to 14 days for chickens and turkeys. NOTE: The concentration of drug required in medicated water must be adequate to compensate for variation in the age of the animal, feed consumption rate, and the environmental temperatures and humidity, each of which affects water consumption.

CAUTION

Use as the sole source of Oxytetracycline. Not to be used for more than 5 consecutive days in swine or 14 consecutive days in chickens and turkeys.

Warning

Do not feed to birds producing eggs for human consumption.
