At this rate, a gallon of drinking water will treat a 100 lb pig or a 100 lb calf at the rate of 10 mg per lb of body weight for one day.

Residue Warnings: Do not administer to chickens, growing turkeys, swine, and cattle within 24 hours of slaughter. Do not use in lactating dairy cattle and laying chickens. A withdrawal period has not been established in pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.

General Information on Dosage: Dosages in terms of packets per 512 gallons are based on stated dosages per unit of body weight and average water consumption of the species. Weather conditions, ambient temperature, humidity, age, class of livestock and other factors may affect consumption and, except where calves are drenched, the unit dosage should be used as a guide to effective use in drinking water. Animal must actually consume enough medicated water to provide the desired therapeutic dose under the conditions that prevail.
