Mixing Directions

FOR SWINE, CALVES AND TURKEYS: 2.52 oz. (two scoops) dissolved in 500 mL (approximately 17 fl. oz.) of warm water will provide a stock solution of 100 mg of tetracycline hydrochloride activity per mL. FOR TURKEYS ONLY: This stock solution when metered at approximately 1 oz. per gallon, will provide drinking water containing 2,957 mg of tetracycline hydrochloride activity per gallon.

The contents of two scoops are sufficient to deliver the recommended daily dosage levels as follows:

At 25 mg/lb of body weight - 2,040 total lbs of turkeys to be medicated.

At 10 mg/lb of body weight - 5,100 total lbs of swine or calves to be medicated.

Individual calf treatment - 5 mL (1 measuring teaspoonful) twice daily for each 100 lbs of body weight administered as a drench or by dose syringe.

FOR CHICKENS AND TURKEYS: To arrive at the recommended dosages, use the enclosed contents of 2 scoops to prepare stock solutions as follows:
