USER SAFETY WARNINGS: When mixing and handling Hygromix 8 Type A Medicated Article, use protective clothing, impervious gloves and a NIOSH-approved dust mask. Operators should wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Do not breathe dust. Since it may cause severe and potentially permanent eye damage, do not get on skin or in eyes. Appropriate eye protection to avoid eye/dust contact is required. In case of eye contact, flush with water and obtain prompt medical aid. Avoid contact with skin surfaces. For skin exposure, wash with soap and water. In case of ingestion, induce vomiting. The material safety data sheet contains more detailed occupational safety information. To report adverse effects, access medical information or obtain additional product information, call 1-800-428-4441.

CAUTION: In gilts to be used as breeding stock: Do not use Hygromix 8 because of hearing and vision impairment side effects. In sows: Consideration should be given to hearing and vision impairment side effects. If fed, use for no longer than 8 weeks during gestation and lactation. A reduced response to sound and vision has been noticed in some swine fed Hygromix 8. This impairment of hearing and vision is not an important problem in the market hog. It should, however, be carefully evaluated for breeding stock. Should sows be affected, they will become less responsive to the squeal of baby pigs, possibly resulting in crushed pigs. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism.

Store at or below 25°C (77°F). Excursions permitted to 40°C (104°F).

Not to be used after the date printed on the bag.
