Dosage and Administration
To reduce the development of antimicrobial resistance and maintain effectiveness, use this antibiotic prudently.
Swine: Add the contents of this jar to 1500 liters of drinking water (provides 67 mg antibiotic activity per liter). For automatic medicators set to deliver 7.8 mL of stock solution per liter (1 oz per U.S. gallon) prepare stock solution by dissolving the contents of this jar in 11.7 liters of water.
Treatment: At the first sign of disease, administer medication at the above dosage as the sole source of drinking water for 4 to 7 days.

For automatic medicators set to deliver 7.8 mL of stock solution per liter of drinking water (1 oz per U.S. gallon), prepare stock solution by dissolving contents of this jar in 0.9 liters of water.
Prevention: To prevent losses due to CRD, administer at the above dosage for the first 3 to 5 days of life and again for one or two days at about 4 weeks of age. The longer period (5 days) of initial administration is recommended if disease has been a problem in the past on the premises.
Treatment: Begin treatment at the above dosage at the first sign of disease. Administer as the sole source of drinking water for 5 to 7 days.
