Neovet Indications

Indicated for the treatment and control of colibacillosis (bacterial enteritis) caused by Escherichia coli susceptible to neomycin sulfate in cattle, swine, sheep and goats. If symptoms such as fever, depression, or going off feed develop, oral neomycin is not indicated as the sole treatment since systemic levels of neomycin are not obtained due to low absorption from the gastrointestinal tract.

Dosage and Administration

Administer to cattle, swine, sheep and goats at a dose of 10 mg neomycin sulfate per pound of body weight in divided doses for a maximum of 14 days.

DOSAGE SCHEDULE FOR TREATMENT OF COLIBACILLOSIS:

Pounds of body weight

Amount of Neomycin Solution Per Day in Divided Doses

25 lbs

1/4 teaspoonful

50 lbs

1/2 teaspoonful

100 lbs

1 teaspoonful

300 lbs

1 tablespoonful

600 lbs

1 fluid ounce

USE DIRECTIONS: Teaspoon = U.S. Standard Measure

Neomycin Solution may be given undiluted or diluted with water.

Herd Treatment: Each 16 fl oz (473 mL) bottle will treat 9,600 pounds body weight. Each 1 gallon (3.785 L) bottle will treat 76,800 pounds body weight. Therefore, estimate the total number of pounds body weight of the animals to be treated and administer one (1) fluid ounce for each 600 pounds. The product should be added to the amount of drinking water to be consumed in 12-24 hours. Provide medicated water as the sole source of water each day until consumed, followed by non medicated water as required. Fresh medicated water should be prepared each day.

Individual Animal Treatment: To provide 10 mg neomycin sulfate per pound of body weight, mix one (1) teaspoon in water or milk for each 100 pounds per body weight. Administer daily either as a drench in divided dosages or in the drinking water to be consumed in 12-24 hours.

RESTRICTED DRUG-USE ONLY AS DIRECTED (CALIFORNIA)

FOR ORAL USE IN ANIMALS ONLY

CONTAINS per mL: neomycin sulfate (commercial grade) 200 mg equivalent to 140 mg neomycin

IMPORTANT: Treatment should continue 24 to 48 hours beyond remission of disease symptoms, but not to exceed a total of 14 consecutive days. Animals not drinking or eating should be treated individually by drench.

Precautions

To administer the stated dosage, the concentration of neomycin required in medicated water must be adjusted to compensate for variation in age and weight of animal, the nature and severity of disease signs, and environmental temperature and humidity, each of which affects water consumption.

Storage

Store at controlled room temperature 20° to 25° C (68 to 77° F).
