As an aid in the treatment of infections caused by or associated with microorganisms sensitive to oxytetracycline HCl.

Turkeys: Cholera, enteritis, hexamitiasis and secondary infections associated with bluecomb.

Swine, calves, sheep and lambs: Enteritis (diarrhea) and respiratory diseases.

Bees: American foul brood and European foul brood.


Chickens and turkeys: Dissolve 4 g of powder per 5 L of water or 400 g (1 pouch) of powder per 500 L of drinking water and give for 3 to 5 days.

Swine (scours and respiratory diseases): Dissolve 4 g of powder per 25 kg of body weight every 12 hours, given as a drench in water using a dose syringe or 8 g of powder per 4 L of water or 400 g (1 pouch) of powder per 225 L of drinking water, for 4 or 5 days.

Calves (scours): Dissolve 4 g of powder per 50 kg of body weight every 12 hours, given as a drench in water or 400 g (1 pouch) of powder per 225 L of drinking water, for 3 to 5 days.

Calves (respiratory diseases): Double the above dosage.

Sheep and lambs: Dissolve 4 g of powder per 25 kg of body weight every 12 hours, given as a drench in water for 4 or 5 days.

Bees (prevention and control):

Dusting: Add 4 g of powder to 35 g of powdered sugar or 400 g (1 pouch) of powder to 3.5 kg (total of 3.9 kg). Apply the mixture on the outer parts or ends of the frames at the rate of 32 g per colony.

Syrup: Dissolve 4 g of powder in a small quantity of water with 3 kg of a one part sugar, one part water or 400 g (1 pouch) of powder per 300 kg of the 1:1 syrup mixture. Bulk feed the syrup at the rate of 2.5 kg per colony using feeder pails or division board feeders or by filling the combs.

For both the above methods, usually 3 applications at 4 or 5 days interval are required in the spring and/or fall at least 4 weeks before the main honey flow to prevent contamination of marketable honey.

Oxysol 62.5 Cautions

Honey from bee colonies likely to be infected with foul brood should not be used for preparation of medicated syrup supplements since it may be contaminated with spores of foul brood and may result in spreading the disease.


Only medicated drinking water should be provided during the treatment period and fresh solutions should be prepared daily. 1 teaspoonful equals 4 g. The measuring cup contained herein (10 kg), when filled with a level quantity provides approximately 200 g of product.

Storage Conditions

Store between 15°C and 25°C. Protect from moisture.
