Directions For Use

Dosage:

Administer medicated feed daily for ten consecutive days to provide approximately 15 mg of active ingredients per kg of live body weight of fish per day.

Preparation of Medicated Feeds:

Establish the weight of the fish to be treated and calculate the amount of feed needed per day according to fish size and water temperature. Calculate the amount of premix required for medicating the feed at the rate of 5 g of premix/100 kg of fish body weight per day.

Medication of Feed Before Pelletizing or Extruding:

Medication Of Feed After Pelletizing

Prepare a liquid slurry by suspending the premix in edible vegetable oil or 5% gelatin solution. Coat the pelleted fish feed with the slurry, which should be constantly agitated to ensure uniform suspension of the premix during addition. As a general rule, one litre of vegetable oil or gelatin solution is required to coat 25 kg of pellets. For example, to medicate 3,000 kg of fish for one day, with a 3% body weight feed intake, mix 150 g of premix with 4 litres of vegetable oil to prepare a slurry to be used for coating 90 kg of pellets. Pellets may be placed in a cement mixer (if 25 kg or more is to be coated) or spread on plastic or a smooth concrete surface for the coating process. The pellets should be mixed constantly but gently while the slurry is being slowly added to insure even distribution without undue pellet breakage. The coated pellets are then spread out and allowed to air dry for several hours. Re-bag and store under proper feed storage conditions.

Note

If fish show no improvement within 4 to 5 days, or if signs of disease reappear after termination of treatment, re-evaluate management practices, diagnosis of outbreak, and establish susceptibility of the bacterial isolate(s) to the drug.

Labels for feeds containing Romet® 30 must list appropriate indications, limitations, and warnings, as well as required feed ingredient information.

Storage

To be stored in a dry place at room temperature. Close bag securely after use.
