Dosage and Administration
To reduce the development of antimicrobial resistance and maintain effectiveness, use this antibiotic prudently and for the shortest duration required to achieve the desired clinical outcome.
Prevention: When birds are moved to an area where they will be more susceptible to contact with the disease, mix 30 mL of Sulfa-Q with 20 L of drinking water. Give this medication for 2 consecutive days, then stop treatment for 3 days. If necessary, repeat the treatment until all dangers of infection are gone.
Treatment: When clinical signs of coccidiosis are first observed, mix 30 mL of Sulfa-Q with 20 L of drinking water and give to birds for 2 consecutive days; then for the next three days give water without medication. Continue this treatment for 2 days out of 5 and repeat until all clinical signs of the disease have disappeared. During the treatment, medicated water should be the only source of drinking water.
For automatic proportioner: Set the apparatus to distribute 30 mL of stock solution per 4 L of drinking water (1 oz/U.S. gallon). Prepare a stock solution by adding 1 L of Sulfa-Q to 4 L of water. This will medicate approximately 666 L of drinking water. Mix thoroughly.
