This dosage recommendation is based on a water consumption of 1 gallon per 100 lb of body weight per day, the expected water consumption rate for summer. Water consumption during cold months (winter) may drop markedly (30-40%). Accordingly, adjustments in drug concentration in drinking water must be made to ensure proper drug intake.

TREATMENT PERIOD - 5 consecutive days

* 1 fl oz Sulfadimethoxine 12.5% Drinking Water Solution = 30 mL or 2 tablespoonfuls.
