*Note: Make a cattle stock solution by adding 1 packet of VetOne® Sulfadimethoxine 107g Powder to 1 gal of water.

*Twenty fl oz of cattle stock solution will medicate 1-600 lb animal initially or 2-600 lb animals on maintenance dose. Contents of packet will medicate 6-600 lb animals initially or 12-600 lb animals on maintenance dose.

**This dosage recommendation is based on a water consumption of 1 gal 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 must be made in the dilution rates to compensate for this and insure proper drug intake.

For treatment of individual cattle, VetOne® Sulfadimethoxine 107g Powder stock solution for cattle may be given as a drench.

Treatment Period: 5 consecutive days
