*Note: Make a cattle stock solution by adding 1-107 g packet of SulfaMed-G® Soluble Powder to 1 gallon of water, 1-535 g packet of SulfaMed-G® Soluble Powder to 5 gallons of water, or 3 scoops of SulfaMed-G® Soluble Powder to 1 gallon of water.

**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 must be made in the dilution rates to compensate for this and insure proper drug intake.

Contents of 535 g packet will medicate thirty-600 lb animals initially or sixty-600 lb animals on a maintenance dose.

During treatment period, make certain that animals maintain adequate water intake.

If animals show no improvement within 2 or 3 days, re-evaluate diagnosis. Treatment should not be continued beyond 5 days.
