To reduce the development of antimicrobial resistance and maintain effectiveness, use this antibiotic only during periods of increased risk of ruminal acidosis, for the shortest duration required.

Due to the multifactorial approach needed to reduce the risk of liver abscesses, the management of the animals’ vaccination status, environment and nutrition should be optimized prior to or concurrently with antibiotic treatment.

Thoroughly mix V-Max 44 premix with complete feed in quantities depending on the dosage as per the table below.
