Prevention of Swine Dysentery
For treatment of swine dysentery, feed at 178.1 g/tonne for 14 days. Feed continuously as the sole ration.
For prevention of swine dysentery, feed continuously at 31.2 g/tonne as the sole ration to swine on premises with a history of swine dysentery but where signs of the disease have not yet occurred. Feed continuously at 31.2 g/tonne to prevent reinfection following use of tiamulin at 178.1 g/tonne for 14 days or following use of tiamulin medicated water for treatment of swine dysentery associated with Brachyspira hyodysenteriae.
1. Swine being medicated with Vetmulin Premix should not have access to or be treated with tiamulin incompatible polyether ionophores (e.g., monensin, lasalocid, narasin, salinomycin and semduramicin).
2. Discontinue use if signs of toxicity occur.
3. Acute cases and severely diseased animals with reduced feed intake should be treated with a product of suitable formulation such as an injectable or water solution.
1. Treated animals must not be slaughtered for use in food for at least 7 days after the latest treatment with this drug at 178.1 g/tonne for therapy for swine dysentery or at least 2 days after use at 31.2 g/tonne for prevention of swine dysentery.
2. When handling the product, avoid inhalation, oral exposure and direct contact with skin or eyes. If contact occurs, wash with soap and water.
3. Keep out of reach of children.
1. Do not use in feed containing pellet binding agents.
2. Do not feed to animals other than swine.
3. Do not use undiluted.
4. Do not administer to sows and gilts during 4 weeks after service.
1. Overdoses of Vetmulin Premix have sometimes produced transitory salivation, vomiting and an apparent calming effect on the pig. In very rare cases, death has been reported.
2. In rare cases, redness of the skin, primarily over the ham and underline, has been observed during medication.
3. If signs of toxicity or redness of the skin occurs, promptly discontinue use of the therapeutic level of medicated feed.
