Make a cattle stock solution by adding 1 packet of SULFADIMETHOXINE 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 in drug concentration in drinking water must be made to ensure proper drug intake. For treatment of individual cattle, SULFADIMETHOXINE SOLUBLE POWDER stock solution for cattle may be given as a drench. Administer using same mg/lb dosage as outlined above. Twenty fluid ounces of cattle stock solution will medicate one-600 lb animal initially or two-600 lb animals on maintenance dose. Contents of packet will medicate six-600 lb animals initially or twelve-600 lb animals on maintenance dose.

Treatment Period:

5 consecutive days


Chickens and Turkeys: If animals show no improvement within 5 days, discontinue treatment and re-evaluate diagnosis. Prepare a fresh stock solution daily. Handle the recommended dilutions (chickens 0.05% and turkeys 0.025%) as regular drinking water. Administer as sole source of drinking water and sulfonamide medication. Chickens and turkeys that have survived fowl cholera outbreaks should not be kept for replacements or breeders.

During the 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.


Chickens and Turkeys: Withdraw 5 days before slaughter. Do not administer to chickens over 16 weeks (112 days) of age or to turkeys over 24 weeks (168 days) of age.

Cattle: Withdraw 7 days before slaughter. For dairy calves, dairy heifers and beef cattle only. A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in preruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
