?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 the individual treatment of cattle, DI-METHOX (Sulfadimethoxine) 12.5% Drinking Water Solution may be given as a drench. Administer using the same mg/lb. dosage as outlined above. Four fluid ounces will medicate one-600 lb animal initially or two-600 lb animals on maintenance dose.

TREATMENT PERIOD - 5 consecutive days

* 1 fl oz DI-METHOX (Sulfadimethoxine) 12.5% Drinking Water Solution = 30 mL or 2 tablespoonfuls.

** Set proportioner to a feed rate of 1 fl oz of DI-METHOX (Sulfadimethoxine) Stock Solution per gallon of water.
