DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
The recommended dose is 3.75 grams TUCOPRIM Powder per 50 kg (110 lbs) body weight per day. Each level, loose-filled scoop contains approximately 15 grams which is sufficient to treat 200 kg (440 lbs) of body weight. Since product contents may settle, gentle agitation during scooping is recommended. Administer orally once a day in a small amount of palatable feed.
The usual course of treatment is a single, daily dose for five to seven days. Continue acute infection therapy for two or three days after clinical signs have subsided. If no improvement of acute infections is seen in three to five days, re-evaluate diagnosis.
TUCOPRIM Powder contains 67 mg trimethoprim and 333 mg sulfadiazine per gram.
