Calcium Gel Oral Supplement a nutritional source of calcium used to help maintain normal calcium levels in dairy cows during the critical pre-calving and immediate post-calving period. Contains easy-to-use non-acidogenic formulation of calcium propionate and calcium oxide in a bland vegetable oil gel that maintains fluidity better than water-based calcium gels in colder weather. Contains no calcium chloride, so it will not burn the cow’s throat.
INGREDIENTS: Vegetable Oil, Calcium Oxide, Calcium Propionate, Kaolin Clay, Aluminum Monostearate
NOTES: This product does not contain calcium chloride (a strong acidic salt). The irritation and acidosis common with calcium chloride gels are prevented with this formulation.
The recommended initial dose is one tube of gel for freshening dairy cattle given before or after calving. If milk fever develops, administer one tube following regular intravenous milk fever treatment to provide supplemental oral calcium. Administer another tube 8 to 16 hours later. If condition continues, consult your veterinarian. Total dose will vary according to the animal’s condition. Do not exceed 2 doses within 24 hours except on the advice of a veterinarian.
ADMINISTRATION: Place cartridge in gel gun. Remove the tip. Restrain animal using a chute, halter or other means. Introduce nozzle end of tube at corner of the mouth. Direct the tube backward and extrude gel on back of animal’s tongue. Use care to prevent injury to the animal. Allow the animal to swallow.
WARNINGS: Not for human use. Use only as directed. Discard empty container. Do not reuse. Store at room temperature.
PRECAUTIONS: The cow must have a swallowing reflex and normal rumen motility for the product to be effective. Animals must be allowed free access to water after administration. During administration, ensure the tube is not forced down the throat. Care must be taken when administering so the product does not enter the trachea and lungs. This can result in severe pneumonia and death.
