What is compounding?
Drug compounding is often regarded as the process of combining or mixing drugs to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient.
The generic form of Vetmedin is Pimobendan.
Vetmedin is in limited supply. Orders placed will be shipped as product continues to come off backorder.
Oxytet soluble contains oxytetracycline hydrochloride, a broad spectrum antibiotic for use in cattle, sheep, swine, and poultry for the control of specific diseases susceptible to oxytetracycline HCI.
Oxytet works effectively against bacterial enteritis caused by Escherichia coli and Salmonella choleraesuis, as well as bacterial pneumonia caused by Pasteurella multocida, susceptible to oxytetracycline.
Additionally in breeding swine, Oxytet soluble antibiotic powder is used for the treatment of Leptospirosis (reducing the incidence of abortions and shedding of leptospira) caused by Leptospira pomona, susceptible to oxytetracycline.
*All of the above organisms must be susceptible to tetracycline for effective treatment.
Mix fresh solutions daily. Use as the sole source of drinking water. Do not mix this product directly with milk or milk replacer. Administer 1 hour before or 2 hours after feeding milk or milk replacer. Consult a poultry diagnostic laboratory or poultry pathologist for diagnosis and advice on dosage for chickens and turkeys. As a generalization, 200 chickens will drink 1 gallon of water per day for each week of age. Turkeys will consume twice that amount. Administer up to 5 days to swine and 7 to 14 days for chickens and turkeys.
Note: The concentration of drug required in medicated water must be adequate to compensate for variation in the age of the animal, feed consumption rate, and the environmental temperatures and humidity, each of which affects water consumption.
Add the following amount of Oxytet Soluble to one gallon of water to make a stock solution for proportioner set to meter at the rate of one ounce per gallon.
