Sulmet works fast. If symptoms persist after using this preparation for 2 or 3 days, consult your veterinarian. Excessive dosage may cause toxic reactions. Follow dosage and administration instructions carefully. Hatchability of eggs laid during medication with sulfas, and for short periods thereafter, may be adversely affected.
Treatment of all diseases should be instituted early. Treatment should continue 24 to 48 hours beyond the remission of disease symptoms, but not to exceed a total of 5 consecutive days in cattle or swine.
Do not medicated chickens or turkeys producing eggs for human consumption. To avoid drug residues in edible flesh withdraw medication from chickens and turkeys ten (10) days prior to slaughter for food.
Treated cattle must not be slaughtered for at least ten (10) days after the last dose. Exceeding five (5) consecutive days of treatment may cause violative tissue residue to remain beyond the withdrawal time. Do not use in calves under one (1) month of age or calves being fed an all-milk diet. Use in these classes of calves may cause violative residues toremain beyond the withdrawal time. Do no use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older. Use of sulfamethazine in this class of cattle may cause milk residues.
Withdraw medication from swine fifteen (15) days prior to slaughter for food.
