Feeding Directions

Allow the mixed milk replacer solution to cool to 100˚ F before feeding. Feed the entire volume of medicated milk replacer solution (approximately 2 quarts) twice daily to provide 1000 mg of oxytetracycline and 1000 mg of neomycin base for each 100 pounds of calf body weight daily. Feed the medicated milk replacer in place of normal calf milk replacer continuously for 7 to 14 days. If symptoms persist after feeding the medicated milk replacer for 2 or 3 days, consult a veterinarian. Continue feeding the medicated milk replacer for 24 to 48 hours after the remission of disease symptoms.
