Always consult a veterinary physician or animal care specialist before using flavomycin premix. If the condition does not improve or becomes worse, then call a veterinary physician or animal care specialist. Flavomycin is not meant for human consumption.
Usual dosage includes: 1-2g per ton of feed in broiler chickens, 2-4g per ton of feed in growing swine and 1-2g per ton feed for growing turkeys. Do not exceed advised dosage, and complete the full treatment, as stopping early can result in a recurrence or worsen the problem.
After administration, flavomycin is rarely absorbed and not metabolized by the livestock. It is discharged almost entirely unchanged in feces after 24 hours. It can promote the growth of the livestock and increase feedstuff reward as feedstuff additives.
Some important considerations are as follows:
- Not to be used for ducks, geese and pigeons;
- Not to be used in breeding stock or adult ruminants other than fattening cattle;
- Do not mix or use simultaneously with any feeding stuff containing any other antibiotic or growth promoter.
Consult with an animal care specialist about any other medications that are being taken by the animal, and their medical history, before their treatment with flavomycin premix.
