Calways consult a veterinarian or animal care specialist before using the flavomycin premix. If the problem does not improve or worsen, call a veterinarian or animal care specialist. Flavomycin is not intended for human consumption.
The usual dosage is 1 to 2 g per ton of feed for broilers, 2 to 4 g per tonne of feed for growing hogs, and 1 to 2 g per tonne for growing turkeys. Do not exceed the recommended dose and complete the entire treatment, as early withdrawal may lead to recurrence or aggravate the problem.
After administration, flavomycin is rarely absorbed and not metabolized by livestock. After 24 hours, the droppings are almost completely unchanged. It can promote livestock growth and increase the food reward as a food additive.
Some important considerations are as follows:
- Do not use for ducks, geese and pigeons;
- Do not use in breeding or adult ruminants other than feeder cattle;
- Do not mix or use foods containing other antibiotics or growth factors simultaneously.
Consult an animal care specialist for any other medication the animal has taken and its medical history prior to treatment with flavomycin premix.
