    OK I just talked to AgriLabs The shipped out a small supply to distributors this week and will be shipping another small supply out the middle of the month and then again the 1st of Dec. It is going to all areas of the country, so check with your supplier often to get it.

    What is the dosage on this product? I usually use Dimethox 12.5% at 1cc/5lbs day 1 and day 2-5 1cc/10lbs. is it the same?

    No Autumn and will have to look up to see if your even using a correct dose. it is on here somewhere. you have 12 % and this is 40% so the dose is different.

    ALBON & Di-METHOX 40% injectable
    Extra label in goats
    Sulfadimethoxine 400mg/mL [40%]
    Sulfonamides (sulfa drugs):
    Broad spectrum, but high resistance has developed,
    and there is a high incidence of allergic reactions.
    DOSE rate - initial dose - 25 milligrams per pound of body weight followed by 12.5 milligrams per pound of body weight every 24 hours = 1mL (IV or SQ (SC) only) per 16 pounds for initial dose, then reduce by 1/2 for 2-5 days.

    per Vicki

    1cc per 10 pounds given for 5 days...I always use banamine and diarsynal with treatment. Well honestly I haven't had to use treatment since using Corid, so when using sulfa's I used this treatment dosage instead of the prevention dosage of stepping down days 2 through 5 anyway.

    I do recommend sulfas for treatment. Vicki

    Albon or Di-Methox 12.5 % per Kaye

    (Albon 12.5% (sulfadimethoxine) dose of 75mg/kg equals 1.6cc per 5#'s of kid. )

    and don't reduce down

    Well crap, and I thought I was doing it right all the time. So with the Dimethox 12.5% I use 1.6 cc per 5lbs of body for 5 days with going down by half. And with the 40% I use 1cc per 10lbs for 5 days with reducing by half. Just making sure I have this correct.

    Thanks
    Autumn

    The dose for the 12.5% is 1.6cc per 5# for 5 days. Do not cut in half.

    Kaye and I spent the better part of a day figuring this dose out and making sure we got it right. :)
