DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Bulk Tank: To treat pigs drinking 10% of their bodyweight, at the dose of 10mg/kg: add AbbeyFlor™ ORAL FOR PIGS to drinking water in the bulk tank. Use one 2.2L bottle of AbbeyFlor™ ORAL FOR PIGS for every 500 L of water. This corresponds to a 100ppm drinking water concentration.

Proportioner: Two convenient proportioner settings for the use of AbbeyFlor™ ORAL FOR PIGS in drinking water are 10% and 1%.

10% setting: To treat 5000 kg of pigs, drinking 10% of their bodyweight, at the dose of 10 mg/kg, empty the contents of one 2.2L bottle of AbbeyFlor™ ORAL FOR PIGS into the proportioner and
make up to 50 L with drinking water and mix thoroughly. Set the proportioner on 10%. Turn on the proportioner and verify that the drinkers are operational.

1% setting: To treat 5000 kg of pigs, drinking 8% of their bodyweight, at the dose of 10 mg/kg, empty the contents of one 2.2L bottle of AbbeyFlor™ ORAL FOR PIGS into the proportioner and make up to 4L with drinking water and mix thoroughly. Set the proportioner on 1%. Turn on the proportioner and verify that the drinkers are operational. The medicated water should be administered as the only source of drinking water of 5 consecutive days. Medication should be initiated promptly when swine respiratory disease is diagnosed. Do not use this product differently than as described above. This may result in a precipitation of the product. Solutions prepared by diluting drinking water containing Florfenicol concentrate at concentrations between 1.2g and 12g of Florfenicol per litre will precipitate.
