Dosage and administration
The ready-to-use oral suspension must be shaken before use.
Piglets: Individual animal treatment. Each pig to be treated on day 3-5 of life with a single oral dose of 20 mg toltrazuril/kg body weight corresponding to 0.4 ml oral suspension per kg body weight. Due to the small volumes required to treat individual piglets, use of dosing equipment with a dose accuracy of 0.1 ml is recommended. Treatment during an outbreak will be of limited value for the individual piglet because of damage to the small intestine having already occurred.
Calves: Each animal should be treated with a single oral dose of 15 mg toltrazuril/kg body weight corresponding to 3.0 ml oral suspension per 10 kg body weight.
For the treatment of a group of animals of the same breed and same or similar age, the dosing should be done according to the heaviest animal of this group.
To obtain maximum benefit, animals should be treated before the expected onset of clinical signs, i.e. in the prepatent period.
Lambs: Each animal should be treated with a single oral dose of 20 mg toltrazuril/kg body weight corresponding to 0.4 ml oral suspension per kg body weight. To obtain maximum benefit, animals should be treated before the expected onset of clinical signs, i.e. in the prepatent period.
If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their body weight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under- or over-dosing.
Use during pregnancy and lactation
Laboratory studies in rat and rabbit have not produced any evidence of a teratogenic, foetotoxic or maternotoxic effect.
