Tetsol 800 (80% w/w) Powder for Oral solution.
A yellow water-soluble powder containing 800 g tetracycline hydrochloride per kg.
Tetsol 800 is indicated for the treatment of diseases caused by Clostridium perfringens in chickens and those caused by Actinobacillus (Haemophilus) pleuropneumoniae in pigs.
For administration in drinking water for up to 5 days. Allow birds and animals access to medicated water only during treatment. Medicated water should be prepared daily, and any medicated water which is not consumed within 24 hours should be discarded.
Use 1 sachet (125 g) Tetsol 800 to medicate 180 litres of water, providing 100 g of active ingredient per 180 litres. This is approximately equivalent to 60 mg tetracycline hydrochloride/kg bodyweight daily.
This dosage may be achieved by using the scoop supplied which when levelled, delivers 50 g product. Use one scoop to medicate 72 litres of water, providing 1 g of active ingredient per 1.8 litres.
To obtain the number of scoops needed to medicate a flock of chickens, take the total bodyweight in kg, multiply by 75/1000 to obtain the amount of product in grams and then divide by 50 for the number of scoops needed.
For example 10,000 kg x 75/1000 = 750, then ÷ 50 = 15 scoops.
Use 1 sachet (125 g) Tetsol 800 to medicate 300 litres of water, providing 100 g of active ingredient per 300 litres. This is approximately equivalent to 40 mg tetracycline hydrochloride/kg bodyweight daily.
This dosage may be achieved by using the scoop supplied which, when levelled, delivers 50 g of product. Use one scoop to medicate 120 litres of water, providing 1 g of active ingredient per 3 litres.
Number of level scoops daily=
No. of pigs×Average Wt. (Kg)
For example, 50 pigs with an average weight of 20 kg:
Number of level scoops daily=
1 scoop per day, which should be added to 120 litres of water
The daily dose may be given in concentrations of up to 125 g Tetsol 800 per 100 litres water.
