Residue Warnings:
Do not medicate chickens or turkeys producing eggs for human consumption. To avoid drug residue in edible flesh--withdraw medication from chickens and turkeys 10 days prior to slaughter for food.

Treated cattle must not be slaughtered for at least 10 days after the last dose. Exceeding 5 consecutive days of treatment may cause violative tissue residue to remain beyond the withdrawal time. Do not use in calves under 1 month of age or calves being fed an all-milk diet. Use in these classes of calves may cause violative residues to remain beyond the withdrawal time. Do not use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older. Use of sulfamethazine in this class of cattle may cause milk residue.

Withdrawal medication from swine 15 days prior to slaughter for food.

For best advice in control and treatment of animal disease, consult a veterinarian. Have only medicated water available during treatment and check carefully to insure adequate Sulmet dosage and water intake. Cattle and calves not drinking or eating must be dosed by drench or with Sulmet Oblets. For beset results, treat sick animals individually.

In poultry, consult a veterinarian or poultry pathologist for diagnosis. For control of outbreaks of disease, medication should be initiated as soon as the diagnosis is determined.

Medicated cattle, swine, chicken and turkeys must actually consume enough medicated water which provides the recommended dosage.

Excessive dosage may cause toxic reactions; follow dosage and administration instructions carefully.
