For mass treatment, we recommend the correct calculation of total body weight and quantity of product to be administered.

Medicated drinking water should be freshly prepared every 12 hours. To ensure a proper dose, the exact body weight will be determined to avoid underdosing or overdosing.

The consumption of medicated water depends on the clinical condition of the animals. In order to obtain a correct dose, the amoxicillin concentration should be adjusted accordingly.

WARNINGS/ADVICE ON CORRECT ADMINISTRATION

Water consumption should be monitored to ensure adequate dose. If the water consumption does not correspond to the quantities for which the recommended concentrations have been calculated, the AMOXICRID 60% concentration should be adjusted so that the animals assimilate the recommended dose.
