Dose rate: 50mg/kg twice daily for 7 days. Therefore: Antibiotic l = 1ml/kg twice dailyi/m or s/c for 7 days, Oxytetracycline injectable & oral preparations s = 1 tablet/kg twice daily orally for 7 days, s = half a tablet/kg twice daily orally for 7 days. Dose rate: 40mg/kg daily for 5-10 days.

Mix 1:50 with water e.g. 5mls Imaverol to 250mls water (or 1ml Imaverol to 50mls water). Spray well & allow to ‘drip dry’. Spray every 3 days until the hog Enilconazole Antifungal has had 4 sprays. Keep in warm during treatment. Mixture will keep for 6 weeks. Small handheld houseplant sprayers are ideal for this. Itraconazole 1.5mls/kg daily orally for 7 days, Antifungal (1% = 10mgs/ml) repeat after a 7 day break. Ivermectin 0.4ml/kg - 3 inj, s/c each 1 week apart. Wormer / parasites (not tapeworms) (1% = 10mgs/ml) : 1-3 drops dep. on size directly onto skin on back of neck.

Wormer (lungworm) (75mgs/ml) Repeat this from Day 13. Dose rate: 8mgs/kg daily for at least 7 days. Therefore: MARBOCYL Marbofloxacin Antibiotic = 0.8ml/kg daily s/c for at least 7 days, MARBOCYL = 0.4ml/kg daily s/c for at least 7 days. Dose rate: 0.5mg/kg for up to 3 days.

Dose rate: 50mg/kg twice daily. Therefore: Cardiac & respiratory stimulant b e = 0.35mls/kg twice daily i/m or s/c, Etamiphylline injectable & oral preparations s = half a tablet/kg twice daily orally, = a quarter of a tablet/kg twice daily orally. 100mg/kg daily for s Therefore: s e = 2 graduations/kg orally, Fenbendazole Anthelmintic (wormer) n = 1ml/kg orally, n = 4mls/kg orally. Dose rate: 5mg/kg daily for up to 3 days. Therefore: Carprofen Non-steroidal analgesic / anti-inflammatory = 0.1mls/kg daily i/m, s/c or i/v, NOROCARP (50mgs/ml) injectable & oral preparations e s = quarter of a tablet/kg daily orally. DO NOT USE IF CORTICOSTEROID GIVEN Dose rate: 100mg/kg daily for at least 7 days.
