SWINE: Directions for Use

INDICATIONS: LINCOSOL Soluble Powder is indicated for the treatment of swine dysentery (bloody scours).

DOSAGE: Administer at a dose rate of 250 mg of lincomycin per gallon of drinking water. In clinical studies, this dose rate provided an average of 3.8 mg of lincomycin per pound of body weight per day.

TREATMENT PERIOD: The drug should be administered for a maximum of 5 consecutive days beyond the disappearance of symptoms (bloody stools) up to a maximum of 10 consecutive days. If water treatment is discontinued prior to this time, a lincomycin treatment program may be continued with lincomycin premix at 100 grams lincomycin per ton of complete feed as a sole ration according to label directions.

 

ADMINISTRATION: One scoop (provided) of this powder will medicate 64 gallons of drinking water providing 250 mg/gallon. A dose of 3.8 mg lincomycin per pound of body weight my be maintained by medicating the drinking water at a concentration of 250 mg per gallon of drinking water when pigs are consuming 1.5 gallons per 100 lbs. of body weight per day. Under these circumstances the concentration of lincomycin required in medicated water may be adjusted to compensate for variations in age and weight of animals, the nature and severity of disease symptoms, environmental temperature and humidity, each of which affect water consumption.

For use in automatic proportioners, prepare the stock solution by dissolving two scoops in one gallon of water, then adjust the proportioner to deliver 1 ounce of stock solution per gallon of drinking water.

NOTE: After a treatment program is discontinued, a control program for swine dysentery may be followed by feeding lincomycin premix at 40 grams lincomycin per ton of complete feed as the sole ration.
