RESIDUE WARNING: For use in swine drinking water only. Swine treated with the recommended dose of GentaMed™ Soluble Powder must not be slaughtered for food for at least ten (10) days following the last treatment.

INDICATIONS: GentaMed™ Soluble Powder is recommended for the control and treatment of colibacillosis in weanling swine caused by strains of E. coli sensitive to gentamicin and for the control and treatment of swine dysentery associated with Brachyspira hyodysenteriae.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:

GentaMed Soluble Powder is available in a 360 gram jar. The 360 gram jar contains a scoop that provides approximately 18 grams of product when level full.

For Control and treatment of Colibacillosis-Administer GentaMed Soluble Powder in drinking water at the recommended level of 25 mg per gallon (1 scoop/240 gallons) for three consecutive days.

For Control and treatment of Swine Dysentery-Administer GentaMed Soluble Powder in drinking water at the recommended level of 50 mg per gallon (1 scoop/120 gallons) for three consecutive days.

The concentration of the medication should be adjusted in extremely hot or cold weather to ensure a gentamicin dosage of approximately 0.5 mg/lb/day for 3 days for colibacillosis or 1.0 mg/lb/day for 3 days for swine dysentery. A 50-lb pig will, under average conditions, consume 0.9 gallons of water per day.

For swine dysentery, if the condition recurs, the medication may be repeated. Because of the tendency for the disease to recur on a premise with a history of swine dysentery, a control program should be used following treatment.
