    This bolus may be divided for better approximation of the correct dose; however, care should be taken not to crush the bolus. Care should also be taken to ensure the entire dose has been swallowed by the animal. Observe animals following the administration to ensure boluses are not regurgitated. Lubricate bolus before dosing animals.

    Sustain III® Calf Boluses are designed to provide a therapeutic sulfamethazine level in approximately 6 hours, and persist in providing this level for 72 hours (3 days). After 72 hours, all animals should be re-examined for persistence of observable disease signs. If signs are present, consult a veterinarian. It is strongly recommended that a second dose be given to provide an additional 72 hours of therapy, particularly in those more severe cases. The above schedule should be used at each 72-hour interval.

    CAUTION: This drug, like all sulfonamides, may cause toxic reactions and irreparable injury unless administered with adequate and continuous supervision. Follow recommended dosages carefully. Fluid intake must be adequate at all times throughout the three-day therapy provided by the sustained release bolus. This product has not been shown to be effective for non-ruminating calves.

    Store at 20°C - 25°C (68°F - 77°F), with excursions permitted to 15°C - 30°C (59°F - 86°F).
