    This bolus may be divided for a better approximation of 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 administration to ensure boluses are not regurgitated. Lubricate Sustain III® before dosing animals.

    Sustain III® 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 your veterinarian. It is strongly recommended that a second dose be given to provide for an additional 72 hours of therapy, particularly in those more severe cases. The dose schedule should be used at each 72-hour interval.

    Fluid intake must be adequate at all times throughout the three-day therapy provided by the sustained release bolus.

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