Legal Category: POM-V


The dosage is 10 ml solution per 142 kg body weight, administered in the drinking water of pigs for 3 to 5 days, depending on the severity of the infection and/or the duration of the disease. To ensure an intake of 8.8 mg/kg daily it is important to know the weight of the animals to be treated and to measure accurately their drinking water consumption. Administer the calculated dose (based on the animals’ weight) in approximately one half of the daily water requirements, to ensure consumption of the correct dose. Unmedicated water should then be provided each day after the medicated water has been consumed. Where a water medicator is used the appropriate stock solution should be made up according to the makers’ instructions. Any medicated water not consumed within 24 hours should be discarded. If there is no response to treatment within 5 days, the diagnosis should be re-established. Additionally, water intake levels should be monitored at frequent intervals during medication. Fresh solutions of Tiamvet-medicated drinking water should be made up each day.

Withdrawal Period

Pigs (meat and offal): 2 days.

Contra Indications

Do not administer products containing monensin, salinomycin or narasin during or for at least 7 days before or after treatment. Severe growth depression or death may result.

Official, national and regional antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when the product is used.

In order to avoid interactions between tiamulin and the incompatible ionophores monensin, narasin and salinomycin, the feed mill supplying the feed should be notified that tiamulin will be used and that these products should not be included in the feed or contaminate the feed.

The feed should be tested for the ionophores prior to use if there is any suspicion that contamination of the feed might occur. If an interaction does occur, stop tiamulin water medication immediately and replace with fresh water. Remove contaminated feed as soon as possible and replace with feed not containing the tiamulin-incompatible ionophores.

On rare occasions erythema or mild oedema of the skin may occur in pigs following the use of tiamulin hydrogen fumarate.

The product can be used in pregnant and lactating pigs.

There is a relatively high therapeutic index with tiamulin and the likelihood of an overdose is considered remote, especially as water intake and hence tiamulin intake is reduced if abnormally high concentrations are given.

If signs of intoxication do occur, promptly remove the medicated water and replace with fresh water.
