Dosage

Baycox is mixed in the drinking water before use. Gentle mixing is required. Proportioning systems may be used.

The recommended dose rate is 7 mg toltrazuril per kg bodyweight per day given for 2 consecutive days. This corresponds to:

28 ml Baycox 2.5% Solution per 100 kg of bodyweight per day for 2 consecutive days.

As a guide for usage this is normally equivalent to 1 ml Baycox 2.5% Solution per litre of drinking water for continuous medication over 48 hours, or 3 ml Baycox 2.5% per litre of drinking water given for 8 hours per day, on 2 consecutive days.

Chicken: One medication period (over 2 days).

Only make up sufficient drinking water for requirements.

After calculations of the required amount of product, this volume should be carefully dispensed from the container into a domestic measuring jug reserved and labelled specifically for the purpose. Measurement must be made carefully to ensure correct dosage. Product must not be stored in the jug.

Withdrawal Period

Meat: 18 days

Do not use in birds producing eggs for human consumption.

Contra Indications

Baycox does not interfere with the development of immunity against coccidiosis. As with all anticoccidials, prolonged use may result in the development of resistant strains. Dilutions more concentrated than 1 ml Baycox 2.5% to 1 litre drinking water may result in precipitation. Predilution is not recommended. Baycox is compatible with coccidiostats and amoebostats. A three - five fold overdosage is readily tolerated without any symptoms. If the recommended dose is exceeded beyond 3 - 5 times there is a decrease in water intake.

User Safety

Baycox is an alkaline solution. Wear synthetic rubber gloves when handling the product. Wash any splashes from skin and eyes immediately with water. Wash hands and exposed skin after use.

Environmental Safety

Only make up sufficient drinking water for requirements. Wash out empty container with water 3 times when medicating birds and add washings to drinking water.

Store litter from treated houses as long as possible. However, it should only be stored where there is no risk of polluting surface water or groundwater. Do not apply to agricultural land at a rate greater than 1.5 tonnes/hectare/year. If spreading within an NVZ ensure that the NVZ action program rules are complied with.

The principle metabolite of toltrazuril is persistent and mobile in groundwater.

Following dilution in the drinking water Baycox is stable for 24 hours. Any medicated water which is not consumed within 24 hours should be discarded safely.
