For feed manufacturers
Add and thoroughly mix into the ration at the following rate to provide 42.5 mg/kg (0.00425%) tylvalosin per metric tonne (1000 kg) of finished (complete) feed:
- 0.25 kg (250 g) Aivlosin 17% Tylvalosin Medicated Premix
To aid in the even distribution of drug in the finished feed, add full amount of Aivlosin 17% into a small portion of the feed (at least 10 kg per tonne of finished feed) and mix. Blend this mixture into the remainder of the feed and mix thoroughly.
- No withdrawal period is required when this medicated feed is fed at the recommended level of 42.5 mg/kg (0.00425%) tylvalosin in the complete feed.
- Tylvalosin has been shown to cause hypersensitivity reactions in laboratory animals; therefore, people with known hypersensitivity to tylvalosin tartrate should avoid contact with this product. When mixing and handling tylvalosin, avoid inhalation, oral exposure and direct contact with skin or eyes. (Required on premix and supplement labels only)
- Keep out of reach of children. (Required on premix and supplement labels only)
- Not for use in breeding animals.
- The effects of tylvalosin on male and female reproductive performance, including pregnancy and lactation, have not been determined.
- Do not use in feeds containing pellet binding agents with the exception of Lignosol (4%) and Agri-Colloid (0.3%). (Required on premix and supplement labels only)
- Do not use in feeds containing bentonite. (Required on premix and supplement labels only)
- Acute cases and severely diseased pigs with reduced food and water intake should be treated with a suitable injectable product.
- It is sound clinical practice to base treatment on susceptibility testing of the bacteria isolated from the animal. If this is not possible, therapy should be based on local (regional, farm level) epidemiological information about susceptibility of target bacteria.
- Use of the product deviating from the instructions may increase the risk of development and selection of resistant bacteria and decrease the effectiveness of treatment with other macrolides due to the potential for cross-resistance.
