(sulfadimethoxine)

INDICATIONS FOR USE: Albon is effective in the treatment of shipping fever complex and bacterial pneumonia associated with Pasteurella spp. sensitive to sulfadimethoxine; and calf diphtheria and foot rot associated with Fusobacterium necrophorum (Sphaerophorus necrophorus) sensitive to sulfadimethoxine in cattle.

Restricted Drug (California)--Use Only As Directed

DESCRIPTION:Albon is a low-dose, rapidly absorbed, long-acting sulfonamide.

ACTIONS: Sulfadimethoxine has been demonstrated in laboratory studies to be effective against a wide variety of organisms, such as streptococci, staphylococci and members of the E. coli-salmonella group of bacteria.

Comparatively low doses of Albon give rapid, sustained blood levels required for effective disease therapy.

TOXICITY AND SAFETY: Albon has been shown to be a well-tolerated sulfonamide with relatively high solubility at the pH normally occurring in the kidney and with a low degree of toxicity. Following the administration of Albon at the recommended dosage, no undesirable side effects have been observed.

DOSAGE: Albon should be administered to cattle so that the initial dose is equivalent to 25 mg/lb of body weight and each subsequent daily dose is equivalent to 12.5 mg/lb of body weight. Length of treatment will depend on clinical response. In most cases, treatment for 3-4 days is adequate. Treatment should not be continued beyond 5 days.
