Zinc 50 - Liquid Zinc Oxide
A ready to use liquid susupension of zinc oxide suitable for supplementation and facial eczema protection.
Zinc 50 is a suspension of zinc oxide that is suitable for facial eczema protection and control in addition to use as a general zinc supplement.
It can be used in troughs and water lines or drenched "as is"
Zinc 50 contains 500grams high purity zinc oxide BP per litre, with natural stabilisers and suspending agents plus an apple flavour.
The general dosage is 3mls per 50kg liveweight per day.
Treatment should start at 20% of the total daily requirement and gradually increase to the required total daily dose over 10 - 14 days.
Dosing should start 2 - 3 weeks before the first danger from facial eczema spores is expected and continue until pasture is considered safe.
Ideally, cattle should be treated daily as high levels of zinc can cause a drop in milk production, and in some animals depress blood calcium concentration resulting in out of season milk fever.
Shake well to agitate suspension before use.
Zinc is a potentially toxic element. The dosage levels that are effective in preventing eczema are safe, but have a margin of safety of only approximately 3 times the effective crisis dose.
High and prolonged administration of zinc can suppress the selenium and copper levels in some animals. Please consult your veterinarian if in doubt.
