Neomix® 325 Soluble Powder

This page contains the ingredients, directions and information of a certain "drug" that we use as an aid in the treatment and control of colibacillosis (bacterial enteritis) caused by Escherichia coli. This information is taken directly from the product label. Please note, that the author is not a veterinarian or specialist in the medical needs for goats. This information is posted for your reference and comparison purposes only.

For the treatment and control of colibacillosis (bacterial enteritis) caused by Escherichia coli susceptible to neomycin sulfate in cattle, swine, sheep and goats. Neomycin sulfate (commercial grade). Each packet contains 71.5 gm neomycin sulfate (commercial grade) equivalent to 50 gm neomycin.

Administer to cattle, swine, sheep and goats at a dose of 10 mg neomycin sulfate per pound of body weight per day in divided doses for a maximum of 14 days.

Each packet will treat 7,150 pounds body weight. Therefore, estimate the total number of pounds of body weight of the animals to be treated and adminster one (1) packet (or portion thereof) for each 7,150 pounds. The product should be added to the amount of drinking water estimated to be consumed in 12-24 hours. Provide medicated water as the sole source of water each day until consumed, followed by non-medicated water as required. Fresh medicated water should be prepared each day.

To provide 10 mg neomycin sulfate per pound of body weight, mix one (1) level teaspoon in water or milk for each 160 pounds body weight. Administer daily either as a drench in divided doses or in the drinking water to be consumed in 12-24 hours.

Use the number of packets indicated below in 256 gallons of water, or in two gallons of stock solution used in proportioners set to meter one ounce per gallon.

Pigs weighing 25 to 50 Pounds 2 Packets
Pigs weighing 50 to 100 Pounds 3 Packets
Pigs weighing over 100 Pounds 4 Packets

To administer the stated dosage, the concentration of neomycin required in medicated water must be adjusted to compensate for variation in age and weight of animal, the nature and severity of disease signs, and environmental temperature and humidity; each of which affects water consumption.

If symptoms persist after using this preparation for 2 to 3 days, consult a veterinarian. If symptoms such as fever, depression, or going off feed develop, oral neomycin is not indicated as the sole treatment since systemic levels of neomycin are not obtained due to low absorption from the gastrointestinal tract.

Treatment should continue 24 to 48 hours beyond remission of disease symptoms, but not to exceed a total of 14 consecutive days. Animals not drinking or eating should be treated individually by drench.

Restricted Drug - Use Only As Directed (California). Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children. Store at room temperature. Discontinue treatment prior to slaughter by at least the number of days listed below for the appropriate species:
