Di-Methox (SulfaMed) 40% Sulfadimethoxine InjectionSulfaMed Di-Methox injectable contains 400 mg sulfadimethoxine per mL*.
Di-Methox is a rapidly absorbed and long-lasting sulfonamide used for the treatment of bacterial pneumonia, shipping fever complex, calf diphtheria, foot rot, and bovine respiratory complex.
Sulfadimethoxine is a white, almost tasteless and odorless compound. Sulfadimethoxine has been tested in the laboratory and demonstrated clinically to be effective against a variety of organisms, such as salmonella, streptococci, klebsiella, proteus, shigella, staphylococci and escherichia. To ensure successful treatment, the drug must be given early in the course of the disease, produce a high sulfonamide level in the body shortly after administration, and retain that high level throughout the course of the treatment. The treatment should continue for a short period of time after symptoms have disappeared.

"Helped my kids grow"
I didn't realize I had a coccidia problem because my goat kids never came down sick. However, the difference in rate of growth from when I didn't use this stuff to when I did was phenomenal! My dairy goat kids were reaching 80 lbs by 4 months of age!
