Pre-stabilised zinc oxide powder for the prevention of facial eczema in cattle and sheep by oral drenching or addition to supplementary feed.
Drenching can either be at long-term rates (ranging from daily to weekly) or crisis rates (daily) depending on spore count.
Can also be used as a dietary zinc supplement
Facial Eczema Prevention
Zinc Oxide Plus is usually administered as an oral drench, although the same dose can be added to supplementary feeds or sprayed on the pasture.
Addition to supplementary feed: Mix properly into supplementary feed to deliver 2.5g Zinc Oxide Plus powder per 100kg live-weight per day.
Pasture spraying: Suspend Zinc Oxide Plus in a suitable quantity of water so that pasture can be sprayed ahead of the grazing animals. Application rate (per day) is 3 - 6 grams per 100kg live-weight per day depending on percentage pasture utilisation.
Oral drenching: Mix 1kg Zinc Oxide Plus with 1 litre water and stir well. This produces approximately 1.2 litres of drench. If drenching is started at least 2 weeks before the spore counts reach danger levels, the long-term dosing rate should be used to gradually build up zinc levels in the animals. However if drenching is started once spore counts are already high or animals are showing symptoms of facial eczema, the crisis dosing rate should be used.
Dietary Zinc Supplement
Usually used at low rates, eg 0.25-0.5g/cow/day. It can be administered by oral drenching or added to supplementary feed.
• Is insoluble in water so cannot be administered through the water supply. It can be suspended in water to form a drench but will settle out so constant agitation is required.
