Tiamin is indicated for the treatment of bacterial and mycoplasmal infections caused by tiamulin sensitive organisms involving the intestinal, respiratory tracts and joints in chickens and turkeys . The following organisms show sensitivity to tiamulin :

Brachyspira: Brachyspira hyodysenteriae, Brachyspira pilosicoli

Mycoplasmas: Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, M.hyorhinis, M. hyosynoviae, Ureaplasma spp.M. gallisepticum, M. synoviae and M. meleagridis

Gram-positive: Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Arcanobacterium pyogenes

Gram-negative: Pasteurella spp., Klebsiella pneumoniae, Actinobacillus (Haemophilus) spp., Flusobacterium necrophorum, Bacteroides spp., Campylobacter coli, Lawsonia intracellularis

Administered Via oral route

 

Chickens: The dosage for chickens is 25 mg of active substance/kg bodyweight (equivalent to 100 ml of Tiamin/500 kg bodyweight). Tiamulin should be administered continuously at a level of 0.025% (250 ppm) in drinking water (2 ml product per litre of water) for 3 – 5 days and will provide approximately the following daily dosage of tiamulin depending on the age of the bird:

- Day old chick: 125 – 150 mg active ingredient/kg bodyweight

- 4 week old broiler: 30 – 50 mg active ingredient/kg bodyweight

- 10 week old pullet: 30 – 45 mg active ingredient/kg bodyweight

- Layer: 25 mg active ingredient /kg bodyweight

 

Turkeys: The dosage for turkeys is 25 mg of active substance / kg bodyweight (equivalent to 100 ml of Tiamin/500 kg bodyweight). Tiamulin should be administered continuously at a level of 0.025% (250 ppm) tiamulin in the drinking water (2 ml product per litre of water) for 5 days and will provide approximately the following daily dosage of tiamulin depending on the age of the bird:

- 1 week old poultry: 70 mg active ingredient/kg bodyweight

- 4 week old poultry: 50 mg active ingredient/kg bodyweight

- 8 week old poultry: 25 – 30 mg active ingredient/kg bodyweight

- 20 week old poultry: 25 mg active ingredient/kg bodyweight

Monitor water intake at frequent intervals during medication.

Fresh solutions of tiamulin-medicated drinking water should be made up each day.

-  Do not use in animals hypersensitive to the active ingredient.

-  Birds should not receive products containing monensin, narasin or salinomycin during or for at least seven days before or after treatment this may lead  to a mild to moderate growth depression in chickens. The situation is transient   and recovery normally occurs within 3 – 5 days following withdrawal of tiamulin treatment. This does not seem to occur with the ionophores lasalocid or semduramicin.

-  Chickens shouldn't be slaughtered during treatment and within 2 days from the last treatment.

-  Turkeys shouldn't be slaughtered during treatment and within 5 days from the last treatment.

-  No withdrawal period for eggs.

Store in a dark and dry place below 25 ˚C, don’t refrigerate.
