Cattle: 1 ml/10 kg body mass. Intramuscular injection should be made deep into the fleshy part of the muscle.
To minimize local tissue irritation, no more than 10 ml should be injected at any one site.
Swine: In pigs, weighing up to 10 kg, administer 1 ml subcutaneously behind the ear. In pigs weighing in excess of 10 kg, administer 1 ml/10 kg body mass by intramuscular injection at one site. In swine over 100 kg, it is recommended that the dose be divided and administered into two injection sites.
