Product description

GentaMed is a soluble powder for use in swine drinking water only.

Active ingredients

Each g of GentaMed contains:

  • Gentamicin sulfate equivalent to 333.33 mg (gentamicin base)

Indications for use

  • GentaMed soluble powder is recommended for the control and treatment of colibacillosis in weanling swine caused by strains of E. coli sensitive to gentamicin and for the control and treatment of swine dysentery associated with Treponema hyodysenteriae.

Administration and dosage

  • GentaMed Soluble Powder is available in a 360 gram jar. The 360 gram jar contains a scoop that provides approximately 18 grams of product when level full.

  • For Control and treatment of Colibacillosis-Administer GentaMed Soluble Powder in drinking water at the recommended level of 25 mg per gallon (1 scoop/240 gallons) for three consecutive days.

  • For Control and treatment of Swine Dysentery-Administer GentaMed™ Soluble Powder in drinking water at the recommended level of 50 mg per gallon (1 scoop/120 gallons) for three consecutive days.

  • The concentration of the medication should be adjusted in extremely hot or cold weather to ensure a gentamicin dosage of approximately 0.5 mg/lb/day for 3 days for colibacillosis or 1.0 mg/lb/day for 3 days for swine dysentery. A 50-lb pig will, under average conditions, consume 0.9 gallons of water per day.

  • For swine dysentery, if the condition recurs, the medication may be repeated. Because of the tendency for the disease to recur on a premise with a history of swine dysentery, a control program should be used following treatment.

Directions for use:

  • To prepare medicated water, mix GentaMed™ Soluble Powder and drinking water according to the following tables:

  • For Control and Treatment of Swine Dysentery

Add 18 g (1 scoop) GentaMed™ Soluble Powder to 1 gallon of water to make stock solution and dispense at the rate of one ounce per gallon of drinking water. This will result in drinking water that contains 50 mg/gallon.

Medicated drinking water should not be stored or offered in rusty containers since the drug is quickly destroyed in such containers.

Medicated water should be prepared daily and be the sole source of drinking water for 3 consecutive days.

The daily water consumption figures shown below are approximations for mild temperatures and are presented as a guide only. Actual water consumption varies with environmental temperature, humidity, and diet.
