The product is given by oral administration at a rate of 75 mg per kg bodyweight of fish daily for initially 4 days. After the initial treatment, mortality should be assessed and a further 4 day treatment course should be administered if necessary.
Rotet 100® is for administration only through the feed by mixing with manufactured feed prior to feeding. Feeding rates will vary according to water temperature and it may therefore be more convenient to medicate on the basis of a fixed rate e.g. 1% of bodyweight, with the extra daily feed requirement being met by unmedicated food. The following inclusion rates will provide the recommended dose:
|Powder inclusion rate|
|Daily feed percentage amount based on bodyweight||per 5 kg of feed||per 25 kg of feed||per ton of feed|
|0.5||75 g||375 g||15 kg|
|1||37.5 g||187.5 g||7.5 kg|
|2||18.75 g||93.75 g||3.75 kg|
