Contains: 12.5g Zinc Oxide TS-99* per 100g NRM Zinc Mineral Mix dose, (125g per 1kg Zinc Oxide TS-99). Zinc Oxide TS-99 is registered pursuant to the ACVM Act 1997, No. A010933. See www.foodsafety.govt.nz for registration conditions.

By law the user must take due care, obtaining expert advice, when necessary, to avoid unnecessary pain and distress when using the product other than as directed on the label.
Indications: An aid in the prevention of facial eczema in sheep and cattle.
Feed inclusion: Include with supplementary feed, mixing well, to provide a daily dose of 2.5g Zinc Oxide TS-99/100kg liveweight. Read the Feed Certificate accompanying each load to confirm inclusion level and feeding rate.
Directions for use: Recommended dose rates should be followed closely. For best protection, start Zinc Oxide TS-99 administration in feed at least 2 weeks before Facial Eczema conditions normally occur. Continue until cooler winter conditions.
Where spore counts are already high, drenching with Zinc at crisis dose rates is recommended. Please contact your local veterinary practitioner or animal health advisor for further advice. In high-risk situations, delivering zinc by multiple routes may be beneficial.
Warning: Zinc may be toxic to stock at higher than recommended levels. In cattle, the maximum recommended continuous zinc supplementation is 100 days. The recommended long term supplementation rate is 2.5g zinc oxide/100kg liveweight. Blood tests may help confirm if protection has been effective or needs to be reduced.
Environmental Protection: Zinc Oxide TS-99 is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Avoid contamination of any water supply with product or empty container. Harmful to terrestrial vertebrates. Avoid release to the environment.
Contraindications: Too much zinc can lead to pancreatic disease and copper deficiency. Zinc interferes with copper uptake from the gut, but excess copper supplementation may reduce the effectiveness of zinc to prevent facial eczema. In copper and selenium deficient areas, supplement with these after the zinc program—but not during it unless there are clinical deficiencies. If symptoms persist, owners are advised to seek advice from a local veterinarian.
