Indication:
Aids in prevention and treatment of milk fever (hypocalcaemia) in cows. Also as a calcium supplement when deficiency of dietary calcium may occur.

For oral use in cattle only. Direct the neck of the bottle over the tongue towards the back of the throat. Slowly squeeze the bottle to assist swallowing. Avoid accidental administration into the windpipe and lungs.
