Do you usually give two treatments?
Why is it recommended over some of the newer meds?

Steve - I generally use 300. Would have to check bottle, but think good for 3-4 days. Pinkeye - I treat once, put a patch (old genes). don't treat again. Leave patch on til it falls off.
Footrot - clean foot, drench foot with coppertox, LA300 - never have re-treated
Some antibiotics are gram-neg - some gram-pos. Don't know which is which, but LA200-300 treats infections of extremities - definitely not good for respiratory diseases.

Hubby was the "in-house vet", I never memorized the what & why's, just know what works.
