Dosage recommendation

2 Calcitop boluses 12 to 24 hours before calving (42 g /Calcium) or, 1 bolus prior to calving and another bolus immediately after calving if required.

Do not attempt to administer a bolus to a “down cow” as she will not have the ability to swallow. In this instance it is recommended you use the AHD Metaboost or BlueCross CBG 40% Metabolic injection.

Magnesium 1.5mg 0.45mg
Vitamin D3 34,000 IU 5,000 iu

1 X 500 ml bottle of Pro Cal Oral is common practise after a CBG or 4 I n1 metabolic treatment

1 x dose of 2 Calcitop boluses would do the same but offer more phosphorus, magnesium and Vitamin D3

CalciTop contains Dicalcium phosphate

Oral Gels contain Calcium Chloride, known to be an irritant and prolonged use can cause ulcers

2 Calcitop boluses (one recommended treatment) will cost $15.74, (suggested retail) very comparable to calcium oral get treatments
