Instructions for use

Scourproof® Extra is for oral administration only. There are two suggested protocols that can be followed depending on the calf; either continue with the usual diet alongside the administration of Scourproof® Extra between feeds or cease the usual diet during administration.

Prepare a fresh solution by mixing the contents of one sachet thoroughly with 1.5 litres of warm (40°C) water. Two subsequent administrations should be given at 12-hour intervals. A final administration comprising ½ sachet sachet dissolved in 0.75 litre warm water and 0.75 litre warm milk should be given after a further 12 hours.

If more frequent administration is required, then 1 sachet in 1.5 litres warm water should be given every 8 hours on six occasions. A final administration comprising ½ sachet dissolved in 0.75 litre warm water and 0.75 litre warm milk may be given 8 hours later if necessary.

Stomach Tubes

Scourproof® Extra can be given by stomach tube. If it is administered this way, use the solution as soon as it has been mixed because it forms a semi-solid viscous solution over time. It is ideal to mix the solution as close as possible to the calf for quicker administration if giving via a stomach tube.


Scourproof® Extra is designed to form a thick, viscous solution when added to water. Empty the contents of the Scourproof® Extra sachet first, then add water to it. It can easily be administered from a semi-rigid bottle fitted with a rubber teat. Store in a dry place below 25°C. Keep out of the reach of children. For animal use only. This is not a veterinary medicine which is subject to authorisation by the Irish Medicines Board.
