Baycox does not interfere with the development of immunity against coccidiosis. As with all anticoccidials, prolonged use may result in the development of resistant strains. Dilutions more concentrated than 1 ml Baycox 2.5% to 1 litre drinking water may result in precipitation. Predilution is not recommended. Baycox is compatible with coccidiostats and amoebostats. A three - five fold overdosage is readily tolerated without any symptoms. If the recommended dose is exceeded beyond 3 - 5 times there is a decrease in water intake.
Baycox is an alkaline solution. Wear synthetic rubber gloves when handling the product. Wash any splashes from skin and eyes immediately with water. Wash hands and exposed skin after use.
