    They specifically warned not to use this product in egg layers or in milkers. Most likely because they havent tested for withdrawal periods or possibly because they have tested and the antibiotic stays in the eggs or milk for a long time.

    Call the Pharmaceutical company on Monday and ask to speak to their lab vet and ask for the withdrawal time for eating eggs. They may not be willing to give you the information. If not, have your vet call.... they will give the information to him.

    I have been told by pharmaceutical companies anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months!
