I have been giving all my goats Dimethox 12.5% for 3 days and I don't think we've drunk any of the milk yet, (phew!)(we had a lot backed up), but I TOTALLY forgot about possibly throwing out the milk! :eek:
I can't find anywhere that it says how long, or if you even need to, and I searched! Can anyone tell me??
Thanks

Here is a thing from Texas A&M. It's about cattle but will give you an idea. (most milk withdrawal studies here in the U.S. are done on cattle)

"Lactation
Sulfonamides are distributed into milk; however, the sulfonamides
that are clinically relevant to food-producing animals are
distributed into milk in concentrations too low to be therapeutic
but high enough to produce residues.{R-103; 105} For many
sulfonamides, 0.5 to 2% of the total dose is found in the milk.{R-31;
32} Distribution into milk varies depending on the amount of non–
protein-bound sulfonamide present in the blood and the amount of
the nonionized and therefore liposoluble form of the medication
present. Sulfonamides with higher pKa values produce a higher
proportion of drug in the blood that is non-ionized,{R-31} and if
other factors, such as the rate of biotransformation, also support it,
may be distributed more easily into milk. For lactating dairy
cattle, concentration of the active parent compound of
sulfamethazine, measured at a specific time in milk, is about 20%
of the concentration in the blood.{R-77}"

I know, right! I almost wanted to drink that milk, it'd probably do us some good! :p But we probably won't; the thing is, now I've gotta figure out which milk in the frig is from the last three days. We usually have it in a kind of chronological order, but my mom's been the one doing it lately, and I'm not sure if she's been doing it the same.;)

Thanks DDFN, interesting read!
