So for those who use this product. Have you read on the label before that it says to refrigerate? It also says to keep at room temp so have no idea which is correct.

I feel like if its to stay refrigerated it should come packaged with an icepack right? Mine didn't.

I threw out my old old bottle and I never checked to see if it said that on it.

But I received a complimentary replacement bottle for the one that arrived open (didnt loose much so I can still use it).

I have one at the barn and now this new one. Trying to decide if it needs to go in the fridge or not.

Does it give a temperature range it should be kept at?
says store below 30 degrees C (86*F) - or room temperature

then it says "product expires one year after opening, keep refrigerated"

which is why Im confused.

Hmmm never even read it. I didn't put mine in the fridge because it didn't come in an icepack, so didn't even think of it. I sure hope it isn't ruined.

Where on your bottle does it say refrigerate Stacy? I just grabbed mine is says:

Storage:
Store below 30 C (room temperature)
See pack stamp for batch and expiry

it doesnt have any special seal on it so I dont think thats it. But maybe -- usually if it means that it just flat out says "refrigerate after opening"

If your bottle was out in some serious heat, it probably isn't good. The problem with giving stuff like that is the efficacy isn't as good. So you could potentially not be giving a strong enough dose and then create resistance. Then you aren't left with much for coccidia treatment.

But just giving them more without knowing how strong it is, is bad also.

They shipped mine from FL during our heat wave and Im sure it didnt leave FL when it was below 86 degrees. So I will be contacting the company to see what their take on this is.

I bet your bottle is ok, Stacey but I would definitely call to be sure. But a bottle that has been sitting out in high heat for a month isn't going to be.

At least now you know.

TiffofMo - I would definitely not use that Baycox since it wasn't refrigerated and also was heated up for a month.
