Caution: Federal law restricts medicated feed containing this veterinary feed directive (VFD) drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
For salmon, trout and catfish. Romet 30® is an antimicrobial powder containing sulfadimethoxine with an ormetoprim potentiator. Both Romet 30® and Romet TC® work by interfering with the folic acid (a Vitamin B) synthesis pathway. Romet® is typically used to treat Furunculosis and ESC.
Romet® causes no toxic problems in fish or humans, and tissue examinations revealed no changes in muscle, kidney or other critical organ samples as animals gain folic acid from a healthy diet. Production: Romet 30® must be mixed in with the fish feed at the feed mill; this makes the feed 100% effective. Unfortunately feed mills are not always likely to mix Romet 30® due to a convenience issue.
Withdrawal: Both Romet 30® and Romet TC®‘s withdrawal period can be as short as 3 days for catfish. (This means that with a 5-day treatment period and 3-day withdrawal period, a catfish treated with Romet can be slaughtered 8 days after the drug is initiated.) Salmonids have a required 42-day withdrawal period from Romet before being slaughtered. Withdraw time is dependent on water temperature.
*Compared to other drugs Romet 30® has a shorter depletion time in the body and is rapidly broken down in feces and aquatic sediments.

A new formulation of hydrolyzed fish protein concentrate that significantly improves the palatability of Romet® feeds which treat furunculosis and ESC. Growers can count on effective disease control because better palatability means improved medicated feed consumption and more antibiotic uptake. For salmon, trout and catfish.
Production: The “TC” in Romet TC® stands for “Top Coat” this Romet TC® can be self-applied or applied in the feed mill. The self-application aspect of Romet TC® is what makes the product appealing. Due to the fact that Romet TC® is a top coat it is 2/3rds of Romet 30®‘s strength. Romet TC® can be applied to any type of feed.
Dosage: Feed between 2%-3% of the fish’s body weight per day. For further information consult the Romet® Calculator.
