Premixes are mixtures of one or more drug substances with suitable vehicles. Premixes are intended for admixture to animal feedstuffs before administration. They are used to facilitate dilution of the active drug components with animal feed. Premixes should be as homogeneous as possible. It is essential that materials of suitable fineness be used and that thorough mixing be achieved at all stages of premix preparation. Premixes may be prepared as powder, pellets, or in granulated form. The granulated form is free-flowing and free from aggregates.
