Diseases caused by florfenicol susceptible bacteria in cattle and pigs.
Cattle: Treatment of respiratory tract infections due to Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida and Histophilus somni susceptible to florfenicol.
Pigs: Treatment of acute outbreaks of swine respiratory disease caused by strains of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae and Pasteurella multocida susceptible to florfenicol.
Dosage and administration
The injection should be given in the neck.
Cattle: 20 mg florfenicol per kg bodyweight, i.e. 1 ml of solution per 15 kg bodyweight, twice 48 hours apart.
Pigs: 15 mg florfenicol per kg bodyweight, i.e. 1 ml of solution per 20 kg bodyweight, twice 48 hours apart.
The dose volume given at any one injection site should not exceed 10 ml in cattle and 3 ml in pigs.
To ensure a correct dosage bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing.
It is recommended to treat animals in the early stages of disease and to evaluate the response to treatment within 48 hours after the second injection. If clinical signs of respiratory disease persist 48 hours after the last injection, treatment should be changed using another formulation or another antimicrobial and continued until clinical signs have resolved.
