Drug Facts

Warning

Milk taken from animals during treatment and for 48 hours (4 milkings) after the latest treatment must not be used for food. A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in preruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.

Discontinue use of this drug for the following time periods before treatment animals are slaughtered for food: Cattle-10 days, Sheep-9 days, Swine-7 days. Not for use in horses intended for food.

Dosage Levels

The recommended daily dosage of penicillin is 3, 000 units per pound of body weight (one mL per 100lb body weight). Continue daily treatment until recovery is apparent and for at least 1 day after Symptoms disappear, usually in 2 or 3 days. Treatment should not exceed 4 consecutive days.

Directions for Use

Penicillin-G Procaine should be administered by the intramuscular route. A thoroughly cleaned, sterile needle and syringe should be used for each injection (needles and syringes may be sterilized by boiling in water for 15 minutes). Before withdrawing the solution from the bottle, disinfect the rubber cap on the bottle with a suitable disinfectant such as 70 percent alcohol. The injection site should be similarly cleaned with the disinfectant. Needles of 16 to 18 gauge and 1 to 1½ inches long are adequate for intramuscular injection.

INTRAMUSCULAR INJECTION: In livestock, intramuscular injection should be made by directing the needle of suitable gauge and length into the fleshy part of a thick muscle such as the rump, hip, or thigh region; avoid blood vessels and major nerves. Before injecting the solution, pull back gently on the plunger. If blood appears in the syringe, a blood vessel has been entered; withdraw the needle and select a different site. No more than 10mL should be injected at any one site in adult livestock; rotate injection sites for each succeeding treatment.

Care of sick animals: The use of antibiotics in the management of disease is based on an accurate diagnosis and an adequate course of treatment. When properly used in the treatment of diseases caused by penicillin-susceptible organisms, Most animals treated with Penicillin-G Procaine show a noticeable improvement within 24 to 48 hours. I improvement does not occur within this period of time, the diagnosis and course of treatment should be re-evaluated. It is recommended that the diagnosis and treatment of animal diseases be carried out by a veterinarian. Since many diseases look alike but require different types of treatment, the use of professional veterinary and laboratory services can reduce treatment time, cost, and needless losses. Good housing, sanitation, and nutrition are important in the maintenance of healthy animals and are essential in the treatment of disease.

READ ENTIRE BROCHURE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS PRODUCT

FOR INTRAMUSCULAR USE ONLY

Indications

Penject is recommended for treatment of bacterial pneumonia (shipping fever) caused by Pasteurella multocida in cattle and sheep, erysipelas caused by Erysipelothrix insidiosa in swine, and strangles caused by streptococcus equi in horses.

Precautions

Exceeding the highest recommended daily dosage of 3,000 units per pound of body weight, administering at recommended levels for more than 4 consecutive days, and/or exceeding 10mL intramuscularly per injection site may result in antibiotic residues beyond the withdrawal time.

Penicillin-G Procaine should be injected deep within the fleshy muscles of the hip, rump, round, or thigh. Do not inject this material subcutaneously (under the skin), into a blood vessel, or near a major nerve.

Procaine penicillin G is a substance of low toxicity. However, side effects, or so-called allergic or anaphylactic reactions-sometimes fatal, have been known to occur in animals hypersensitive to penicillin and procaine. Such reactions can occur unpredictably with varying intensity. Animals administered Penicillin-G Procaine should be kept under close observation for at least one-half hour. Should allergic or anaphylactic reactions occur, discontinue use of the product and immediately administer epinephrine following manufacturer’s recommendations; call a veterinarian. As with all antibiotic preparations, use of this drug may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. A lack of response by the treated animal, or the development of new signs or symptoms suggest that an overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms has occurred. In such instances, consult your veterinarian. Since bactericidal drugs may interfere with the bacteriostatic action of tetracyclines, it is advisable to avoid giving penicillin in conjunction with tetracyclines. Penicillin-G should be stored between 2-8°C (36-46°F). Warm to room temperature and shake before using.

Directions For Use

Penject should be administered by the intramuscular route. A thoroughly cleaned, sterile needle and syringe should be used for each injection (needles and syringes may be sterilized by boiling in later for 15 minutes). Before withdrawing the solution from the bottle, disinfect the rubber cap on the bottle with a suitable disinfectant, such as 70 percent alcohol. The injection site should be similarly cleaned with the disinfectant. Needles of 14 to 16 gauge and not more than 1 inch long are adequate for injections.
