Gallimycin-100 Injection Indications and Usage

Gallimycin®-100 Injection is indicated for the treatment of bovine respiratory disease (shipping fever complex and bacterial pneumonia) associated with Pasteurella multocida organisms susceptible to erythromycin.

Warning

Treated animals should not be slaughtered for food within 6 days of the last injection. Temporary tissue irritation follows injection. To avoid excessive trim do not slaughter cattle within 21 days of the last injection. Do not use in female dairy cattle greater than 20 months of age.

A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.

Precautions

In animals weighing over 200 lbs., the neck region is the preferred site for deep intramuscular injection. Since there may be a transient swelling or soreness at the site of injection, it is advisable, when more than one treatment is required, to vary the site of the injection. This is achieved by alternating sides of the neck if necessary, alternating between the leg and neck muscles. No more than 10 mL should be injected at any one site (in small calves under 200 lbs. no more than 4 mL should be injected per site and then only in the heavy muscles of the leg). Swelling or soreness encountered at the site of injection is usually mild, transient and disappears in 2 to 4 days. Deep intramuscular injections will minimize the incidence of local soreness and swelling.

Dosage and Administration

Deep intramuscular injection into the heavy neck muscles, or if necessary for alternating injection sites, into the heavy muscular portion of the leg muscle (round). In calves under 200 lbs., deep intramuscular injection into the heavy muscles of the leg only. Administer 4 mL/100 lbs. body weight (4 mg/lb body weight) once daily for up to 5 days as needed. Use a 1-inch to 2-inch, 16 or 18 gauge needle depending on the animal’s size.

Storage

STORE AT ROOM TEMPERATURE, 15-30°C (59-86°F).

PROTECT FROM FREEZING.
