This treatment applies to the following species:
Manufacturer: Kane Veterinary Supplies

Oxytetracycline Hydrochloride

INJECTABLE SOLUTION

FOR VETERINARY USE ONLY

DIN: 02248883

Description

Noromycin LP is a sterile, clear, stable, solution of Oxytetracycline Hydrochloride, for intravenous or intramuscular administration. Each mL contains 100 mg of Oxytetracycline Hydrochloride in an aqueous solution.

Absorption and Excretion:

By intravenous injection, immediate therapeutic blood levels are achieved. By intramuscular injection, therapeutic levels are achieved within 2 hours. These levels persist for 24 hours or longer. Further, Oxytetracycline diffuses readily into the tissues, so that high concentrations are found in the lungs and mammary gland, as well as in the urine, faeces and milk. For this reason, parenteral therapy is ideally suited in the treatment of pneumonia, enteritis, mastitis and many other systemic conditions.

Advantages:

Noromycin LP offers several advantages to the clinician in practice. These include:

1. Broad spectrum activity, which assures clinical efficacy where narrow spectrum antibiotics fail.

2. Product can be used in lactating dairy cattle.

3. Pain on injection is minimised.

4. Viscosity and syringeability are satisfactory at both 5°C and 24°C.

Noromycin LP Indications

Noromycin LP is indicated in the treatment of infections caused by Oxytetracycline susceptible bacteria in cattle, swine and sheep.

Dosage:

Administer by i.m. or i.v. injection at the rate of 3 mL per 45 kg bodyweight once daily for 2 to 3 days. Higher blood levels can be achieved following i.v. administration of this dosage.

Bacterial Enteritis (Scours) in Nursing Pigs:

As an aid in the prevention of bacterial enteritis (scours) in nursing pigs, inject the sow intramuscularly at the rate of 3 mL per 45 kg bodyweight when symptoms of scours are first noticed.

Cautions:

1. Do not inject more than 20 mL of Noromycin LP at one site. In lactating dairy cattle no more than 10 mL should be injected intramuscularly at one injection site.

2. Occasional sensitivity reactions have been observed following the parenteral administration of Oxytetracycline. If such side effects occur, discontinue use of the drug immediately. Epinephrine solution given intramuscularly is indicated.

3. Noromycin LP should be warmed to body temperature prior to administration.

4. Shock can occur occasionally as a result of rapid intravenous injection.

5. For intravenous administration, Noromycin LP should be diluted with isotonic saline, dextrose or similar solutions. For this, use 25 mL Noromycin LP to each 100 mL or more of diluent and administer slowly.

Warnings

In lactating dairy cattle no more than 10 mL should be injected intramuscularly at one injection site.
