In Beef Cattle and Non-lactating Dairy Cattle, BiloVet is indicated for use in the treatment of bovine respiratory complex (shipping fever, pneumonia), usually associated with Pasteurella multocida and Arcanobacterium pyogenes; foot rot (necrotic pododermatitis) and calf diphtheria caused by Fusobacterium necrophorum and metritis caused by Arcanobacterium pyogenes.

In Swine, BiloVet is indicated for use in the treatment of swine arthritis caused by Mycoplasma hyosynoviae; swine pneumonia caused by Pasteurella spp.; swine erysipelas caused by Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae; swine dysentery associated with Treponema hyodysenteriae when followed by appropriate medication in the drinking water and/or feed.

Each mL contains 200 mg of tylosin activity (as tylosin base) in 50% propylene glycol with 4% benzyl alcohol, water for injection and hydrochloric acid for pH adjustment.

ADMINISTRATION AND DOSAGE: BiloVet is administered intramuscularly.

Use automatic syringe equipment only.

BEEF CATTLE AND NON-LACTATING DAIRY CATTLE: Inject intramuscularly 8 mg per pound of body weight one time daily (1 mL per 25 pounds). Treatment should be continued 24 hours following remission of disease signs, not to exceed 5 days. Do not inject more than 10 mL per site.
