INDICATIONS FOR SWINE:
LincoMed® 100 is indicated for the treatment of infectious forms of arthritis caused by organisms sensitive to its activity. This includes most of the organisms responsible for the various infectious arthritides in swine, such as staphylococci, streptococci, Erysipelothrix and Mycoplasma spp.
It is also indicated for the treatment of mycoplasma pneumonia.
As with all drugs, the use of LincoMed® 100 is contraindicated in animals previously found to be hypersensitive to the drug.
Residue Warning: Swine intended for human consumption should not be slaughtered within 48 hours of latest treatment.

LincoMed 100 Injection Caution
If no improvement is noted within 48 hours, consult a veterinarian.
The intramuscular administration to swine may cause a transient diarrhea or loose stools. Although this effect has rarely been reported, one must be alert to the possibility that it may occur. Should this occur, it is important that the necessary steps be taken to prevent the effects of dehydration.
