CAUTIONS:

1. Treated pigs may develop some stool softening or mild diarrhea within 36 hours of treatment initiation.

Should these reactions be more severe than described above, discontinue the use of the drug.

2. Not for use in breeding swine.

5. Do not allow rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, dairy cattle or other ruminants access to feeds containing lincomycin. Ingestion by these species may result in severe gastrointestinal effects or metabolic disorders (i.e. Ketosis in dairy cattle).
