Directions For Use

The suspension should be administered by deep intramuscular injection within the fleshy muscles of the hip, rump, round or thigh, or into the neck, changing the site for each injection. Do not inject subcutaneously, into a blood vessel, or near a major nerve.

Use a 16 or 18 gauge needle, 1.5 inches long. The needle and syringe should be washed thoroughly before use. The needle and syringe should then be sterilized by placing in boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes.Use this product within 28 days of the first puncture and puncture a maximum of 15 times. Consider using automatic injection equipment or a repeater syringe if necessary to avoid exceeding 15 punctures. When using a draw-off spike or needle with bore diameter larger than 16 gauge, discard any product remaining in the vial immediately after use. The injection site should be washed with soap and water and painted with a germicide such as tincture of iodine or 70% alcohol. The product should then be administered by using the following procedure:

1. Warm the vial to room temperature and shake thoroughly to ensure uniform suspension.

2. Wipe the rubber stopper on top of the vial with a piece of absorbent cotton soaked in 70% alcohol.

3. Inject air into the vial for easier withdrawal.

4. After filling the syringe, make sure the needle is empty by pulling back the plunger of the syringe until a small air bubble appears. Then detach the needle from the syringe.

5. Insert the needle deep into the muscle, attach the syringe and withdraw the plunger slightly. If blood appears, withdraw the needle and insert it into a different location.

6. Inject the dose slowly. Do not massage the site of injection.

7. Not more than 10 mL should be injected in one location.

Daily treatment should be continued for at least 48 hours after temperature has returned to normal and all other signs of infection have subsided.

As with any antibiotic preparation, prolonged use may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. If this condition is suspected, stop medication and consult your veterinarian.
