Syringe for the treatment of acute mastitis. Effective against microorganisms which cause acute mastitis. Quickly normalizes milk secretion. Cloxacillin destroys mastitis causing bacteria, including those resistant to most antibiotics, such as Staphylococcus aureus, which produces beta-lactamase, and streptococcus.
Ampicillin is a semi-synthetic penicillin very effective against Streptococcus and Corynebacteria. The combination of Ampicillin and Cloxacillin broadens the spectrum of mastitis causing bacteria that can be controlled; therefore, the use of this product is advised even when there’s no bacterial-related diagnosis.
For use only in Cattle
Dosage: Inject the contents of one syringe in each affected mammary gland every 12 hours. The recommended treatment consists of three intramammary injections every 12 hours. A longer-term therapy can be applied should the veterinarian consider it necessary.
Penicillins and its semi-synthetics derivatives (such as Cloxacillin and Ampicillin) are extensively recognized for being innocuous, the only known adverse effect being hypersensitivity or allergy.
Cases of hypersensitivity to penicillin derivatives, either general (anaphylaxis) or local (allergy) are very rare. Should they occur, treatment should be suspended immediately and epinephrine and/or antihistamines should be administered if/when necessary.
Parenteral administration of tetracyclines, florfenicol, spiramycin, Tylosine or other bacteriostatic antibiotics is not recommended due to possible suppression of the bacteriostatic action of Cloxacillin and Ampicillin.
Empty intramammary syringes can be disposed of as domestic waste.
