£21.97(exc VAT)£26.36(inc VAT)

A viscous yellow liquid containing 50 mg spectinomycin activity (as dihydrochloride pentahydrate) per ml.

Piglets: For the treatment and control of infectious bacterial enteritis associated with Escherichia coli sensitive to spectinomycin.

Lambs: For the prevention of bacterial neonatal disease (eg: watery mouth disease) in lambs which are at risk of colostrum deprivation.

Legal Category: POM-V

Dosage: Insert the doser in the bottle and push the piece of clear plastic tubing over the end of the pump spout. Press the plunger a few times to fill both the pump and plastic extension tube with medication.

The preparation should be administered well back on the tongue. Each pump of the plunger delivers 1 ml of solution containing 50 mg of spectinomycin.

When not in use, remove the dosing pump from the bottle. Place the clear plastic tube in the neck of the bottle and press the plunger a few times to return any medication in the pump to the bottle. Replace the original cap on the bottle. Before storing for future use, always rinse out the doser with water to prevent the pump parts from sticking.

To ensure a correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing.

Piglets: Piglets under 4.5 kg (10 lb) – 1 pump (1 ml) twice daily. Piglets between 4.5 -7kg (10-15lb) - 2 pumps (2 ml) twice daily. Treatment may be continued twice daily for 3–5 days. If pigs do not improve within 48 hours, re-diagnosis is suggested.

Lambs: 1 pump (1 ml) once only as soon as possible after birth.

Withdrawal Period: Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment.

Lambs: 10 days

Pigs: 12 days

Contra Indications: Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient or pigs over 4 weeks of age or over 7 kg bodyweight. Use with caution in animals suffering from renal damage.
