Oxytetracycline is a member of the tetracycline family of broad-spectrum antibiotics that inhibit protein synthesis in susceptible micro-organisms.
Hexasol LA is specifically formulated to provide initial anti-inflammatory activity for 24-36 hours and sustained antibacterial activity for 5-6 days following a single administration.
Hexasol LA is indicated primarily for the treatment of bovine respiratory disease associated with Mannheimia haemolytica, where an anti-inflammatory and anti-pyretic effect is required.
Hexasol LA may, therefore, be of use in the treatment of disease in cattle caused by such organisms where both anti-inflammatory and anti-pyretic effect is required.
