A white to light tan, free-flowing powder for dissolution in water. Each gram contains lincomycin 400mg. Antibiotic for the treatment of swine dysentry by oral administration via the drinking water.
Legal Category: POM-V
Dosage : The recommended dosage is 33 mg lincomycin hydrochloride per 1 litre of water (approximately 4.5 mg/kg bodyweight), this medicated water must be the sole source of drinking water for the pig. This can be achieved by dissolving 7.5g Lincocin Soluble Powder in 91 litres (20 gallons) of water. The 150g pack will treat 1820 litres (400 gallons) of water. Water proportioning: when using a water proportioner, prepare a stock solution by dissolving 7.5g per litre of water. Set it to deliver 11ml of stock solution per litre of water.
Treatment should be administered for a 10 day period or at least 5 days after clinical signs disappear.
Withdrawal Period: Zero Days
Contra Indications: Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to lincomycin. Antagonism may exist between lincomycin and erythromycin and concurrent use is therefore not recommended.
Do not allow rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, or ruminants access to drinking water containing lincomycin. Ingestion by these species may result in severe gastrointestinal effects.
Occasionally pigs given lincomycin-medicated water may, within the first two days after onset of treatment, develop soft stools and/or mild swelling of the anus. On rare occasions some pigs may show reddening of the skin and mild irritable behaviour. These conditions are usually self-correcting within 5–8 days without discontinuing treatment. If clinical signs have not improved during the first six days of medication, discontinue treatment and re-determine the diagnosis.
Package Quantities: 150g
