Orbenin Ophthalmic Eye Ointment 16.67% w/w is a sterile off-white, viscous stable suspension of Cloxacillin Benzathine in a non-irritant ophthalmic base with 3% aluminium stearate. Effective against a range of bacteria commonly isolated from the eyes of cattle (including New Forest Disease), sheep, horses, dogs and cats. It is bactericidal in action and its formulation facilitates persistence of effective cloxacillin levels following a single application.
Legal Category: POM-V
For external use only.
Evert the lower eyelid and instil the ointment liberally into the lower conjunctival sac (e.g. approximately ¼ to ½ tube per eye in cattle and horses, ¼ tube per eye in sheep and 1/10 of a tube per eye in dogs and cats).
For the treatment of New Forest Disease in cattle and Contagious Ophthalmia (Pink Eye') in sheep, one application only is normally required, but treatment may be repeated at intervals of 48 hours in cattle and 72 hours in sheep if necessary. Treatment should be repeated at 24 hourly intervals in dogs, cats and horses.
If the animal only has one infected eye, it may be advisable to treat both eyes to prevent cross infection. In such cases, it is better to treat the uninfected eye first to avoid transferring infection via the tube nozzle.
Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment. Cattle, sheep and horses may only be slaughtered for human consumption after last treatment.
Milk: cattle and sheep: zero hours.
Meat: cattle, sheep & horses: zero days.
Package quantities: 3g syringe
