Description

Injectable solution containing tylosin 200mg/mL, as tylosin base

Pack Sizes

Available in 100mL and 250mL multidose vials.

Action

Tylosin is a broad spectrum antibiotic active against Gram+ve bacteria, including staphylococci, streptococci, Corynebacteria spp. and Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae (insidiosa), and Gram-ve bacteria such as Campylobacter coli , as well as selected spirochaetes. It is also active against Mycoplasma spp. of both birds and mammals, including cattle, sheep, goats and pigs.
Because of its spectrum of activity, its lipid solubility and weakly basic reaction (which favours accumulation in inflamed tissues), along with its uptake by macrophages, tylosin is indicated for the treatment of mastitis, metritis, pneumonia and footrot (necrotic pododermatitis).

Indication

Cattle: Treatment and control of acute mastitis, metritis, respiratory infections, footrot (necrotic pododermatitis) and calf diphtheria.
Pigs: Treatment and control of swine dysentery and enteritis associated with the presence of Campylobacter coli and other organisms sensitive to tylosin, swine erysipelas, and pneumonia and arthritis due to Mycoplasma spp.
Sheep and Goats: Treatment of the early stages of peracute and acute contagious agalactia caused by Mycoplasma agalactiae and caprine pleuropneumonia caused by Mycoplasma mycoides var capri (M capri).
