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 (caused by Streptococcus uberis, S.dysgalactiae, S.agalactiae, Staphylococcus aureus, coagulase negative Staphylococci), metritis caused by Trueperella pyogenes, respiratory infections caused by Pasteurella multocida, foot-rot (necrotic pododermatitis) and calf diphtheria caused by Fusobacterium necrophorum.
Pigs: Treatment and control of ileitis associated with Lawsonia intracellularis, swine erysipelas caused by Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, pneumonia caused by Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and M. hyorhinis, and arthritis due to Mycoplasma hyosynoviae and M. hyorhinis.
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).
