A sterile aqueous solution containing Oxytetracycline Dihydrate Ph.Eur equivalent to 300 mg/ml of oxytetracycline base.
Dosage & administration
Alamycin LA 300 is a broad spectrum antibiotic indicated for use in the treatment of conditions caused by, or associated with, organisms sensitive to oxytetracycline in cattle, sheep and pigs. A wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including Bordetella bronchiseptica, Actinomyces pyogenes, Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, Pasteurella spp., Staphylococcus spp., and Streptococcus spp., are sensitive to oxytetracycline. Certain mycoplasma, rickettsiae, protozoa and chlamydia are also sensitive to oxytetracycline.
Alamycin LA 300 is specifically formulated to provide a prolonged action, resulting in sustained antibacterial activity. Following intramuscular administration effective blood levels persist for 3 - 4 days at a dose rate of 20 mg/kg and for 5 - 6 days at a dose rate of 30 mg/kg. Maximum blood levels are achieved between 4 - 6 hours following administration making Alamycin LA 300 suitable for the treatment of acute infections.
Administer by deep intramuscular injection to cattle, sheep and pigs for the treatment and control of conditions caused by organisms sensitive to the action of oxytetracycline.
Alamycin LA 300 can be administered at the standard dose of 20 mg/kg in order to obtain 3 to 4 days duration of activity or at the high dose of 30 mg/kg for prolonged duration of activity (i.e. activity maintained for 5 to 6 days). Use aseptic injection technique.
