ENROFLOXACIN 100 mg/mL

PACK SIZE

100mL Single vial

INDICATIONS

Bacterial infections of bones in pigs and cattle. Mastitis in cows where the causative organisms have been established to be either E. coli or Pseudomonas. Appropriate intramammary treatment with another antibiotic should be used in combination with systemic treatment (other than oral) with Enrofloxacin 100. Infection of the male reproductive tract (prostatitis, vesiculitis, orchitis) in the bull. Other infections of cattle and pigs where poor tissue penetration by other antimicrobial drugs can be expected and where the condition is caused by a susceptible organism which is not expected to respond readily to other antibiotics. Indiscriminant use of antibiotics may lead to the development of resistance. Randlab Enrofloxacin 100 should be used in individual animals in line with the above recommendations. Treatment of groups of food producing animals is only recommended when culture and sensitivity testing indicate Randlab Enrofloxacin 100 is the only product likely to be effective.

Chemistry: Randlab Enrofloxacin 100 Injectable Solution contains enrofloxacin, an anti-bacterial of the 4-quinolone group.

Mode of action: Randlab Enrofloxacin 100 Injectable Solution inhibits the enzyme DNA gyrase which plays a major role in the replication of DNA. Inhibition of this enzyme leads to functional disturbances with blockage of certain stages in synthesis, resulting in death of the bacterium. This mode of action rules out cross resistance between Randlab Enrofloxacin 100 Injectable Solution and other anti-bacterials commonly used in veterinary medicine.

Spectrum of activity: Randlab Enrofloxacin 100 Injectable Solution is active against a wide range of gram negative and gram positive bacteria and Mycoplasma species.

Randlab Enrofloxacin 100 Injectable Solution is reserved for use for the following indications only:

1. Bacterial infections of bones in pigs and cattle.

2. Mastitis in cows where the causative organisms have been established to be either E. coli or Pseudomonas. Appropriate intramammary treatment with another antibiotic should be used in combination with systemic treatment (other than oral) with Randlab Enrofloxacin 100 Injectable Solution.

3. Infection of the male reproductive tract (prostatitis, vesiculitis, orchitis) in the bull.

4. Certain infections of cattle and pigs, in locations where poor tissue penetration by other antimicrobial drugs can be expected and where the condition is caused by a susceptible organism which is not expected to respond readily to other antibiotics.
