Posology and administration route
Use in drinking water
The recommended dose is
10 mg florfenicol per kg body weight daily (corresponding to 5 ml of the product / 100 kg b.w.) given for 5 consecutive days.
The uptake of medicated water depends on several factors including the clinical state of the animals and local conditions such as ambient temperature and humidity. In order to obtain the correct dosage water uptake has to be monitored and the concentration of florfenicol has to be adjusted accordingly. If however it is not possible to obtain sufficient uptake of medicated water animals should be treated parenterally.
Indications for use
Treatment and metaphylaxis of swine respiratory disease associated with Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae and Pasteurella multocida susceptible to florfenicol.
