Packing2-10ml ampoule or 5-30, 50ml, 100ml bottle
Each ml contains Enrofloxacin 100 mg.
Enrofloxacin is a used to treat infections in animals caused by . Enrofloxacin belongs to a general class of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones. Other related drugs in this class include ciprofloxacin. Enrofloxacin is thought to inhibit the synthesis of DNA within the bacteria, resulting in bacterial death. Enrofloxacin can only be obtained from a veterinarian or by pres cription from a veterinarian.
Indicated for infections caused by various kinds of sensitive bacteria or mixed infections.
1) Yellow scour of newborn pigs (under 7 days old) and white scour (under 1 mouthold) caused by E. coli
2) Hemorrhagic enteritis, diarrhea, alimentary toxicosis, typhoid fever or paratyphoid fever caused by sensitive bacteria, as well as secondary infections caused by epidemic diarrhea
3) Common scour, lamb dysentery and pasteurellosis caused by sensitive bacteria
4) Swine streptococcosis and hydropsy caused by E. coli
5) Swine enzootic pneumonia, atrophic rhinitis, pneumonia and bronchitis
6) White diarrhea, colibacillosis, fowl cholera and chronic respiratory disease
Pharmacological action: N/A
Usage and administration:
Intramuscular injection, a single dose of 0.2ml/kg body weight for cattle, sheep, pigs, fowls and deer, and 0.2ml/kg body weight for dogs and rabbits for one treatment period. Curative effect can be achieved after one injection. For severe infections one more injection can be added 24 hours after the first injection. Animals with serious dehydration can be treated concurrently with oral rehydration salt. Halve the dosage for prophylactic treatments.
Side effect and contraindication:
Enrofloxacin and the other fluroquinolone antibiotics can cause developmental cartilage abnormalities. As a consequence most veterinarians try to avoid these drugs in young animals.
Animals with severe kidney or liver problems may need a reduced dose of enrofloxacin. Hydration should be monitored and fluid therapy used in animals at risk for dehydration. Enrofloxacin should be used with caution or avoided in animals at risk for seizures. This drug is not used in humans due to central nervous system stimulation. Enrofloxacin should not be used for regional antibiotic perfusion because it is too irritating and will cause vasculitis.
Cattle 14 days, pig 10 days.
Storage and expired time：
Tightly sealed and store in a cold place, avoid lights.
I couldn’t find a good youtube video teaching people how to syringe feed a sick guinea pig when the pig doesn’t want to voluntarily suck the syringe…so I made a demonstration. PLEASE NOTE: THE ONE SITUATION WHERE A SICK GUINEA PIG COULD GET WORSE FROM FORCE FEEDING IS WHEN THEY HAVE INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION/TORSION. THIS IS WHY YOU MUST SEE A VET WITHIN ONE DAY OF YOUR PIG BEING SICK-TO RULE OUT OBSTRUCTION AND INSURE SYRINGE FORCE FEEDING IS SAFE. Also, when a pig stops eating that is a huge sign that something is wrong and needs to be addressed. Guinea pigs are herd animals that hide illness until the very late stages. By the time your pig begins to act sick, he/she is very sick. A visit to a guinea pig knowledgable vet is a must. In the hours leading up to that vet visit, syringe force feeding your sick guinea pig can save his/her life. If your guinea pig is having droppings, then you can be fairly certain they are not suffering from total gut obstruction and force feeding is safe and the smart thing to do until you get them to the vet. Within just hours of stopping eating, a guinea pig’s liver begins to undergo metabolic changes that quickly worsen the animals health. This is why I stress- a guinea pig who stops eating must be force fed (with the caveat that intestinal obstruction is ruled out quickly) and must see a vet.
Someone on a guinea pig forum who saw this commented there that I have not mentioned in the video to feed SLOWLY. This means slowly squoosh the food out of the syringe as opposed to shooting it out quickly (where it would shoot to the back of their throat and cause aspiration). Also feed slowly in terms of how much time you allow the pig to chew and clear his mouth of its contents before you add more. If you do not do it this way you put the pig at higher risk of aspiration (more commonly known as “something going down the wrong pipe”, or breathing some of the food into the trachea.
