Contains per ml::
Oxytetracycline base (as dihydrate) 300 mg.
Excipients ad 1 ml.
Oxytetracycline belongs to the group of tetracyclines and acts bacteriostatically against many Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria like Bordetella, Actinomyces, Erysipelothrix, Pasteurella, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus spp. Certain mycoplasma, rickettsiae, protozoa and chlamydia are also sensitive to oxytetracycline. Its mode of action is based on inhibition of bacterial protein synthesis by reversibly binding to 30S ribosomal subunits of susceptible organisms. Tetracyclines are widely distributed in the body, including kidney, lung, muscle, bile, saliva and urine. Oxytetracycline is eliminated unchanged primarily via glomerular filtration. Depending on the dose administered, one injection provides a duration of activity of 3 to 6 days.
Treatment and control of a wide range of common systemic, respiratory, urinary and local infections in cattle, sheep and swine caused by, or associated with, oxytetracycline sensitive organisms such as Bordetella bronchiseptica, Actinomyces pyogenes, Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, Pasteurella, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus spp., and certain mycoplasma, rickettsiae, protozoa and chlamydia. Specific indications include pasteurellosis, pneumonia, atrophic rhinitis, erysipelas, joint ill, navel ill, supportive therapy in bovine mastitis, ovine keratoconjunctivitis (pink eye) and enzootic abortion in sheep.
Hypersensitivity to tetracyclines.
Administration to animals with a seriously impaired renal and/or hepatic function.
Concurrent administration of bactericidal antibiotics such as penicillins and cephalosporins.
After intramuscular administration local reactions of a transient nature, characterised by swelling and/or hardness, may occur.
Use of the product during the period of tooth and bone development, including late pregnancy, can lead to discoloration.
Overdoses may result in nephrotoxicity.
For deep intramuscular administration.
Administer Limoxin-300 LA at the standard dose of 20 mg/kg for 3 to 4 days duration of activity for the treatment and control of conditions caused by organisms sensitive to oxytetracycline. Administer at the high dose of 30 mg/kg for the treatment and control of respiratory infections in cattle, sheep and swine.

Got up one morning to find Fudge (our female rabbit) looking unwell and not as active as usual or interested in food. She lost alot of weight so was took to the vets who gave her some medicine. There was no improvement and she then got poorly legs. She lost most of the use of them and they became splayed out to the side and ‘floppy’. We took her to vet that night where she had about 6 injections! I felt so sorry for her. A couple of days later she started to get better. Her legs straigned and she was able to hop again, although a litle wobbly. She can now hop as normal and is able to support her weight on her legs to clean herself. She just now needs to put on alot more weight. We can then say she has recovered. The vets couldn’t give us a diagnosis but I think it may have been a parasite or a toxin from some plant she may have eaten from the garden. Needless to say we will be checking all our garden plants are safe before letting her explore again.
