Terramycin® 100 Injectable Solution is a sterile, stable, ready-to-use solution containing the equivalent of 100 mg/mL of oxytetracycline hydrochloride as the magnesium complex in a P.V.P. base. This formulation allows therapeutic Terramycin® blood levels to be sustained over a 2 day period in horses, cattle, sheep and pigs following a single I/M injection of 1 mL/10kg bodyweight with virtually no pain or tissue reaction. May be given by the I/V route as a loading dose.
Terramycin® is a broad spectrum antibiotic and its use is indicated for the treatment and control of conditions caused by, or associated with, Terramycin®-susceptible organisms. A large number of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, certain Mycoplasma species, chlamydia and Rickettsiae are sensitive to Terramycin®.
Indicated for alimentary tract infections, respiratory infections, genitouripary infections, septicaemias, as an adjunct to surgical interference, control of various topical infections, e.g. following wounds, bites, etc. and infections of unknown aetiology where broad spectrum activity is required.
Further indications include anaplasmosis, actinobacillosis, blackleg, calf diphtheria, calf pneumonia, mastitis (with systemic involvement), metritis, navel/joint ill and leptospirosis.
1mL/10kg by intramuscular, subcutaneous or intraperitoneal injection every 48 hours (IM & IV only in horses). Where prompt, high blood levels of Terramycin® are required, 1mL/10kg of Terramycin® 100 should be administered intravenously. Administration of Terramycin® 100 by this route supplies effective blood levels for up to 24 hours.
It is recommended that the dose be divided and administered into separate injection sites to minimise local tissue irritation. Not more than 20mL should be given at any one site.
For most conditions, a period of treatment of 2-4 days is sufficient, however, conditions and circumstances will undoubtedly be encountered in which longer periods will be indicated.
In assessing the dosage for any animal, the particular conditions applying to the case may call for suitable modification of the generally suggested rates.</li
