DOXYVET 750 WSP

COMPOSITION:

Contains per g:
Doxycycline hyclate 750 mg

DESCRIPTION:

Doxycycline belongs to the group of tetracyclines and acts bacteriostatic against many Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria like E. coli, Bordetella, Campylobacter, Haemophilus, Pasteurella, Salmonella, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus spp. Doxycycline is also active against Chlamydia, Mycoplasma and Rickettsia spp. Doxycycline inhibits bacterial protein synthesis. Doxycycline has great affinity to the lungs and is therefore especially useful for treatment of bacterial respiratory infections.

INDICATIONS:

Doxyvet 750 wsp is effective against respiratory and gastrointestinal infections caused by micro-organisms sensitive to doxycycline, like E. coli, Salmonella, Mycoplasma, Pasteurella, Bordetella, Streptococcus, Campylobacter and Haemophilus spp. in calves, poultry and pigs.

Do not administer to animals hypersensitive to tetracyclines. Do not administer to animals with a severe impaired liver functionor an active rumen and intestinal microbial flora. Do not use in layers producing eggs for human consumption.

SIDE EFFECTS:
