For adult animals, it is recommended that the dose be split and given in two injection sites.
  • Cattle: Not more than 20 ml per site.
  • Pigs: Not more than 10 ml per site.
  • Sheep and goats: Not more than 5 ml per site.
  • For pigs under 10 kg, it is preferable to inject subcutaneously. This route is not preferred for other animals a sit
  • may cause some swelling.


Injection in the neck is preferable to the rump as this tends to give higher antibiotic blood levels and causes less tissue damage. Inject deep into the fleshy part of the muscle. Temporary discomfort may be caused by intramuscular injection; massaging the site of injection will reduce discomfort and will help to disperse the antibiotic at the site of the injection.

NB: For rapid recovery, a prompt and accurate diagnosis is essential. It is , therefore, always advisable to consult your veterinarian for a correct diagnosis.

As with all oxytetracycline solutions, darkening may occur during use without affecting efficacy.
