Broad spectrum antimicrobial
Active substance: Enrofloxacin 10 g
Excipients (sodium hydroxide, distilled water) ad 100 ml
Enrofloxacin is a broad spectrum chemotherapeutic fluoroquinolone of the last generation of synthetic quinolones with a remarkable bactericidal effect against Gram-positive and Gram-negative germs, including species and strains of Psudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella spp., E. coli, Enterobacter, Camphilobacter, Shigela, Salmonella, Aeromonas, Haemophilus, Proteus, Yersinia, Serratia, Vibrio, myicoplasma and chlamidia. Compared with the rest of quinolones, enrofloxacin has the lowest toxicity. The germicide action occurs by inhibition of DNA-gyrase involved in synthesis of nucleic acids; thus the death of bacterial cell is induced.
Poultry (hen, turkey, racing and ornamental pigeons)
For the treatment of mycoplasmosis, salmonellosis, pasteurelosis, infectious coryza produced by bacteria, mycoplasma and Chlamydia in poultry.
Do not use during the laying period if the eggs are intended for human consumption
METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION
The product is administered orally, via the drinking water, as follows:
In hens, turkeys: 0,5 – 1 ml/liter of drinking water/day, for 3 – 5 days;
In pigeons: 1 ml/liter of drinking water/day, for 5-6 days.
Enrofloxarom 10% solution should be prepared daily with fresh drinking water. The estimated amount of drinking water depends on number of animals and on the daily water consumption.
The drinking water should be medicated during the entire treatment period.
Assess correctly the bird’s body weight in order to avoid under and overdosing.
Do not use simultaneously with chloramphenicol, macrolides, tetracycline, theophylline and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory.
The official and local regulations related to antimicrobial substances should be considered when the product used.
Fluoroquinolones should be used as alternative treatment in case of low or non responsiveness to other classes of antimicrobials under clinical conditions. When possible, fluoroquinolones should be used only basing on the sensitivity tests (antibiotic sensitivity test).
Use of the product ignoring or deviating from the SPC provisions may increase the bacterial antibiotic resistance to fluoroquinolones and may decrease the effectiveness of the treatment with other quinolones due to possible cross-resistance.
Meat and offal: 13 days (turkeys) and 11 days (hens).
Bottles of 50, 100 and 1000 ml.
