A sterile non-aqueous suspension for parenteral administration, containing in each ml 150 mg amoxycillin as Amoxycillin Trihydrate PhEur in a long acting oily base.
Cattle and Sheep: For the control and treatment of respiratory and other infections caused by amoxycillin susceptible bacteria only.
Pigs: For the treatment of infectious diseases in pigs caused by or associated with organisms sensitive to amoxycillin.
Dogs: For the treatment of infectious diseases in dogs caused by or associated with organisms sensitive to amoxycillin.
Dosage and administration
Cattle, Sheep and Pigs: By intramuscular route only.
Dogs: By subcutaneous injection.
The injection site should be massaged after injection.
The recommended dosage rate is 15 mg amoxycillin per kg bodyweight. This is equivalent to 1 ml/10 kg. One repeat administration may be given after 48 hours.
The maximum injection volume at any one site is set out in the following table:
Cattle 20 ml
Sheep 4 ml
Pigs 5 ml.
Dogs 2.5 ml.
Larger dose volumes should be divided and given into separate sites. Use a dry syringe for extraction of suspension to avoid hydrolysis of amoxycilin.
An appropriately graduated syringe must be used to allow accurate administration of the required dose volume. This is particularly important when injecting small volumes.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment. Cattle and sheep may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 21 days from the last treatment.
Pigs may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 11 days from the last treatment.
Milk for human consumption must not be taken during treatment. Milk for human consumption may be taken only from cattle after 72 hours from the last treatment.

Occasional local reaction of a transient nature may occur at the site of injection.
Not for use in ewes producing milk for human consumption or food processing.
Not to be administered to small herbivores.
Do not use in known cases of hypersensitivity to beta-lactam antibiotics.
As with all penicillins, amoxycillin may cause hypersensitivity and should not be used when an animal is known to be allergic to beta-lactams.
As with all antibiotics, Bimoxyl LA should be used with caution during pregnancy and lactation. There is no evidence that the use of amoxycillin presents any particular hazard either to the dam or to the foetus.
Tolerance studies at twice the normal recommended dose in the named target species have been carried out with adverse effects observed. Treatment is symptomatic.
Penicillins and cephalosporins may cause hypersensitivity (allergy) following injection, inhalation, ingestion or skin contact. Hypersensitivity to penicillins may lead to cross reactions to cephalosporins and vice versa. Allergic reactions to these substances may occasionally be serious.
