A smooth sterile cream for ophthalmic use. Each 5 g syringe contains 16.7% w/w cloxacillin (as benzathine salt) BP (Vet) in a long-acting base. Cloxacillin benzathine is a semi-synthetic penicillin derived from 6-aminopenicillanic acid.
For the treatment of eye infections caused by Staphylococcus spp. and Bacillus spp. in cattle, sheep, horses, dogs and cats.
For topical administration only. Evert the lower eyelid and instill a steady flow of ointment into the lower conjunctival sac. Cattle and Horses: approximately 5û10 cm of ointment per eye. Sheep: approximately 5 cm of ointment per eye. Dogs and Cats: approximately 2 cm of ointment per eye. Normally a single application only is required; but treatment may be repeated after 48 to 72 hours if necessary. For animals with only a single infected eye it is recommended, to prevent cross infection, that both eyes be treated; treating the uninfected eye first to avoid transferring the infection.
Withdrawal period for meat/milk û nil.
