Item Number: LINCOCINSP
Lincocin Soluble Powder is a white to light tan, free-flowing powder for dissolution in water. Each gram contains lincomycin (as Lincomycin Hydrochloride) 400 mg.
Antibiotic. For the treatment of swine dysentery by oral administration via the drinking water.
Dosage and administration
The recommended dosage is 33 mg lincomycin hydrochloride per 1 litre of water (approximately 4.5 mg/kg b.w.), this medicated water must be the sole source of drinking water for the pig. This can be achieved by dissolving 7.5 g Lincocin Soluble Powder in 91 litres (20 gallons) of water. The 150 g pack will treat 1820 litres (400 gallons) of water.
Water proportioning: when using a water proportioner, prepare a stock solution by dissolving 7.5 g per litre of water. Set the proportioner to deliver 11 ml of stock solution per litre of water.
Treatment should be administered for a 10 day period or at least 5 days after clinical signs disappear.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to lincomycin. Antagonism may exist between lincomycin and erythromycin and concurrent use is therefore not recommended.
Do not allow rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, or ruminants access to drinking water containing lincomycin. Ingestion by these species may result in severe gastrointestinal effects.
Occasionally pigs given lincomycin-medicated water may, within the first two days after onset of treatment, develop soft stools and/or mild swelling of the anus. On rare occasions some pigs may show reddening of the skin and mild irritable behaviour. These conditions are usually self-correcting within 5–8 days without discontinuing treatment. If clinical signs have not improved during the first six days of medication, discontinue treatment and re-determine the diagnosis.
Avoid contact with the product or inhaling dust. If accidental skin contact occurs, wash off with soap and water. Persons who are hypersensitive (allergic) to the active ingredient should handle the product with care. Following eye contamination, flush with water for 10-15 minutes.
Do not store above 25°C. Discard medicated drinking water if not used within two days. Fresh stock solution should be prepared every two days.
Keep out of reach and sight of children.
For animal treatment only.
