A clear colourless sterile solution for injection. Each 1 ml contains lincomycin 100 mg (as lincomycin hydrochloride), plus 9 mg benzyl alcohol as a preservative.
Dogs and cats
For the treatment of infections caused by lincomycin susceptible Gram-positive organisms, particularly streptococci and staphylococci, and certain anaerobic bacteria (e.g. Bacteroides, Fusobacterium spp).
Tonsillitis, laryngitis and other upper respiratory tract infections
Lincocin Sterile Solution has proved effective against most causal organisms.
Abscesses, infected wounds and purulent dermatitis
Lincocin Sterile Solution has proved useful in clearing dermal infection since it readily penetrates tissues and maintains its action in the presence of purulent material.
Lincocin Sterile Solution has been used successfully to combat septicaemic conditions caused by organisms sensitive to lincomycin.
For the treatment of infections caused by lincomycin susceptible Gram-positive organisms (e.g. staphylococci, streptococci), certain Gram-negative anaerobic organisms (e.g. Serpulina (Treponema) hyodysenteriae, Bacteroides, Fusobacterium spp.), and Mycoplasma spp.
Lincocin Sterile Solution has been found to be effective in the treatment of swine dysentery. Lincocin Sterile Solution may be used in the inappetant pig when 1–2 injections with a 24-hour interval given intramuscularly at a dose of 10 mg/kg will normally be adequate to return the appetite. Follow-up treatment should be provided either in feed using Lincocin Premix or via the drinking water using Lincocin Soluble Powder.
Enzootic or mycoplasmal pneumonia
Lincocin Sterile Solution has antimycoplasmal activity, and will provide an effective aid in the treatment of the primary infective organisms and the secondary Gram-positive pathogens.
Septic arthritis, foot abscesses
Where these conditions are caused by staphylococci, streptococci, erysipelothrix and mycoplasma sensitive to lincomycin, this antibiotic provides useful treatment by virtue of its ability to penetrate relatively avascular tissue (e.g. joints) and remain active in the presence of purulent material.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

This antibiotic is not effective against E.coli, Salmonella spp, Enterococcus faecalis or yeasts. Not to be used in animals hypersensitive to lincosamides.
Clinical antangonism may exist between lincomycin and erythromycin and concurrent use is therefore not recommended.
