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. Product Uses: For the treatment of eye infections caused by Staphylococcus spp. and Bacillus spp. in cattle, sheep, horses, dogs and cats. Dosage Admin: 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.
