Oxytet 100 (oxytetracycline injection) veterinary antibiotics 30% oxytetracycline 100ml is a sterile ready-to-use preparation containing 100 mg/mL oxytetracycline HCl, for administration of the broad spectrum antibiotic, oxytetracycline, by injection
ANTIBIOTIC ACTION OF OXYTETRACYCLINE
Oxytetracycline is effective against a wide range of gram-negative and gram-positive organisms that are pathogenic for cattle. The antibiotic is primarily bacteriostatic in effect, and is believed to exert its antimicrobial action by the inhibition of microbial protein synthesis. The antibiotic activity of oxytetracycline is not appreciably diminished in the presence of body fluids, serum or exudates. Since the drugs in the tetracycline class have similar antimicrobial spectra, organisms can develop cross resistance among them. Oxytetracycline is concentrated by the liver in the bile and excreted in the urine and feces at high concentrations and in a biologically active form.
Discontinue treatment with Oxytet 100 at least 22 days prior to slaughter of the animal. Not for use in lactating dairy animals.
A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
GENERAL INDICATIONS FOR USE
A great many of the pathogens involved in cattle diseases are known to be susceptible to oxytetracycline hydrochloride therapy. Many strains of organisms, however, have shown resistance to oxytetracycline. In the case of certain coliforms, streptococci and staphylococci, it may be advisable to conduct culture and sensitivity testing to determine susceptibility of the infecting organism to oxytetracycline. In this manner, the likelihood of successful treatment with Oxytet 100 solution can be determined in advance.
Oxytet 100 is available in 500 mL multidose vials containing 100 mg oxytetracycline hydrochloride per mL.
