|Penicillin G Benzathine & Penicillin G Procaine Suspension - 150,000 Units per mL|
It is normally recommended that any bacterial infection be treated as early as possible and with a dosage that will give effective blood levels. Although the recommended dosage of this product will give longer detectable penicillin blood levels than penicillin G procaine alone, it is recommended that a second dose be administered at 48 hours when treating a penicillin susceptible bacterial infection.
The use of antibiotics in the management of disease is based on an accurate diagnosis and an adequate course of treatment. When properly used in the treatment of diseases caused by penicillin-susceptible organisms, most animals treated with the product will show a noticeable improvement within 24 to 48 hours. If improvement does not occur within this period of time, the diagnosis and course of treatment should be re-evaluated. It is recommended that the diagnosis and treatment of animal diseases be carried out by a veterinarian. Since many diseases look alike but require different types of treatment, the use of professional veterinary and laboratory services can reduce treatment time, costs and needless losses. Good housing, sanitation and nutrition are important in the maintenance of healthy animals and are essential in the treatment of disease.
As with all antibiotic preparations, use of this drug may result in overgrowth on non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. A lack of response by the treated animal, or the development of new signs or symptoms suggests that an overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms has occurred. In such instances, consult your veterinarian,
Since bacterial drugs may interfere with the bacteriostatic action of tetracycline, it is advisable to avoid giving penicillin in conjunction with tetracyclines.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
A thoroughly cleaned, sterile needle and syringe should be used for each injection (needles and syringes may be sterilized by boiling in water for 15 minutes).
Before withdrawing the solution from the bottle, disinfect the rubber cap on the bottle with a suitable disinfectant, such as 70 percent alcohol. The injection site should be similarly cleaned with the disinfectant. Needles of 14 to 16 gauge, and not more than 1 inch long, are adequate for injections.
A subcutaneous injection should be made by pinching up a fold of the skin between the thumb and forefinger. The mid-neck region is the preferred injection site. Insert the needle under the fold in a direction approximately parallel to the surface of the body. When the needle is inserted in this manner, the medication will be delivered underneath the skin between the skin and the muscles.
Proper restraint, such as the use of a chute and nose lead is needed for proper administration of the product.
