Indications and Usage
In cattle it is indicated in the treatment of respiratory infections caused by susceptible strains of Pasteurella multocida, Mannheimia haemolytica and Histophilus somni. It is recommended in the treatment of acute mastitis caused by Echerichia coli strains susceptible to marbofloxacin during the lactation period.
In pigs it is indicated in the treatment of Metritis Mastitis Agalactia Syndrome (MMA syndrome, postpartum dysgalactia syndrome, PDS) caused by bacterial strains susceptible to marbofloxacin.
Bacterial infections with resistance to other fluoroquinolones (cross resistance). Administration of medication to an animal previously found to be hypersensitive to marbofloxacin or other quinolone is contradicted.
Administration and Dosage
The recommended dosage is 2mg/kg/day (1ml/50kg) of marbofloxacin injections given intramuscularly to the intended livestock or pet, any increase in dosage should be supervised by your animal care specialist. Marbofloxacin injection shouldn’t be administered if any hypersensitivity is discovered.
Refer to an animal care specialist for guidelines on dosage. Do not exceed what they advise, and complete the full treatment, as stopping early can result in a recurrence or worsening of the problem.
Fluoroquinolones should be reserved for the treatment of clinical conditions which have responded poorly, or are expected to respond poorly, to other classes of antimicrobials. Whenever possible, fluoroquinolones should only be used based on susceptibility testing official and local antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when the product is used.
Efficacy data have shown an insufficient efficacy of the product for the treatment of acute mastitis caused by gram positive strains.
Studies in laboratory animals (rabbit, rat) have not produced any evidence of a teratogenic and embryotoxic effects or any maternal toxicity of marbofloxacin. Safety of the product has been shown in cows during gestation and in suckling pigs and calves.
