Product description

Bio-Mycin 200 is a sterile, ready-to-use solution of the broad spectrum antibiotic oxytetracycline by injection.

Active ingredients

Each mL of Bio-Mycin 200 contains:

  • 200 mg of oxytetracycline

Indications for use

Bio-Mycin 200 is intended for use in the treatment of the following diseases in beef cattle, dairy cattle and swine when due to oxytetracycline-susceptible organisms:

  • Cattle:

    • Bio-Mycin 200 is indicated in the treatment of pneumonia and shipping fever complex associated with Pasteurella spp. and Haemophilus spp.; infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (pinkeye) caused by Moraxella bovis; foot-rot and diphtheria caused by Fusobacterium necrophorum; bacterial enteritis (scours) caused by Escherichia coli; wooden tongue caused by Actinobacillus lignieresii; leptospirosis caused by Leptospira pomona; and wound infections and acute metritis caused by strains of staphylococci and streptococci organisms sensitive to oxytetracycline.
  • Swine:

    • In swine, Bio-Mycin 200 is indicated in the treatment of bacterial enteritis (scours, colibacillosis) caused by Escherichia coli; pneumonia caused by Pasteurella multocida; and leptospirosis caused by Leptospira pomona.
  • Sows:

    • Bio-Mycin 200 is indicated as an aid in the control of infectious enteritis (baby pig scours, colibacillosis) in suckling pigs caused by Escherichia coli.

Administration and dosage

Cattle:

  • Bio-Mycin 200 is to be administered by intramuscular, subcutaneous (SC, under the skin), or intravenous injection according to Beef Quality Assurance Guidelines.

  • A single dosage of 9 milligrams of Bio-Mycin 200 per pound of body weight administered intramuscularly or subcutaneously is recommended in the treatment of the following conditions: 1) bacterial pneumonia caused by Pasteurella spp. (shipping fever) in calves and yearlings, where retreatment is impractical due to husbandry conditions, such as cattle on range, or where their repeated restraint is inadvisable; 2) infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (pinkeye) caused by Moraxella bovis.

  • Dosage guide:

    • At the first signs of pneumonia or pinkeye administer a single dose of Bio-Mycin 200 by deep intramuscular injection or subcutaneous injection according to the following weight categories.
    • Do not administer more than 10 mL at any one injection site (1 to 2 mL per site in small calves).

  • Bio-Mycin 200 can also be administered by intravenous, subcutaneous, or intramuscular injection at a level of 3 to 5 milligrams of oxytetracycline per pound of body weight per day. In the treatment of severe foot-rot and advanced cases of other indicated diseases, a dosage level of 5 milligrams per pound of body weight per day is recommended. Treatment should be continued 24 to 48 hours following remission of disease signs; however, not to exceed a total of four consecutive days. Consult your veterinarian if improvement is not noted within 24 to 48 hours of the beginning of treatment.

Swine:

  • In swine a single dosage of 9 milligrams of Bio-Mycin 200 per pound of body weight administered intramuscularly is recommended in the treatment of bacterial pneumonia caused by Pasteurella multocida in swine, where retreatment is impractical due to husbandry conditions or where repeated restraint is inadvisable.

  • At the first signs of pneumonia administer a single dose of Bio-Mycin 200 by deep intramuscular injection according to the following weight categories.

  • Do not administer more than 5 mL at any one injection site.
