Product description

Mycoplasmas are bacteria-like organisms that have a long history of causing diseases in swine, like arthritis and pneumonia. Signs of arthritis: are a reluctance to rise, lameness, swollen joints, pain, and others. Pigs with pneumonia experience dry cough, decrease feed intake, breathing difficulties, fever, and lung lesions. Pigs get infected because of poor quality housing, high stocking density, poor ventilation, stress… These infections spread fast and are a real challenge for veterinarians and producers. Lincomix is an injectable solution prescribed for the treatment of infectious arthritis and mycoplasmal pneumonia in swine. Lincomix contains Lincomycin HCL, a powerful antibiotic effective against a wide variety of bacterial infections. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Lincomix penetrates deeply and works fast to fight organisms at the infection site.
