Product description

Liquamycin LA-200 is a sterile, ready-to-use solution for administration in cattle and pigs.

Active ingredients

Each mL of Liquamycin LA-200 contains:

  • Oxytetracycline base as oxytetracycline dihydrate 200 mg

Indications for use

  • Liquamycin LA-200 is intended for use in the treatment of the following diseases in beef cattle; dairy cattle; calves, including preruminating (veal) calves; and swine when due to oxytetracycline-susceptible organisms:

  • Cattle:

    • Liquamycin LA-200 is indicated in the treatment of pneumonia and shipping fever complex associated with Pasteurella spp. and Hemophilus 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:

    • Liquamycin LA-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.
    • In sows, Liquamycin LA-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:

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

    • A single dosage of 9 mg of Liquamycin LA-200 per lb of body weight administered subcutaneously is recommended in the treatment of the following conditions:

    • 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;

    • infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (pinkeye) caused by Moraxella bovis. Liquamycin LA-200 can also be administered by subcutaneous or intravenous injection at a level of 3–5 mg of oxytetracycline per lb of body weight per day. In the treatment of severe foot rot and advanced cases of other indicated diseases, a dosage level of 5 mg/lb of body weight per day is recommended. Treatment should be continued 24–48 hours following remission of disease signs; however, not to exceed a total of 4 consecutive days. Consult your veterinarian if improvement is not noted within 24–48 hours of the beginning of treatment.

  • Swine:

    • A single dosage of 9 mg of Liquamycin LA-200 per lb of body weight administered intramuscularly in the neck region 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.
    • Liquamycin LA-200 can also be administered by intramuscular injection at a level of 3–5 mg of oxytetracycline per lb of body weight per day. Treatment should be continued 24–48 hours following remission of disease signs; however, not to exceed a total of 4 consecutive days. Consult your veterinarian if improvement is not noted within 24–48 hours of the beginning of treatment.
    • For sows, administer once intramuscularly in the neck region 3 mg of oxytetracycline per lb of body weight approximately 8 hours before farrowing or immediately after completion of farrowing.
    • For swine weighing 25 lb of body weight and under, Liquamycin LA-200 should be administered undiluted for treatment at 9 mg/lb but should be administered diluted for treatment at 3 or 5 mg/lb.
