Dosage and administration
Shake well before use.
Administration is by the intramuscular route for cattle, sheep and pigs and by the intramuscular or subcutaneous route in dogs and cats. The dosage rate is 7mg/kg bodyweight daily for up to 5 days (equivalent to 0.25ml per 5kg daily). Massage the injection site after injection.
The suggested dosage rates are
450 kg
20.0 ml
 65 kg
 3.0 ml
 150 kg
 7.0 ml
 20 kg
 1.0 ml
 5 kg
 0.25 ml
Normal aseptic precautions should be observed. Use a dry syringe for extraction of suspension to avoid hydrolysis of amoxicillin.
If dose volume exceeds 20 ml in cattle or 10 ml in sheep and pigs, it should be divided and injected into two sites.
A separate injection site should be used for each administration.
An appropriately graduated syringe must be used to allow accurate administration of the required dose volume. This is particularly important when injecting small volumes.
