Contra-indications, warnings, etc
The intramuscular administration of Lincocin Sterile Solution to pigs at higher levels than recommended may result in diarrhoea and loose stools. This antibiotic is not effective against E.coli, Salmonella spp, Enterococcus faecalis or yeasts. Not to be used in animals hypersensitive to lincosamides.
Clinical antangonism may exist between lincomycin and erythromycin and concurrent use is therefore not recommended.
The use of Lincocin Sterile Solution is not recommended in species other than the cat, dog and pig. Do not administer to rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, chinchillas, horses or ruminants as this could result in severe gastro-intestinal disturbance.
Lincocin Sterile Solution should not be given to animals with a known pre-existing monilial infection.
When the intravenous route is to be used in the dog or cat, administration must be slow.
Withdrawal periods
Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment. Pigs may be slaughtered for human consumption 3 days after last treatment.
