Dosage and administration
Subcutaneous use.
A single subcutaneous injection of 2.5 mg tulathromycin/kg bodyweight and 3 mg ketoprofen/kg bodyweight (equivalent to 1 ml/40 kg bodyweight). For treatment of cattle over 400 kg bodyweight, divide the dose so that no more than 10 ml are injected at one site.
To ensure correct dosage bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing.
For any respiratory disease, it is recommended to treat animals in the early stages of the disease and to evaluate the response to treatment within 48 hours after injection. If clinical signs of respiratory disease persist or increase, or if relapse occurs, treatment should be changed, using another antibiotic, and continued until clinical signs have resolved.
If there is persistent elevated body temperature 24 hours after treatment initiation, the responsible veterinarian must evaluate the necessity of further anti-pyretic treatment. The stopper may be safely punctured up to 20 times. When treating groups of animals in one run, use a draw-off needle that has been placed in the vial stopper or an automatic syringe to avoid excessive broaching of the stopper. The draw-off needle should be removed after treatment.
