Bimeda UK is pleased to announce the launch of Macrosyn solution for injection for cattle, pigs and sheep [POM-V], which contains 100mg/ml tulathromycin.
Following appropriate diagnostics, Macrosyn solution for injection for cattle, pigs and sheep is indicated for use to treat specific conditions caused by specific bacteria susceptible to tulathromycin:
In cattle, for the treatment of bovine respiratory disease (BRD) (M. haemolytica, P. multocida, H. somni, M. bovis) and infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK) (Moraxella bovis),
In pigs, for the treatment of swine respiratory disease (SRD) (A. pleuropneumoniae, P. multocida, M. hyopneumoniae, H. parasuis, B. bronchiseptica),
In sheep, for the treatment of the early stages of foot rot (Dichelobacter nodosus) requiring systemic treatment.
Bimeda UK General Manager Mark Cokayne commented; 'we are very pleased to announce the launch of Macrosyn solution for injection for cattle, pigs and sheep to the UK marketplace, which is a great addition to Bimeda's extensive range of POM-V products. With short meat withdrawal periods of 22 days for cattle, 13 days for pigs and 16 days for sheep, we are sure that Macrosyn will play an important role in the treatment of infections caused by tulathromycin-sensitive bacteria, following appropriate diagnostics. The small 12.5ml subcutaneous dose for 500kg LW cattle and the convenient 100ml pack size are also attractive features of the product.'
