Shake the vial vigorously before use to obtain a homogenous suspension. Apply massage to the site after subcutaneous and intramuscular injections. If the dose is more than 20 ml for cattle and 5 ml for sheep, it is recommended to be divided and injected into two different sites. Penicillin preparations generally hydrolyze quickly in the watery environment. For this reason, dry needle and syringe should be used for injection. Asepsis and antisepsis should be taken into account during administration.
Cattle and sheep should not be slaughtered for human consumption during the treatment and for 30 days following the last treatment. Cow milk should not be used for human consumption during the treatment and for 5 days (10 milkings) following the last treatment. Sheep milk should not be used for human consumption during the treatment and for 7 days (14 milkings) following the last treatment. Withdrawal period for the injection site is 50 days in cattle and sheep. As the withdrawal period for milk is long, it is not recommended to use in sheep producing milk for human consumption.
