Tilmicosin is a macrolide antibiotic. It is used in veterinary medicine for the treatment of bovine respiratory disease and enzootic pneumonia caused by Mannheimia (Pasteurella) haemolytica in sheep.
Pigs: Prevention and treatment of respiratory disease caused by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, Pasteurella multocida and other organisms sensitive to tilmicosin.
Rabbits: Prevention and treatment of respiratory disease caused by Pasteurella multocida and Bordetella bronchiseptica, susceptible to tilmicosin.
Horses or other Equidae, must not be allowed access to feeds containing tilmicosin. Horses fed with tilmicosin medicated feeds may present signs of toxicity with lethargy, anorexia, reduction of feed consumption, loose stools, colic, distension of the abdomen and death.
Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to tilmicosin or to any of the excipients.
Pigs: Administer in the feed at a dose of 8 to 16 mg/kg body weight/day of tilmicosin (equivalent to 200 to 400 ppm in the feed) for a period of 15 to 21 days.
Rabbits: Administer in the feed at 12.5 mg/kg body weight/day of tilmicosin (equivalent to 200 ppm in the feed) for 7 days.
In very rare cases, feed intake may decrease (including feed refusal) in animals receiving medicated feed. This effect is transient.
Pigs: 21 days
Rabbits: 4 days
