Monitor the withdrawal periods listed on the label. Do not give this product to humans. Stop using this product at least 28 days before slaughtering cattle or swine. Do not use this product in lactating dairy animals. Rapid intravenous administration can lead to collapse of the animal. Slowly administer over a period of at least 5 minutes. Exceeding an intramuscular dose of 5 mL in adult swine, exceeding the maximum dose recommended (based on body weight), administering for longer than prescribed, or exceeding a 10 mL volume in an intramuscular or subcutaneous injection in beef or dairy cattle can cause antibiotic residues lasting longer than normal withdrawal periods. If you observe any symptoms of adverse reactions, discontinue use and seek veterinary treatment. Some reactions can mean that your animal is having a heart attack or an allergic reaction. Talk to your vet before you use this medication so they can help you if anything goes wrong. Immediately after giving the injection, your animal might have some dark urine from the hemoglobin in their blood. This antibiotic can lead to too much growth of bacteria or fungi that are not killed by this drug. If new signs or symptoms show up, or if things don't get better after treatment, it might be because of this overgrowth. If you think this is happening, stop using the drug and go to the vet.

In Cattle: Subcutaneously or intramuscularly administer one 9mg dose of oxytetracycline for every pound of body weight in veal (pre-ruminating) calves, calves, non-lactating dairy cattle, and beef cattle to treat: Pink eye (infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis associated with Moraxella bovis Bacterial pneumonia associated with shipping fever (Pasteurella spp) in yearlings or calves in cases where retreatment is not practical in keeping with the conditions of husbandry (for example, in range cattle where repeat restraint is not advisable). Intravenously, subcutaneously, or intramuscularly administer one 3mg to 5mg dose of oxytetracycline for every pound of body weight to treat advanced cases of a variety of diseases, including foot rot. Continue treatment for 24-48 hours after signs of the disease have reappeared. Do not treat in excess of 4 days in a row. If signs of improvement are not clear within 24-48 hours of the first treatment, a veterinarian should re-evaluate treatment and diagnosis. Never intramuscularly administer in small calves' necks, as the muscle mass in that region is insufficient. Carefully administer intravenously. Leakage from intravenous injections or perivascular injection can lead to serious injection site swelling. In Swine: Intramuscularly administer one 9mg dose of oxytetracycline for every pound of body weight to treat bacterial pneumonia associated with Pasteurella multocida in cases where retreatment is not practical in keeping with the conditions of husbandry. Intramuscularly administer one 3mg to 5mg dose of oxytetracycline for every pound of body weight for 24-48 hours after disease symptoms subside. Do not administer for a period exceeding 4 days in a row. If signs of improvement are not clear within 24-48 hours of the first treatment, a veterinarian should re-evaluate treatment and diagnosis. In sows, intramuscularly administer one 3mg dose of oxytetracycline for every pound of body weight about 8 hours prior to farrowing or following farrowing completion to control infectious enteritis of baby pigs. In swine under a weight of 25 pounds, administer undiluted at a rate of 9mg per pound, but administer diluted to treat at 3mg or 5mg per pound. To Use: This product treats diseases in swine, non-lactating dairy cattle, and beef cattle caused by organisms susceptible to oxytetracycline. Always use a sterile, thoroughly cleaned syringe and needle for every injection. Sterilize by boiling for 15 minutes in water. In cold temperatures, warm to room temperature prior to administration. Disinfect the rubber bottle can using a suitable disinfectant (like 70% alcohol) prior to withdrawing solution. Similarly clean the injection site with disinfectant. Use a 1"-1 1/2" 16-18 gauge needle for a subcutaneous or intramuscular injection, or a 2"-3" needle for intravenous injection. For subcutaneous injection: Direct a suitable length and gauge needle through the loose neck skin folds in front of the shoulder. Make sure that the needle tip penetrates the skin, but do not allow it to become lodged in the animal's muscle. Prior to injection, gently pull back on the plunger. If blood enters the syringe, you have entered a blood vessel. In this case, remove the needle and choose a different injection site. Slowly inject into the space between the muscle and skin. Do not subcutaneously inject over 10mL in one site. Rotate injection sites between treatments. Reduce the volume at each injection site based on body weight and age, ensuring that only 1ml to 2mL is injected per site to a small calf. For intramuscular injection: Direct a suitable needle into the fleshy portion of a thick muscle, like the thigh, hip, rump, or neck region. Avoid major nerves and blood vessels. Prior to injection, gently pull back on the plunger. If blood enters the syringe, you have entered a blood vessel. In this case, remove the needle and choose a different injection site. Do not inject more than 10mL intramuscularly in any single site in non-lactating dairy cattle and beef cattle, and no more than 5mL in one site in adult swine. Rotate injection sites between treatments. Reduce the volume at each injection site based on body weight and age, ensuring that only 1ml to 2mL is injected per site to a small calf. To prepare an animal for injection: Approximate the vein location. The jugular vein is found in the jugular groove on either side of the neck, running from the jaw angle to right above the brisket and slightly to the side of and above the windpipe. Restrain the animal using a chute or stanchion. Using a cattle leader, rope, or halter, pull the head toward the side of the chute, post, or stanchion to form a bow in the neck, then securely snub the head to prevent any movement. By forming this bow, the outside bow curvature typically exposes the jugular vein, making it easy to access. Do not use a tight halter or rope around the upper neck or throat to restrain the animal, as this can impede the flow of blood. Down animals do not present a restraint problem. Trim the hair in the intended injection area (above the vein in the upper third of the neck). Clean, then disinfect the skin using alcohol or a different suitable antiseptic. For intravenous injection, administer slowly to non-lactating dairy cattle or beef cattle. To enter the vein and inject: Tightly tie the choke rope around the neck near the shoulder to raise the vein. Tie the rope so that it can't loosen, but so that it can easily be quickly untied by pulling at the loose end. If the animal has a thick neck, placing a wood block in the jugular groove between the hide and the rope can provide significant assistance in applying appropriate pressure in the correct spot. The vein is a flexible and soft tube that blood uses to reach the heart. In normal conditions, it cannot be felt or seen. When blood flow is blocked as described, it becomes rigid and enlarge with back pressure. If the choke rope is appropriately tightened, the vein will stand out and be easy to see and feel in a thin-necked animal. To ensure that you have identified the correct vein, use fingers to tape it in front of the choke rope. If you can see or feel pulsations in front of the point you are tapping, you can be sure that you the vein is appropriately distended, You cannot correctly enter the vein unless it has been distended in the manner described. An experienced operator should be able to raise the vein with simple hand pressure, but using a choke rope is a more certain way to approach vein identification. Inserting the needle is a 3-step process. First, insert the needle through the animal's hide. Then, insert it into the vein, which could take 2 to 3 attempts prior to vein entry. The vein may roll away from the needle, particularly when using a less-than-sharp needle. You may steady the vein using the finger and thumb. With the other hand, place the needle directly above the vein and slant it along the length of the vein, either toward the heart or the head. When in proper position, quickly thrusting the needle will cause a blood spurt through the needle, indicating vein entry. Last, once you have entered the vein, insert the needle lengthwise in the vein all the way to the hub. Be careful not to penetrate the other side of the vein. Continuous blood flow through the needle shows that the needle remains in the vein. If blood is not continuously flowing, the needle is either clogged or is no longer in the vein. In either case, make another attempt. If you encounter difficulty, you may try the vein on the other side of the animal's neck. Have an assistant prepare the medication while you place the needle in the proper vein position. Injection should be immediate after vein entry. Keeping the needle in the proper position, quickly pull on the free end of the choke rope to release it. This is a crucial step, as the medication cannot properly enter a blocked vein. Right away, connect the oxytetracycline syringe to the needle, then depress the plunger slowly. If the plunger resists depression, this suggests that the needle is clogged or has come out of the vein. If this happens, procedures will need to be re-started. Watch for neck swelling near the needle, an indication that the medication is not entering the vein. If this occurs, it is recommended to use the vein on the other side. When you have completed the full injection, use a straight pull to remove the needle. Apply pressure for a moment over the injection site to control bleeding from the puncture area with an alcohol-soaked cotton or another suitable antiseptic.
