Technical Information

Active Constituent(s)

Each 3 g syringe contains

  • 75 mg Ampicillin (as sodium salt)
  • 200 mg Cloxacillin (as sodium salt)

Indications

Ampiclox L.C. is indicated for the treatment of mastitis in lactating cows caused by organisms sensitive to ampicillin and cloxacillin.

It is particularly recommended where the causative organisms have not been identified or where E. coli are known or suspected to be involved.  The best results will be obtained when treatment is commenced at the first signs of infection, before there is too much tissue damage or abscess formation.

Dosage

Apply one syringe every 12 hours for 3 treatments per affected quarter.
After milking, clean and disinfect the teat with an approved teat disinfectant, and ensure the teat end is dry. Wear clean rubber gloves when applying. Insert the nozzle fully into the teat canal and apply gentle and continuous pressure on the plunger until all the suspension is expressed. Holding the end of the teat in one hand, gently massage upwards with the other to aid dispersion of the antibiotic into the quarter. Dip all teats into an approved teat disinfectant after infusion.

The treated quarter(s) should be milked out as normal at the next normal milking and milk withheld from the general collection.  For advice on feeding calves with milk taken during the withholding period, contact your prescribing veterinarian.

Withholding Period(s)

Milk: Milk taken from cows within 72 hours (6 milkings) following treatment MUST NOT BE USED for human consumption or processing, or fed to bobby calves.

Meat: DO NOT USE less than 30 days before slaughter for human consumption.
