Solution for injection – Florfenicol
Florfenicol is a synthetic broad-spectrum antibiotic effective against most Gram (+) and Gram (-) bacteria isolated from domestic animals.
Florfenicol acts by inhibiting bacteria proteins synthesis at the ribosomal level, thus is bacteriostatic. However, in vitro tests have shown that florfenicol has a bactericidal activity against the most commonly isolated bacterial pathogens involved in respiratory diseases.
FLORKEM® 300 mg/ml is indicated for cattle and pigs.
Preventive and therapeutic treatment of respiratory tract infections due to Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida and Histophilus somni susceptible to florfenicol. The presence of the disease in the herd should be established before the preventive treatment.
Treatment of acute outbreaks of swine respiratory disease caused by strains of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae and Pasteurella multocida susceptible to florfenicol.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Intramuscular use: 20 mg florfenicol per kg bodyweight, i.e. 1 ml of solution per 15 kg bodyweight, twice 48 hours apart.
Subcutaneous route: 40 mg florfenicol per kg bodyweight, i.e. 2 ml of solution per 15 kg bodyweight, once.
Intramuscular use: 15 mg florfenicol per kg bodyweight, i.e. 1 ml of solution per 20 kg bodyweight, twice 48 hours apart.
The dose volume given at any one injection site should not exceed 10 ml in cattle and 3 ml in pigs.
To ensure a correct dosage body weight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing.
It is recommended to treat animals in the early stages of disease and to evaluate the response to treatment within 48 hours after the second injection. If clinical signs of respiratory disease persist 48 hours after the last injection, treatment should be changed using another formulation or another antibiotic and continued until clinical signs have resolved.
Do not use in adult bulls or boars intended for breeding purposes.
Do not administer in cases of hypersensitivity to the active ingredient or any of the excipients.
Meat and offal:
- IM: 34 days.
- SC: 45 days.
Milk: not permitted for use in lactating animals producing milk for human consumption.
Meat and offal: 9 days.
Do not use in piglets of less than 2 kg.
Use of product should be based on susceptibility testing of the bacteria isolated from the animal. If this is not possible, therapy should be based on local (regional, farm level) epidemiological information about susceptibility of the target bacteria.
Bottle (50; 100; 250; 500 ml).
