More Information
Drug Name and StrengthCloxacillin Benzathine BP 833 mg
Quantity1 syringe
IndicationTreatment of bovine keratoconjunctivitis where cloxacillin susceptible bacteria (including Moraxella bovis ) are suspected or anticipated as pathogens. Also for the treatment of bacterial keratoconjunctivitis caused by cloxacillin susceptible bacteria in sheep, horses, dogs and cats. Effective against a range of bacteria commonly isolated from the eyes of cattle, sheep, horses, dogs and cats. It is bactericidal and cloxacillin levels persist for at least 48 hours following a single application.
ContraindicationsAdministration to animals with a history of allergic reactions to penicillins.
ActionsCloxacillin is active against penicillin G resistant Staphylococci. It binds to membrane bound proteins known as penicillin binding proteins.
WarningsPeople allergic to penicillin should wear gloves when administering the treatment. Dispose of empty container by wrapping with paper and putting in garbage.
Dosage and AdministrationFor topical administration only. Evert the animal's lower eyelid and instil the ointment liberally into the lower conjunctival sac. Do not allow the plastic nozzle to directly contact the eye (corneal) surface. The consistency ensures even distribution of ointment across the cornea and the conjunctival mucosa. Cattle, sheep, horses. Approximately 15 to 30% of the contents of 1 syringe/eye. Treatment may be repeated at 48 hour intervals if required. If the animal has only one eye infected it is advisable to treat both eyes to avoid cross infection. Always treat the uninfected eye first. Animals should be examined for the presence of foreign bodies in the eye before treatment with Opticlox Eye Ointment. Isolation and treatment of all animals in the group with epiphora, at the time clinical signs first appear in some individuals, may reduce the overall severity of epidemics of keratoconjunctivitis on a herd basis. Fly control and avoiding dusty conditions or long grass will reduce the incidence of eye infections. Dogs, cats. Instil liberally into both eyes on a daily basis. If the animal has only one eye infected, it is advisable to treat both eyes to prevent cross infection. In such cases treat the uninfected eye first to avoid transferring the infection via the syringe.
