This product is effective against Actinomyces, Rickettsia, Mycoplasma and Chlamydia and is therefore recommended for treatment of Mortellaro, Moraxella bovis conjunctivitis in calves, Atrophic Rhinitis and MMA syndrome in pigs, Pasteurella multocida and Mycoplasma infections in poultry. The antibiotic effect is bacteriostatic.
Do not administer to animals with kidney and liver malfunctioning. After long-term treatment, complications may occur due to vitamin B and vitamin K deficiencies, which are caused by disturbances in the microbiological digestion.
