Lincomycin Hydrochloride Soluble Powder (lincomycin hydrochloride) is a water-soluble antibiotic for use in drinking water for broiler chickens and swine.
Broiler Chickens: For the control of necrotic enteritis caused by Clostridium perfringens susceptible to lincomycin.
Swine: For the treatment of swine dysentery (bloody scours).
Store between 20˚C - 25˚C (68˚F - 77˚F) with excursions permitted between 15˚C - 40˚C (59˚F - 104˚F).
Broiler Chickens: Administer at a dose rate of 64 mg of lincomycin per gallon of drinking water. Start medication as soon as the diagnosis of necrotic enteritis is determined. If improvement is not noted within 24 to 48 hours, consult a licensed veterinarian at a veterinary diagnostic laboratory to determine the diagnosis. The drug should be administered for 7 consecutive days.
Swine: Administer at a dose rate of 250 mg of lincomycin per gallon of drinking water. In clinical studies, this dose rate provided an average of 3.8 mg of lincomycin per pound of body weight per day. The drug should be administered for a minimum of 5 consecutive days beyond the disappearance of symptoms (bloody stools) up to a maximum of 10 consecutive days. If water treatment is discontinued prior to this time, a lincomycin treatment program may be continued with lincomycin premix at 100 g lincomycin per ton of complete feed as the sole ration according to label directions.
