Swine products

Elanco products address a variety of animal health and performance issues. Click on the logo below to learn more about each product’s specific applications.

  • Hemicell logo

Hemicell® is a unique and patented enzyme that spares energy by acting on β-mannans in soybean meal and other feedstuffs.

Use Paylean® for increased rate of weight gain, improved feed efficiency and increased carcass leanness in finishing swine weighing not less than 150 pounds, fed a complete ration containing at least 16% crude protein for the last 45 to 90 pounds of gain prior to slaughter. Paylean directs nutrients toward quality lean gain and away from fat deposition, resulting in an increase of high-value, lean cuts of meat.

Pulmotil® sets the foundation for nursery-to-finisher health management by controlling respiratory disease associated with Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae and Pasteurella multocida. Its mode of action delivers the active ingredient rapidly to the site of infection and works with the pig’s immune system.

Pulmotil AC® (tilmicosin phosphate) is an aqueous concentrate formulation that combines the benefits of a liquid with the strength of Pulmotil. Pulmotil AC helps control swine respiratory disease associated with Pasteurella multocida and Haemophilus parasuis in groups of swine in buildings where a respiratory disease outbreak is diagnosed.

Skycis is an ionophore indicated for increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in growing-finishing swine when fed for at least 4 weeks.

Tylan® is a therapeutic management tool. U.S. pork producers trust Tylan to provide a reliable, consistent solution to controlling ileitis associated with Lawsonia intracellularis.

Tylan® Injection is used in swine to treat respiratory disease caused by Pasteurella spp, swine arthritis caused by Mycoplasma hyosynovaie and swine pneumonia. Tylan Injection is a cost-effective treatment that producers have trusted for more than 30 years. With assured active ingredient levels in every batch, Tylan Injection delivers dependable results.

Tylan® Soluble, (Tylosin tartrate) is approved for the for the treatment and control of swine dysentery (SD) associated with Brachyspira hyodysenteriae. For the treatment and control of SD associated with Brachyspira hyodysenteriae when followed immediately by Tylan Type A medicated article in feed. For the control of porcine proliferative enteropathies (PPE, ileitis) associated with Lawsonia intracellularis when followed immediately by Tylan Type A medicated article in feed.

Use Tylan® Sulfa-G™ for lowering the incidence and severity of Bordetella bronchiseptica rhinitis; prevention of dysentery associated with Brachyspira hyodysenteriae; control of swine pneumonia caused by bacterial pathogens (Pasteurella multocida and/or Arcanobacterium pyogenes).

Important safety information

The labels contain complete use information, including cautions and warnings. Always read, understand and follow the label and use directions.

Paylean

  • Clinical registration studies showed no statistical difference between the effects of 4.5 and 9 g/ton.
  • Zero-day withdrawal when fed according to label directions.
  • CAUTION: Ractopamine may increase the number of injured or fatigued pigs during marketing. Not for use in breeding swine.

Pulmotil

  • For the control of swine respiratory disease associated with Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae and Pasteurella multocida, feed continuously at 181–363 g/ton for a 21-day period, beginning approximately 7 days before an anticipated outbreak.
  • CAUTION: Federal law restricts medicated feed containing this veterinary feed directive (VFD) drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
  • Feeds containing tilmicosin must be withdrawn 7 days prior to slaughter.

Pulmotil AC (tilmicosin phosphate)

  • Before using this product, it is important to read the entire product insert, including the boxed human warning.

       WARNING: Exposure to tilmicosin in humans has been associated with chest pain, increased heart rate, dizziness, headache, and nausea. Death has been reported following ingestion or injection of tilmicosin. Avoid ingestion. Avoid direct skin and eye contact. In case of human exposure, call 1-800-722-0987 and consult a physician immediately.

    NOTE TO THE PHYSICIAN: The cardiovascular system is the target of toxicity and should be monitored closely. The primary cardiac effects are tachycardia and decreased contractility. Cardiovascular toxicity may be due to calcium channel blockade.

    See User Safety Warnings for additional information.

     

    • Wear overalls, impervious gloves and eye protection when mixing and handling the product. Wash hands after handling the product. Wash affected parts if skin contact occurs. If accidental eye contact occurs, immediately rinse thoroughly with water.

    • Do not allow horses or other equines access to water containing tilmicosin.
    • The safety of tilmicosin has not been established in male swine intended for breeding purposes.
    • Always treat the fewest number of animals necessary to control a respiratory disease outbreak. Prescriptions shall not be refilled.
    • Concurrent use of Pulmotil AC and another macrolide by any route is not advised. Use of another macrolide immediately following this use of Pulmotil AC is not advised.
    • Ensure that pigs have continuous access to medicated water during the treatment period. Monitor pigs for signs of water refusal and dehydration while being treated. If decreased water consumption occurs, replace the medicated drinking water with fresh non-medicated water and contact your veterinarian.
