Important safety information
The labels contain complete use information, including cautions and warnings. Always read, understand and follow the label and use directions.
- Feed at 4.5 to 9.0 g/ton to finishing swine in a complete ration containing at least 16% crude protein, for the last 45 to 90 lbs. of gain (group average).
- 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.
- 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- Feeds containing tilmicosin must be withdrawn 7 days prior to slaughter.
- CAUTION: To be used by, or on the order of, a licensed veterinarian
- Not for injection. For use in swine only.
- 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.
- The safety of tilmicosin has not been established in male swine intended for breeding purposes.
- Concurrent use of Pulmotil AC and another macrolide by any route, or use of another macrolide immediately following this use of Pulmotil AC, is not advised.
- Swine intended for consumption must not be slaughtered within 7 days of treatment.
- Pulmotil AC label
- For control of porcine proliferative enteropathies (PPE, ileitis): Feed 100 g of tylosin per ton (2.5 pounds Tylan 40 per ton) of complete feed for 21 days. Alternatively, feed 100 g of tylosin per ton (2.5 pounds Tylan 40 per ton) of complete feed for at least three weeks, followed by 40 g tylosin per ton of complete feed until pigs reach market weight. Alternatively, feed 40 to 100 g of tylosin (1.0 to 2.5 pounds of Tylan 40) per ton of complete feed for 2 to 6 weeks immediately after medicating with 250 mg tylosin (as Tylan Soluble) per gallon in drinking water for 3 to 10 days. Feed continuously as the sole ration when feeding Tylan. Diagnosis should be confirmed by a veterinarian when results are not satisfactory.
- For maintaining weight gains and feed efficiency in the presence of atrophic rhinitis: Feed 100 g of tylosin per ton (2.5 pounds Tylan 40 per ton) of complete feed. Feed continuously as the sole ration.
- For control of swine dysentery: Feed 100 g of tylosin per ton (2.5 pounds Tylan 40 per ton) of complete feed for at least three weeks. Follow with 40 g tylosin per ton (1 pound Tylan 40 per ton) of complete feed until pigs reach market weight.
- For the treatment and control of swine dysentery: Feed 40 to 100 g of tylosin (1.0 to 2.5 pounds of Tylan 40) per ton of complete feed for 2 to 6 weeks immediately after medicating with 250 mg tylosin (as Tylan Soluble) per gallon in drinking water for 3 to 10 days.
- Recommendation: Begin feeding Tylan at 12-15 weeks of age or 3 weeks prior to seroconversion5,6, because gross or microscopic lesions appear well in advance of seroconversion/disease.
- Zero-day withdrawal when fed according label directions.
- Tylan label
- Inject intramuscularly 4 mg per lb. of body weight (1mL per 50 lbs.) twice daily. Treatment should be continued 24 hours following remission of disease signs, not to exceed 3 days. Do not inject more than 5 mL per site.
- Do not administer Tylan Injection to swine within 14 days of slaughter.
- CAUTION: Do not mix Tylan 200 Injection with other injectable solutions as this may cause a precipitation of the active ingredients. Do not administer to horses or other equines. Injection of tylosin in equines has been fatal.
- PRECAUTION: Adverse reactions, including shock and death, may result from overdosage in baby pigs.
- Do not attempt injection into pigs weighing less than 25 pounds (0.5 mL) with the common syringe. It is recommended that Tylan 50 Injection be used in pigs weighing less than 25 pounds.
- For the treatment and control of swine dysentery, medicate with 250 mg tylosin per gallon in drinking water for 3 to 10 days, depending upon severity of infection. Alternatively, medicate with 250 mg tylosin per gallon in drinking water for 3 to 10 days, followed by 40 to 100 g tylosin per ton of complete feed (Type C medicated feed manufactured from TYLAN Type A medicated article) for 2 to 6 weeks.
- For control of porcine proliferative enteropathies (PPE, ileitis), medicate with 250 mg tylosin per gallon in drinking water for 3 to 10 days, followed by 40 to 100 g tylosin per ton of complete feed (Type C medicated feed manufactured from TYLAN Type A medicated article) for 2 to 6 weeks.
- Swine must consume enough medicated water to provide a therapeutic dose. Only medicated water (250 mg tylosin per gallon) should be available while medicating with TYLAN Soluble.
- CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. Avoid contact with human skin.
- RESIDUE WARNING: Swine must not be slaughtered for food within 48 hours after treatment.
- For maintaining weight gains and feed efficiency in the presence of atrophic rhinitis; lowering the incidence and severity of Bordetella bronchiseptica rhinitis; prevention of swine dysentery (bloody scours) caused by Serpulina hyodysenteriae; control of swine pneumonias caused by bacterial pathogens (Pasteurella multocida and/or Actinomyces pyogenes).
- Thoroughly mix 2.5 pounds Tylan 40 Sulfa G in one ton of Type C feed to provide 100 grams of tylosin and 100 grams of sulfamethazine per ton.
- WARNING: Feeds containing Tylan 40 Sulfa-G must be withdrawn 15 days prior to slaughter.
- Swine being fed with Skycis (narasin) should not have access to feeds containing pleuramutilins (e.g., tiamulin) as adverse reactions may occur. If signs of toxicity occur, discontinue use.
- Do not allow adult turkeys, horses or other equines access to narasin formulations.Ingestion of narasin by these species has been fatal. Not approved for use in breeding animals because safety and effectiveness have not been evaluated in these animals.
- Note: Clinical registration studies showed no benefit in feed efficiency when the narasin concentration in the diet was 15 ppm (13.6 g/ton).
