1 ml per 10 kg body mass by deep intramuscular, subcutaneous or intravenous injection.
A single intramuscular or subcutaneous injection of 1 ml Bivatop® 200 LA/ 10 kg body mass equivalent to 20 mg oxytetracycline/ kg body mass is indicated to provide sustained antibiotic action over 3 to 5 days for the prevention or treatment of the susceptible disease condition of cattle where re-treatment is impractical due to various animal husbandry reasons. However in more chronic disease conditions a second treatment 48 to 72 hours following the first treatment may be administered.
Intravenous injection of Bivatop® 200 LA does not achieve any long-acting effect. If administered intravenously, Bivatop® 200 LA must be given slowly over a time period of at least 5 minutes to prevent potential collapse of the animal.
Do not administer more than 10 ml at any one subcutaneous or intramuscular injection site and not more than 1 to 2 ml per injection site in small calves.
Withdrawal period: The meat of treated animals may not be used for human consumption within 28 days, and the milk within 4 days, after the last treatment.
