Q & A

Q. Hi! I have a donkey that is a bit under the weather. The vet recommended Terramycin. Do I give one dose only or do I have to repeat the treatment? Regards Leona
A.

As this product isn't licensed for use in horses or donkeys, your vet has prescribed it on the cascade. As a result, I'm afraid you'd have to go back to them for dosing advice - the product hasn't been tested for safety in these species (also, tetracyclines have been associated with some serious side effects in equids).

Sorry I can't help more,

Q. i have 1 and 3 yr old dog weigh about 10 kg..terramycin LA 200mg/ml stock on hand. the dog has been injected with about 1ml dose of that med by a vet.my dogs have kennel cough.was my vet had a mistake?he gave my pet another dose the next day.im worried about this detail that is not for dog s recommended. ..but fortunately my dogs are seemingly okay after the treatment..the coughing thing had subside.
A.

The active ingredient oxytetracycline is effective against Bordetella bronchiseptica (one of the causative agents of kennel cough); the product is not licensed, but a vet can choose to use an off-license product, after weighing up the risks and benefits, if they think it is the best treatment available for that case.
I would advise you to discuss this with your vet, who will be able to tell you why they felt it was the best product to use and explain how they came to the decision (which is probably perfectly justified!).

Q. Can terramycin la be given to a dog with tooth Infection?
A.

Terramycin isn't licensed for use in dogs; this means that there isn't any data on safety or effectiveness. It isn't usually the antibiotic of choice for dental problems, so I would advise you to discuss with your vet and follow their directions.

Q. can we use T M. L.A WITH LEVOFLOXACIN
A.

Levofloxacin currently doesn't have a veterinary license in the EU, and as far as I am aware there are no combination toxicity studies. However, in general I would strongly advise against mixing different classes of antibiotics except under specific veterinary advice and prescription.
Remember, given the risks of bacterial resistance and "superbugs", fluroquinolones like Levofloxacin should only ever be used under veterinary advice and then only as a last resort, in food producing animals.

Q. What happens if a sheep gets injected more than the indicated dosage?
A.

The higher the dose, the higher the risk of side effects (e.g. kidney or liver failure, rumen and gut disorders, and local reactions and abscesses at the injection site). In addition, the withdrawal times are calculated based on the normal dose- with a higher dose, the milk and meat withdrawal times will often be significantly prolonged. In addition, an increased dose will NOT result in better antibiotic action!

Q. Could injecting a ram with teramycin make him infertile?
A.

That isn't a recognised side effect of the drug. As far as I'm aware, the only way that a Terramycin injection could cause infertility would be if you injected the ram in the testicles and he was unlucky enough to have a tissue reaction to it.

Q. would it be a good idea to treat newborn lambs with terramycin LA to help prevent ill joint. If so what dosage ?

Thank you
A.

I'm afraid this isn't a question I'm permitted to answer; your own vet will be able to advise you best on the situation you have on your farm.

Q. Hi,
How often can I dose my sheep whith Teramycin LA?
A.

A single dose will last for 3-5 days, so you shouldn't need to use a second dose. If the infection doesn't resolve, you should discuss it with the prescribing vet.

Q. I have injected my lamb with terramycin LA as it is only a few days old, very small twin and is coughing/wheezing so seems to have a touch of pneumonia. Only thing is I can't find anywhere where it says how often it can be done, i.e if no improvement tomorrow can it have another dose? Thanks
A.

Generally, a course of terramycin should last 3-5 days, to kill all the bacteria and reduce the chance of bacterial resistance developing.
However, I'd be a bit concerned about using it in a lamb so young (it can cause problems for tooth and bone development), so I'd advise you discuss with your vet and see if there are more appropriate antibiotics that you could continue treatment with.

Q. I think I have made a huge mistake. After having received the go ahead to inject my dog with terramycin at Christmas, with good success. Last night, as I had none of that I used 5ml terramycin LA. The dog has been urinating uncontrollably for a few weeks and has been walking with difficulty. His legs seem also uncontrollable (wobbly). This morning he cannot stand - and I have read that it is not for use on dogs! I live on a farm way out of town, this is the reason for self-medicating. What must I do, can this be rectified. So sorry! Doberman 45kg 7years old.
A.

Terramycin's active ingredient is oxytetracycline, which is relatively safe in dogs - however, the LA formulation is not licensed for use in dogs, and as far as I'm aware, there aren't any safety studies.
I would strongly advise that you get in touch with your vet as soon as possible and discuss it with them, as your dog needs urgent attention - whether his deterioration is due to tetracycline poisoning or not, he needs to be seen to.
I hope that helps,

Q. i injected terramycin 10ml on the other side of the ear and 5ml on the other side my sow is around 150 kilograms is this ok or there will be a problem ? can i do the same tomorrow ? can you please advice me as soon as possible, thanks
A.

Although you have to split doses above 10ml (which you;ve obviously done), you also have to avoid injection sites used on previously - so if possible, you'll have to select a slightly different site for each future injection.
I appreciate its difficult, but its the best way to avoid a reaction or abscess forming. Good luck!
