Enrofloxacin belongs to the group of quinolones and acts bactericidal against mainly Gram-negative bacteria like Campylobacter, E. coli, Haemophilus, Pasteurella, Salmonella and Mycoplasma spp.
Interflox-200 Oral is indicated for treatment of infections caused by bacteria susceptible to enrofloxacin in chickens and turkeys (Avibacterium paragallinarum, Pasteurella multocida, Mycoplasma spp.) and for the treatment of infectious diseases due to Pasteurella multocida and bacterial enteritis due to infection with E.coli in rabbits.
The prophylactic use of Interflox-200 Oral.
Known (cross-)resistance to (fluoro)quinolones in the flock intended for treatment.
Administration to animals with a seriously impaired hepatic and/or renal function.
Administration to poultry producing eggs for human consumption or to layer replacement birds within 14 days of coming into lay.
Administration to pregnant or lactating animals.
Hypersensitivity to the active substance, other (fluoro)quinolones or to any of the excipients.
Enrofloxacin should be used when clinical experience, supported where possible by sensitivity testing of the causal organism, indicates enrofloxacin as the active substance of choice. Whenever possible, fluoroquinolones should only be used based on susceptibility testing. If no clinical improvement is achieved within 2-3 days, alternative antimicrobial therapy should be considered. The use of fluoroquinolones during the growth phase combined with a marked and prolonged increase in the intake of drinking water, and hence active ingredient, possibly due to high temperatures, may potentially be associated with damage of the articular cartilage.
Do not combine Interflox-200 Oral with products rich in aluminium or magnesium, which may impair the absorption of enrofloxacin.
For oral administration via drinking water.
Chickens and turkeys:
1 ml per 20 kg body weight (10 mg/kg) for 3 - 5 days.
Rabbits: 1 ml per 20 kg body weight (10 mg/kg) for 5 days.
Medicated drinking water should be made up fresh each day just before it is offered to the animals. Determine (total) body weight as accurately as possible to avoid misdosing. Make sure that the entire dose offered has been consumed.
No other water source should be available during the treatment period.
