DescriptionDoxycycline is a bacteriostatic agent that acts by interfering with the bacterial protein synthesis of sensitive species.Doxycycline is a semi-synthetic tetracycline derived from oxytetracycline. It acts on the subunit 30S of the bacterial ribosome, to which it is linked reversibly, blocking the union between aminoacyl-tRNA (transfer RNA) to the mRNA-ribosome complex, preventing the addition of new aminoacids into the growing peptide chain and thus interfering with protein synthesis.Doxycycline is active against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.Spectrum of activity:Streptococcus spp.Staphylococcus aureusChlamydia spp.Mycoplasma spp.Salmonella spp.Pasteurella multocidaBordetella bronchisepticaCompositionContains per ml:Doxycycline (as hyclate) 100.0 mgSolvents ad. 1 mlIndicationsChickens (broilers): Prevention and treatment of chronic respiratory disease (CRD) and mycoplasmosis caused by microorganisms sensitive to doxycycline.Pigs: Prevention of clinical respiratory disease due to Pasteurella multocida and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae sensitive to doxycycline.The presence of the disease in the herd should be established before treatment.Contra indicationsDo not use in case of hypersensitivity to tetracyclines.Do not use in animals with hepatic dysfunction.Side effectsAllergic and photosensitivity reactions can occur.
