Amoxicillin For Ducks

Amoxicillin is a broad spectrum penicillin antibiotic used to treat certain bacterial infections in poultry. Amoxicillin has activity against penicillin-sensitive Gram-positive bacteria, as well as some Gram-negative bacteria. The gram-positive spectrum of activity includes alpha- and beta-hemolytic streptococci, some Staphylococci species, and Clostridia species. Amoxicillin is also effective against Escherichia coli (E. coli), many strains of Salmonella, and Pasteurella multocida. Amoxicillin is most commonly given to birds who were recently attacked by a predator, to help prevent pasteurellosis (fowl cholera) from bites or scratches.

Egg Withdrawal Period:

1 day withdrawal period for eating eggs. Storage/Stability: Amoxicillin capsules, tablets, and powder for oral suspension should be stored at room temperature (15-30°C) in tight containers. After reconstitution, the oral suspension should preferably be refrigerated (refrigeration not absolutely necessary) and any unused product discarded after 14 days. After reconstitution, the injectable veterinary suspension is stable for 3 months at room temperature and 12 months when refrigerated.

Description

The product is administered in the drinking water. Prepare the solution with fresh tap water immediately before use. Once opened, use the contents of one sachet immediately. Any unused medicated water which should be discarded after 12 hoursIn order to ensure consumption of the medicated water, animals should not have access to other water supplies whilst being treated.

To ensure a correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing. The uptake of medicated water depends on the clinical condition of the birds. In order to obtain the correct dosage the concentration of amoxicillin has to be adjusted taking into account water intake.

Dosage

Amoxicillin/clavulanate – 125-250 mg/kg PO q8-12h or 500 mg/L drinking water (B Speer).

Amoxicillin sodium – 50-250 mg/kg IM, IV q8-12h (B Speer).

Amoxicillin trihydrate – 55-200 mg/kg PO, SC, IM, IV q4-12 h or 200-1500 mg/L drinking water (B Speer).

Ducks: Recommended dosage is 20 mg amoxicillin trihydrate/kg bodyweight for 3 consecutive days.

Contraindications

Amoxicillin exerts its bactericidal action by inhibition of bacterial cell wall synthesis during multiplication. It is therefore, in principle, not compatible with bacteriostatic antibiotics, for example tetracyclines which inhibit multiplication. Synergism may occur with other β-lactam antibiotics and aminoglycosides.

CAUTIONS:

1. Use of the product should be based on susceptibility testing because of reported resistance (up to 50%) in E. coli and Salmonella spp. from chickens. Inappropriate use of the product may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to amoxicillin and may decrease its effectiveness.

2. AMOXICILLIN SP is not effective against β-lactamase producing organisms. AMOXICILLIN SP should not be administered to animals sensitive to penicillins.

3. As with other penicillin-containing preparations, this product should not be given orally or parenterally to small herbivores such as guinea pigs, hamsters and rabbits.
