Nuflor Gold (florfenicol) – Vet prescription. My preferred antibiotic for respiratory problems, including pneumonia. Can also be used try to keep mastitis from becoming systemic. I tend to use Nuflor on adults and Excenel RTU on kids, but they are interchangeable. This is a thick liquid, so use Luer Lock syringes, or the needle may blow off the syringe. Dosage is 6 cc per 100 lbs bodyweight given IM for five consecutive days; newborn kids should receive no less than 1/2 cc. Nuflor Gold™ is an injectable solution of the synthetic antibiotic florfenicol. Each milliliter of sterile Nuflor Gold™ contains 300 mg of florfenicol, 300 mg of 2-pyrrolidone, and triacetin qs.
