|Product Type||Water soluble|
|Content||Florfenicol 100mg / ml|
Florfenicol is a synthetic broad-spectrum antibiotic that is effective against most Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria isolated from domestic animals. Florfenicol, a fluorinated derivative of chloramphenicol, acts by inhibiting protein synthesis at the ribosomal level and is bacteriostatic.
Florfenicol does not carry the risk of inducing human aplastic anaemia that is associated with the use of chloramphenicol, and also has activity against some chloramphenicol-resistant strains of bacteria.
TAIKOSOL 10% is indicated for the treatment of enteric and respiratory infections caused by E. coli and other florfenicol-sensitive bacteria, particularly of Colibacillary enteritis, respiratory Colibacillosis, Colisepticaemia and complications caused by other infectious diseases in chickens.
35mg per kg body weight of birds. 1ml into 1 litre of drinking water for 3 consecutive days.
