INDICATIONS FOR SWINE
Lincomycin Injectable is indicated for the treatment of infectious forms of arthritis caused by organisms sensitive to its activity. This includes most of the organisms responsible for the various infectious arthritides in swine, such as staphylococci, streptococci, Erysipelothrix and Mycoplasma spp. It is also indicated for the treatment of mycoplasma pneumonia.
As with all drugs, the use of Lincomycin Injectable is contraindicated in animals previously found to be hypersensitive to the drug.
Swine intended for human consumption should not be slaughtered within 48 hours of latest treatment. Not for human use.
The intramuscular administration to swine may cause a transient diarrhea or loose stools. Although this effect has rarely been reported, one must be alert to the possibility that it may occur. Should this occur, it is important that the necessary steps be taken to prevent the effect of dehydration.

When using Lincomycin Injectable containing 25 mg/mL, 1 ml/5 lb body weight will provide 5 mg/lb. When using Lincomycin Injectable containing 100 mg/mL, 1 mL/20 lb. body weight will provide 5 mg/lb.
