DRAXXIN: A full course of therapy in a single dose.
An antibiotic which gives record long acting action against pneumonia and respiratory disease has been launched by Pfizer Animal Health.

Field trials demonstrate that a single dose of DRAXXIN provides exceptional effectiveness in treating pneumonia.  This product claims 9 to 15 days of activity against pneumonia in cattle and 5 days in pigs.

In cattle, DRAXXIN is administered at a low-volume dose of 1.1 mL/100 lbs. of body weight. In addition to its
low-volume, single-dose treatment regime, DRAXXIN moves easily through syringes (making it usable in darts), even in cold conditions that are common in the production environment. The pre-slaughter withdrawal period for
cattle treated with DRAXXIN is 18 days.
