Pulmotil™ Premix

This is a restricted veterinary medicine. This product is only available under veterinary authorisation. Pulmotil™ sets the foundation for nursery-to-finisher health management by controlling swine respiratory disease (SRD) associated with Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae and Pasteurella multocida. Its mode of action delivers the active ingredient rapidly to the site of infection and works with the pig’s immune system.

Respiratory disease is the number one cause of nursery death1 and is endemic in many herds worldwide.2 Respiratory disease is usually associated with Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae or Pasteurella multocida. Either bacterium can lead to economic damage from uneven growth and decreased feed efficiency. And once signs of respiratory disease surface, it’s often too late to recover.

Early, proactive intervention with Pulmotil™ helps to maximise value. Pulmotil™ provides two strategies to combat respiratory disease early.

Feeding Pulmotil™ for the duration of lactation (21 days) to control respiratory disease in lactating sows decreases mortality in the farrowing and nursery phase3. The second strategy is to feed Pulmotil™ for 21 days as pigs enter the nursery. In nursery pigs, early intervention for respiratory disease control with Pulmotil™ reduces mortality4.

Pulmotil™ Premix is ideal for the control of pneumonia in pigs, caused by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, Pasteurella multocida, and other organisms sensitive to tilmicosin.

Please speak to your veterinarian about how Pulmotil™ can help in your feed and health protocols.

Important Safety Information

Pulmotil™ Premix will irritate the eyes and skin. Repeated exposure may cause allergic disorders. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale dust. When mixing wear elbow-length PVC gloves and goggles and if dust is present half-face respirator with dust cartridge or canister. If product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water. After each day’s use, wash gloves, goggles, respirator, and if rubber wash with detergent and warm water, and contaminated clothing.

Withholding Periods

Do not use less than 14 days before slaughter for human consumption

Any variation to the registered dose, frequency, duration, route, disease or target species may result in the need to extend the registered withholding period.

Directions For Use

Do not allow horses or other equines access to feeds containing tilmicosin.

Do not use Pulmotil™ 200 Premix in any feed (supplement, concentrate or complete) containing bentonite.

USE ONLY in pig feeds.

DO NOT feed undiluted.

Dosage and Administration

IMPORTANT - PULMOTIL™ 200 PREMIX MUST BE THOROUGHLY MIXED IN FEED BEFORE USE.

Administer in complete feed at a rate of 8-24 mg tilmicosin/kg bodyweight/day.

Feed continuously as the sole ration for a 14-day period, beginning approximately 7 days before an anticipated disease outbreak.

If clinical signs of pneumonia have already been observed, clinically ill pigs may receive supplementary treatment by injection of an approved antibiotic.

Mixing directions

Thoroughly mix Pulmotil™ 200 Premix into the ration. To ensure adequate mixing, it is recommended that a pre-blend of Pulmotil™ 200 Premix be made before incorporation into the total amount of complete feed.

PRECAUTIONS

Bentonite in feeds may affect the efficacy of tilmicosin.

The safety of tilmicosin has not been established in boars intended for breeding purposes.
