Oh, I don't know....since VETS tend to use it at their own doses or the cattle doses. And it is INTENDED as a treatment for Bovine Respiratory Disease (M. haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida, Haemophilus somnus).

Efficacy vs. Nuflor*

Drug # Animals BRD Mortality /Treatment Response
Nuflor 210 0.9% 70.5%
Naxcel 200 1.5% 94.5%
LA-200 105 7.6% 34.3%

Micotil 724 4.6% 85.6% (Don't even think of using this in goats.)

Me...I use it at 3cc/100#'s once a day for 3 days. So far, it's cured lots of snotty noses around here and it's a little cheaper than Naxce. But, I don't use it for skin infections. I've been using it for about 3 yrs. now.

Nuflor is a broad spectrum antibiotic...but it's just too expensive to use for anything other than resp. problems. Especially when others that are cheaper will work for things like open wounds. I can't find a thing on if it will cross into the uterus and mammary like Naxcel.??? Lots of antibiotics won't.
