Responsible use of Antibiotics
One of the active ingredients (orbifloxacin) in Posatex is an antibiotic. When used correctly, antibiotics have an important role by maintaining health and welfare of animals. However, there are concerns that resistance or resistant bacteria could be transferred from animal to human health, and vice versa, and reduce the effectiveness of some antibiotic treatments. It is vital that antibiotics are used in the correct and appropriate manner to minimise this possibility.
MSD Animal Health supports the responsible use of antibiotics.
For more information please refer to the Responsible Use sections of the NOAH website and Responsible Use of Medicines in Agriculture (RUMA) to download RUMA Guidelines for Responsible use of antimicrobials in animal production. Many farm assurance schemes also produce similar guidelines to support best practice.
For uses, dosage, contra-indications and warnings, please see data sheet. Use medicine responsibly.
For more information please refer to the Responsible Use sections of the NOAH website.
If you are not the prescribing veterinary surgeon, advice should be sought from the medicine prescriber.
