Dosage in Veterinary Medicine

Lincocin is used not only in medicine, but also in veterinary medicine to treat bacterial infections in cats and dogs. This drug is effective against a wide range of Gram-positive bacteria and some types of anaerobic bacteria. Proper dosage and adherence to veterinarian recommendations are critical to successful treatment and minimizing the risk of side effects.

Lincocin for cats

The usual dose of Lincocin for cats is 10 to 20 mg per kilogram of body weight every 12 to 24 hours. The dosage may vary depending on the severity of the condition and the sensitivity of the infectious agent.

Lincocin is usually administered intramuscularly or subcutaneously to cats. Oral administration is less preferred because of possible vomiting or diarrhea.

Lincocin for dogs

The recommended dose of Lincocin for dogs is also 10 to 20 mg per kilogram of body weight every 12 to 24 hours. In cases of severe infections or when the infection is located in hard-to-reach areas (e.g. bone infections), the dosage may be increased on the advice of a veterinarian.

The drug may be administered intramuscularly or subcutaneously to dogs, depending on the situation and the veterinarian's recommendation.

Duration of treatment: The duration of Lincocin treatment is usually between 5 and 14 days, but can be adapted depending on the pet's recovery dynamics.

It is important to regularly monitor the pet's condition during treatment to detect possible side effects or the need for dosage adjustments in a timely manner.

The duration of the Lincocin 500 mg antibiotic therapy course depends on the type and severity of the infection, as well as the clinical response of the patient. It is not recommended to discontinue the antibiotic prematurely, even if the symptoms of the infection have disappeared.

Availability and cost

Lincocin 500 mg is not available for purchase without a prescription in most countries.

Lincocin 500 mg price can vary significantly depending on geographic region, pharmacy, and insurance coverage. Generic versions of Lincocin are available on the pharmaceutical market. The cost of generic Lincocin is usually lower when compared to the original product from Pfizer. Generics contain the same active ingredients and dosage as the original Lincocin and are rigorously tested to ensure that they meet quality and safety standards.

Interaction of Lincocin with other medicines

Erythromycin and other macrolides: Co-administration of Lincocin500 with macrolide antibiotics such as erythromycin may result in competitive inhibition of binding to bacterial ribosomes, reducing the effectiveness of both drugs.

Clindamycin: Like macrolides, clindamycin may interact with Lincocin, reducing the antibacterial effects of both drugs due to their similar mechanisms of action.

Certain NSAIDs, including indomethacin and ibuprofen: May increase the plasma concentration of Lincocin, potentially leading to an increase in both efficacy and risk of side effects.

Neuromuscular blockers: Lincocin may potentiate their effects and lead to an increase in their relaxant effect on skeletal muscles. This is important to consider when planning surgery and anesthesia.

Oral contraceptives: Although there is no direct evidence that Lincocin reduces the effectiveness of these contraceptives, it is known that some other antibiotics may reduce their effect. Women taking oral contraceptives are advised to consult their physician about the possible need for additional methods of contraception during treatment with Lincocin.

GI drugs: Drugs that alter gastric acidity or intestinal motility, such as antacids and opioid analgesics, may affect the absorption of Lincocin. This may require adjusting the dosage or timing of medications.
