Several Misunderstandings Often Made When Using Tilmicosin Products in Winter
Since the drug tilmicosin and its preparations were developed and launched, they have been recognized by a large number of farmers, but at the same time, a small number of users have some misunderstandings about it. In order to improve the scientificity and accuracy of the user's use, give full play to the clinical value of the drug in the prevention and control of epidemic diseases in breeding. We have sorted out the common misunderstandings in its clinical use.
Misunderstanding 1: Mistaking tilmicosin as a comprehensive respiratory medicine
. There are many causes and pathogens of poultry respiratory diseases. Common clinical viral respiratory diseases, such as Newcastle disease, mild influenza, infectious bronchitis, infectious laryngotracheitis etc.; bacterial respiratory diseases, such as Escherichia coli, Pasteurella, hemolytic streptococcus and Avibacterium rhinotracheitis, etc., and mycoplasma diseases.
However, tilmicosin is only a narrow-spectrum antibacterial drug mainly for mycoplasma and for some bacterial diseases. Therefore, when treating respiratory diseases, we must first determine the main causes and pathogens that cause respiratory diseases, and take different countermeasures for different causes.
Misconception 2: The treatment prescription is not compatible.
Respiratory diseases are mostly caused by multiple etiologies and multiple pathogens. Combined medication is often used in the treatment. There are often some misunderstandings in the compatibility of tilmicosin. This drug cannot be mixed with sulfonamides, lincos and other antibiotics, as it may easily result in reduced curative effect and enhanced toxicity. Please avoid mixing them together.
In clinical use, it is recommended to be compatible with antibacterial drugs such as apramycin, florfenicol, and doxycycline to prevent bacterial diseases such as E. coli and salmonella secondary to mycoplasma; Viral drugs such as "Fuzheng Jiedu Oral Liquid, Shuanghuanglian Oral Liquid and Qingwen Jiedu Oral Liquid" are used together.
Misunderstanding 3: The timing of use is wrong
A. Meat and poultry: It is recommended to use it before and after the first and second exemptions. Since 75% to 80% of mycoplasma diseases are caused by immune stress, and mycoplasma is the first invading pathogen of respiratory diseases, it should be controlled as early as possible in clinical use to prevent secondary infection.
B. Laying poultry: young poultry are recommended to be used before and after immunization. Young poultry and adult poultry have strong resistance, and when they clinically show respiratory symptoms, they are generally infected with E. coli or virus. It is recommended to use it with antibacterial or antiviral drugs. .
Misunderstanding 4: Insufficient use of the course of treatment
The biggest feature of mycoplasma disease is the long course of the disease. The pathogen can continuously change the place of residence through genetic recombination, evading the immune attack of the host, and the drug cannot contact the pathogen well, making the curative effect unstable. , high-efficiency drugs must be used, and sufficient use time must be ensured, generally 4 to 5 days is a course of treatment.
Choosing high-efficiency tilmicosin preparations usually increases the safety and solubility of tilmicosin compared with common tilmicosin preparations, improves the absorption rate and bioavailability of tilmicosin, and makes the drug more effective Target organ - lung.
In short, when controlling poultry respiratory diseases, we must pay attention to the prevention and control of mycoplasma diseases, achieve early detection and early treatment, use highly effective anti-mycoplasma drugs, and use antibacterial or antiviral drugs in combination according to the incidence of the disease to prevent secondary infection. Usually a course of 4 to 5 days can be controlled.
